Díaz-Canel addresses the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit – Via Granma Cuba

f0023185.jpg

Addressing the UN as part of the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit in New York this Monday, September 24, President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez began by noting Cuba’s pride on having supported the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, and recalled the iconic embrace between the Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro and the anti-apartheid leader, Nelson Mandela, who visited Cuba in 1991, shortly after his release from prison.

Let us remember the political prisoner, the defender of human rights and the rights of his people, and the politician who changed history, Díaz-Canel stated in reference to Mandela. On remembering Mandela, we recognize the struggle of the South African people, led by the African National Congress, against the contemptible apartheid regime, he added.

Trinidad boasts four of the six principal tourist destinations in the province of Sancti Spíritus, in the center of the island. It is not only one of the best preserved colonial cities in the Caribbean, but also offers the beach at Ancón, one of the most popular on the southern coast of Cuba, as well as natural sites like Topes de Collantes and the Valle de los Ingenios, declared a World Heritage Site in 1988 by the United Nations Organization for Education, Science, and Culture (UNESCO), along with the city.

Its privileged location has made the area the perfect destination for circuit tourism, a modality in which Cuba is expanding, thanks to the variety of heritage cities throughout the country that can be visited.

Since its founding in 1514 as the Villa de la Santísima Trinidad, the region was an important center of the island’s sugar industry. Its plantations, mills, towers, boilers, mansions, and other constructions related to the sugar cane economy dotted the area, to become cultural and historical attractions today.

Cuba gears up for high tourist season – Via Xinhuanet

travel-to-cuba.jpg

Cuba’s tourism industry is preparing for the year-end high season, hoping to see an increase in foreign visitors despite deteriorating ties with the United States.

Considered the most dynamic sector of the national economy, tourism has suffered from travel restrictions reimposed by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Regulations that once again make it difficult for Americans to travel to Cuba — following a brief period of detente under Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama — have led U.S. airlines to scale back flights to Havana and other Cuban cities.

VISITING CUBA WITH KIDS – WHY IT MAKES SENSE / Via locally sourced cuba

Deciding upon a holiday destination that is of equal appeal to both the adults and the kids in your family can be a tricky balancing act. If it’s too much in the children’s favour, you might find yourself spending your precious vacation days at a theme park, your eyes practically glazing over as yet another costumed character capers in front of your kids (and the actor inside probably once had dreams of being on Broadway). Sure, you will take some pleasure in your children’s joy, but the cynic in you will treat it all as an advertisement for all the merchandise on sale in the countless souvenir stores.

Las Tunas, Cuba: a favorite destination for nature, sun and beach tourism – Via Cuba Travel

Sin título

In Las Tunas, Cuba, life goes by at a slower pace and is best enjoyed. It’s a favorite destination for nature, sun and beach tourism, bathing its coasts with the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Guacanayabo. The so called Balcony of the Cuban Western has a nice weather all year long, with temperatures that range from 69.8 to 86 °F, so outdoor activities are among the top tourist attractions in Las Tunas.

Las Tunas is a fertile, sweet land as it bases its economy on the sugar production, consumed nationally and exported to the world. Likewise, agriculture is an important part of the life of Las Tunas, associating it with the tourist activity to turn it into a destination for rural tourism.
