Despite the #US blockade: “In #Cuba the Industry 4.0 is coming soon”

Ecological Farmers in Humboldt Park / #Baracoa #Cuba #EcoTourism Via @VParadisoBCA

Read the original HERE

Practical information and budget details

  • The agro-ecological visit is an optional addition you can request, included in the price for one of the park’s trails (except the Balcón de Iberia trail) or the Taco bay boat ride. This visit has to be requested 1 or preferably 2 days in advance of your visit to Humboldt Park, at the Ecotur agency in Baracoa. The families and farms you will visit may vary from one date to another.
  • To access the National Park, you have to go through the facilities at the entrance, which have a Visitors Centre as well as washrooms.
  • The agro-ecological visit, the various trails and the boat ride in Humboldt Park count on excellent guides who belong to local communities and who know these lands since their childhood. Their knowledge covers the history of the protected area, the flora and the fauna, the area’s peasant culture and traditional medicine. They are really good at spotting the different plant and animal species that could otherwise go unnoticed by visitors were they to do the hiking on their own. Using a guide is compulsory – you cannot explore the park unaccompanied.
  • Entrance to Humboldt Park is 10 CUC per person and that includes the guide service.
  • Ecotur agency runs excursions from Baracoa for a global price of 24 CUC per person, which includes transportation (round), the entrance fee, the guide service and, on the way back, a one-hour stop at Maguana beach. For that price, you can do one of the trails orTaco Bay the boat ride. The agro-ecological visit can be included if you request it in advance (one or preferably two days in advance).
  • If you’d rather get to the park on your own, a taxi for the day to Humboldt Park charges 45 CUC. If you share this expense with 3 other travelers, the cost per person comes down to 11.25 CUC. An additional advantage of going there on your own is that you can check out off-the-beaten-path Mapurisí beach on your way back from the Park.
  • Don’t forget to bring with you water to drink and a sandwich or other form of food.
  • We encourage you to offer your guide a tip, an always welcome extra bit of income for a local family. Likewise, we encourage you to buy from local women the sweets they offer to visitors (almond or peanut brittle, or the grated coconut cucuruchostypical of Baracoa). Such treats can be a good source of energy during the hike. And such little expenses help more local families benefit from a sustainable tourism.
  • We invite you to learn more about sustainable tourism in the Baracoa region.

Don’t miss the photos and videos of El Copal trail and El Recreo trail, nor the photos and videos of the boat ride in Taco Bay and the Balcón de Iberia trail in Alexander Humboldt National Park.

#Mexican cost system could be used in #Cuba Via Juventud Rebelde


Sandra Eva Lomelí, professor at the University of Guadalajara, discussed the possibility of applying in Cuba the design of a system of costs for small and medium enterprises, in the last session of the XVI Cuban congress of women economists and accountants.

Based on her experience in the furniture industry in the city of Ocotlán, located in the state of Jalisco, Mexico, Lomeli thinks it could be used in Cuba and mentioned the fact that this system is validated in 256 factories in that Mexican city.

Ocotlán is considered the furniture capital of Mexico, as it is one of the most important industries at the national level, and the application of the system is simple in any country, she explained.

Located in the center of the main maritime routes that require a transshipment port in the region, the Terminal has an advantageous location for trade with the East Coast of the United States

Located 45 kilometers from Havana, the Mariel Container Terminal (TC), the first user of the Special Development Zone, is a 100% Cuban state enterprise, managed under a long-term administration contract by PSA International, the world’s leading port operator.

Director General Charles Alistair Baker told Granma that although slightly behind in terms of planned revenues, the company hopes to be able to overcome this delay in cargo volume.

Our growth is tied to the economic evolution of the country, and we know that it has its challenges, which are even greater since the election in 2016 of a new U.S. government, which has been tougher in the application of its regulations against Cuba, he added.
