Cuba maintains its commitment to welcome 5 million visitors in 2018 despite the devastating effects caused by Hurricane Irma as it passed through the country last September, according to the commercial director of the Ministry of Tourism (Mintur)

He advanced that in the next International Tourism Fair “FitCuba”, to be held from May 2 to 5 in Santa Maria Key and with the United Kingdom as a guest country, it is planned to “fine-tune” the contracting of operations for the winter 2018- 2019 and surpass the results of commercialization of tourist offers.

Like Everything Else, Trump Wrecks Travel to Cuba, Too – Via The Root


By Angela Helm

If you’re like me, practically all of your friends, associates and even one rogue co-worker took a trip to Cuba in the last year (only one, however, bought this writer back a cigar, ahem). Without exception, all loved the island-nation filled with black people, salsa, and respite from life in the United States, rolled into a financially reasonable travel destination.

Travel Destinations: Holguin

Via Cuba Travel Site 

Holguin as a tourist destination, in Cuba, is distinguished by its authenticity, diversity and high level of sustainability. It also stands out for its picturesque relieves of great scenic value. It shows a set of tangible elements, loaded with cultural symbols and resulting in a platform for dialogue not only between cultures but also between man and nature.

The extraordinarily crystalline waters and white sand of the north coast demonstrate the excellence of its beaches. We have the hop-on hop-off bus transfer to the beaches and surrounding places. For lovers of nature, the sunset on these beaches is a unique formulation that contrasts with the progressive predominance of green vegetation over the blue of the sea
