In a November 6 press note, Cuba’s Ministry of Tourism reported that the island has received four million visitors thus far this year; 54 days before the same figure was reached in 2016; and proof of Cuba’s growing popularity as a tourist destination.
Meanwhile, despite the impact of Hurricane Irma and campaigns to deter international visitors from traveling to the island, concerted efforts by different sector entities have ensured continued interest in Cuba.
In this sense, several key resorts including Cayo Santa María, Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, reopened this November 1, marking the beginning of the tourist high season on the island, with improvements made to facilities and all destinations fully operational, according to the press note.
