Tourism continues to grow in Cuba and will continue to grow at surprising levels.

And so tourism has become the second largest generator of income in the country, behind that of professional services, reaching $2.8 billion in 2016.

 

Looking at the projections for hotel development, 108,000 new rooms will be added by 2030, with an average of 8,000 rooms added per year over the next fourteen years. Key hotel groups supplying this growth are GrupoGaviota, Gran Caribe, Cubanacan and Isla Azul groups. Additionally,the Cuba Golf group, will add hotels, real estate, golf courses and various other amenities.  And prior to its acquisition by Marriott, Starwood had agreed to operate the Four Points Miramar of the Gaviota group, which opened last June.
