lets go travel to cuba

If you like tours, rides, circuits and excursions 😍 let’s go travel to #Cuba

To really get to know Cuba you need more than just staying in a hotel, you need to complete your stay with visits to local places, know the folklore and customs, live the music and dances, taste its dishes and typical drinks, explore the history, nature and cultural places, practice sports and outdoor activities and visiting its restaurants and bars outside the hotels.

For it there are tours, rides, circuits and excursions around the different tourist destinations of the island. These tours in Cuba not only vary depending on the destination, but also depend on the different tourist modalities that the archipelago offers. These excursions also respond to the preferences of the potential and real visitors. Those will be able to choose between activities and city tours, culture, nature, sun and beach, nautical and golf.

 

Let’s see how “safe” it is to travel to the United States

From the original post / ¿Cuán seguro es Estados Unidos para viajar? – Cubadebate

Last September 29 the US Department of State issued a warning to US citizens “not to travel to Cuba” with the obvious intention of creating uncertainty among potential travelers and negatively influencing their decision to visit the Island.

Let us see, then, how secure the United States of America to the travelers

The #US #Blockade cost Cuban tourism more than 1.7 billion dollars BTW April 2016 and June 2017

The Cuban authorities estimates that if U.S. tourists could travel freely to Cuba, the island would collect 1.5 billion dollars a year with those visits. In addition, it would obtain 15 million for the mooring of yachts from the United States with an average stay of a week, as well as other incomes that would amount to almost 1.702 billion dollars now declared as losses.

Obama administration relaxed some of his country’s sanctions against Cuba and approved 12 categories to make flexible the trips of U.S. citizens to the island for religious, cultural, educational, humanitarian aid reasons or personal exchange with the Cuban people, among others  + the resumption of commercial flights and cruise trips to Cuba, after half a century of being suspended.

These measures brought about a notable increase of visitors from the United States:

  • in 2016 285,000 Americans traveled to Cuba,
  • while between January and May 2017 284,565 did so, according to official data.

The boost given to tourism on the island by these visits contributed to the record of four million visitors last year and to place the estimate for 2017 at 4.7 million.

Donald Trump, opposed to his predecessor’s policies toward Cuba, on June announced he would impose new restrictions to travel to the island and would veto individual visits, although they can still travel in groups.

Damages in other economic and social sectors of the island (Read the full inform in HERE: Resolution 71/5 of the United Nations General Assembly entitled “Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba” June 2017

  • Food (347,598,000)
  • Transportation (122,300,000)
  • Energy and mines sector (122,500,000)
  • Communications and information technology (+ 68 million)
  • Industry and construction (59 and 12 million dollars, respectively)
  • Public health (87,000,000)
  • Culture (35,314,000)
  • Education (2,800,000) – where the losses were associated mainly to expenses for the import of resources that on the island are offered free of charge or subsidized
  • Bio tech and pharmaceutical industry, which cannot acquire spare parts and equipment for its research
  • Hindered its financial operations with some 100 foreign banks, most of them in Europe, which closed accounts, retained funds and refused to provide services to the island between April 2016 and March 2017
  • 36 banks refused to arrange letters of credit, 27 returned operations and 19 refused their services for fear of sanctions from the United States
  • Cuba not being able to use the dollar in its transactions

Cuba estimates at 822.28 billion dollars the damages caused by the U.S. Blockade, taking into account the depreciation of the dollar in the face of the value of gold on the international market. At current prices, the punitive measure has caused damages worth more than 130.178 billion dollars.

In 2016, at the UN the Cuban Resolution Against the Blockade had 191 votes in favor with the abstention of the United States and Israel. It was the first time that Washington did not vote against the resolution, which has been presented at the UN every year since 1992.

Cuba tourism sites R back after #HurricaneIrma

varadero

Post by @CubanWindow from the original post: Cuba expert reports Havana and most tourism sites are back after Irma

Cuba took a pounding from Hurricane Irma, with severe flooding in parts of Havana and some towns wrecked along the north central coast.

By now, however, most areas of the capital and other key cities that are frequented by foreign travelers are ready to receive visitors, according to a US-based Cuba expert who just returned from a three-day inspection tour with his team on the island.

Places open for business include Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Viñales and the cities of Camagüey and Holguín, said Collin Laverty, an expert on Cuba and US-Cuba relations and the founder and president of Cuba Educational Travel.All these cities are ‘almost untouched and fully functional,’ according to Laverty, whose company runs trips focused on art, culture, history, politics and economics. He has crafted highly specialized programs for individuals arriving by cruise, and works with lines on market assessment, entry and operations.Even Varadero, a major resort area east of the capital that was hit hard by Irma, has some hotels that were unaffected.
