new-cuban-tourist-destinationCuba is witnessing a record break arrival of Brazilian tourists to the country with a 31%-126% growth, according to diplomatic sources.

 

Economic Councelor of the Cuban Embassy, Dagmar Gonzalez recalled that the presence of Brazilian visitors in Cuba’s main tourist resorts was increasingly noted, rising from little more than 16,000 in 2012 to 22,862 in 2016. It meant that the Caribbean is nowadays placed as the third destination most demanded by Brazilian travelers.

 

In last January, the number of Brazilian visitors reached more than 4,300. This figure accounts for over double those ones who traveled in the same month in 2016, as stated by Dagmar Gonzalez Grau during a meeting with tour operators, travel agents and airline representatives.

 

The comparative increase registered in last February, as 3,319 tourists were recorded, was 52 percent, while in the first two weeks of March 1,318 Brazilians had traveled to Cuba. It accounted for a 31% growth relating to the same period in 2016.

 

In her presentation, she referred to the upcoming opening of the first five-star plus hotel in Havana, the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski, boasting 246 rooms and luxury suites, as well as the beginning of the US Norwegian cruise company’s operations.

 

Likewise, she called to participate the Cuba’s International Tourism Fair, FITCuba-2017, which will be held from from May 3 to 6 in Holguin province, having Germany as a Honor Guest.
