A million Canadian visitors have arrived in Cuba so far this year, a figure that confirms the primacy of that market for the national leisure industry, maintained for decades as the number one issuer to the Greater Antilles.
According to the note published on the Travelweek Group website of Canada, the Island registered the brand on December 4th, coincidentally the same date on which in 2018 identical arrival digits were achieved.
Lessner Gómez, director of the Office of Tourism of Cuba in the northern nation, said he was excited about the accommodation of so many Canadian friends in this 2019, and he was sure that the million now received could grow in 2020.
Gomez and other Cuban tourism officials confirmed that Cuba is ready and its hotels open for Canadian vacationers to increase their stay in the winter 2019-2020.
Of the million visitors that have arrived in this country, it is not a secret that a good part is staying at the beach resort of Varadero, where they arrive in search of the maximum attractions offered by the second best beach in the world, according to the opinions of the Travellers.
Of the 42 percent of repeat tourists in the Caribbean destination, a high percentage corresponds to travelers precisely from the Canadian market, which in this season of tourist increase has put seven percent more air capacity than the previous one, which will increase Arrival flow, according to statements by the head of the Ministry of Tourism, Manuel Marrero Cruz.
Despite the resurgence of the blockade of the United States government to reduce tourism emissions, the Greater Antilles expects to conclude the current year with the figure of four million 300 thousand visitors.
