Seven new hotels will be built in Havana to celebrate the Cuban capital’s 500th anniversary in 2019.
Jose Reinaldo Daniel Alonso, head of development at the Tourism Ministry, said at a recent presentation of new tourism projects that the first hotel will be completed later this year. One will be built next to the Museum of the Revolution, and a 42-storied one will be the tallest in Havana.
The official said foreign investment has been injected into some of the projects and the authorities are seeking further investments for other development projects.
