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)

Oligarchy v.s Democracy

f0021337

“When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the U.S. political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favor policy change, they generally do not get it.”

hqdefault

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.

From May 2 to 6, 2018 this space will be open, where professionals and visitors will enjoy the varied offers that characterize Cuba and this time Villa Clara, as a tourist destination in the central region of the country. A fair of a professional nature, where they will dedicate days to commercial and promotional exchange.

To this spectacular destination, specialists and promoters of the leisure industry will also visit and appreciate in addition to the bounties of their keys, other cities in development: Caibarien, Remedios, Sagua la Grande and Santa Clara, which complement the offer of Cuban tourism.

On this occasion, it will be dedicated to the United Kingdom as the guest of honor and to the sun and beach modality as a product.

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
