Cuban Tourism Day was celebrated for the first time on November 20th this year.

Cuban Minister of Tourism Manuel Marrero Cruz, said in Havana that despite the upsurge of the US blockade against the island, particularly the measures aimed at undermining the tourist sector, a good high season is predicted with nearly a 1,6% increase in foreign visitor arrivals by the end of the year.

Speaking to reporters on the occasion of Cuban Tourism Day, which is celebrated for the first time this year, Marrero Cruz said that these results reflect the hard work carried out by his office with the support of others such as the Ministry of Transportat, hotel chains and the media, when seeking alternatives and promoting the advantages of the country.

This has been a rather complicated year because the US government has been committed to intensifying the blockade and especially the measures aimed at affecting tourism, thus cruise travels were abruptly suspended on June 5th and more recently, regular flights to Cuba, except to Havana, said the minister.
