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

“The reality is that Americans can continue to travel to Cuba almost as they did before the new regulations,” said Tom Popper, president of Insight Cuba, which organized a forum in Havana with US companies in the tourism sector.

Executives from companies from the travel agencies, hotels, tour operators, airlines and cruise companies expressed their interest in continuing trade relations with Cuba.

“We see many opportunities in Cuba, especially on the Havana-Miami route,” said Martha Pantin, corporate communications manager of American Airlines, a company that already operates nine daily flights to five Cuban destinations. “We have requested permission for 17 additional frequencies,” 

“The message is that Cuba is open to business, safe, wonderful and legal for travelers from the United States,” said Terry Dale, president of the Association of Tour Operators of the United States.

Within the new policy of US President Donald Trump, to the island, banned US companies from making direct monetary transactions with a number of companies in the tourism sector, on the charge that they are controlled by the Cuban Army.

It also hardened the conditions for travel to the island by US citizens, who although were already banned from tourism, and only can travel as part of a cultural, academic or religious trip, among others.

But despite the obstacles in the procedures, Trump’s measures did not vary the 12 categories of trips approved by the previous US administration to facilitate visits to the island, which have now been restricted to trips organized in groups.

“The new measures have created a lot of confusion about the reality of travel to Cuba. But the truth is that Cuba remains a legal and safe destination for American travelers even before the new regulations of the Treasury Department, “said lawyer Lindsay Frank.

During 2017, 620,000 Americans traveled to Cuba and none had health problems during their stay on the island. An argument that would contradict the travel warning issued by the State Department last September and that in early January had to lift and pass it to “reconsider” the trip.

“It is very important for American travelers to understand that the travel warning from the State Department does not legally prevent Americans from traveling to Cuba,” explained lawyer Lindsay Frank.
