A press release from the Spanish hotel chain Meliá informed today that international agencies recognized the Varadero beach area in Cuba as the best in Latin America.
The selection was coordinated by the Panama-based International Training Center for Beach Management and Certification (Cifplayas) and the Federal University of Rio Grande (Brazil).
The ranking was prepared by 28 experts from several countries. To do so, managers and academics considered a conceptual-methodological framework where each beach was analyzed according to four dimensions: protection, conservation, recreation and health.
According to these parameters – broken down into carefully evaluated indicators – the beach next to Meliá Internacional Varadero obtained a score of 98 out of 100.
The area is described as spectacular and extensive, with white sands and transparent blue waters, emblematic for its tourist use and its high level of management, integrated in the Cifplayas study, which is available on the web at https://www.cifplayas.org.
