Published on : Wednesday, June 3, 2015

CubaDuring a meeting with officials from the Ministry of Tourism (MINTUR), tourism executives in Guantanamo presented more than a dozen proposals to be included in Cuba’s tourist development program.

Cultural and natural options aimed at turning the province into one of Cuba’s main tourist resorts were analyzed and enriched during the debate.


Luis Miguel Rubino, head of tourist product at MINTUR, stated that Guantanamo’s rich intangible heritage is the most authentic product that the province can offer to visitors. She recalled that the province holds the largest number of World Heritage Sites in Cuba.
The Stone Zoo, located in this mountainous eastern region, is currently one of the most popular tourist options in Cuba, MINTUR Delegate Onelkis Ferrer said.
The products presented at the meeting have an adequate management plan what will allow developing viable and sustainable tourism to contribute to the development of the province, Ferrer noted.


Rubino stressed the country’s need to explore all possible options, taking into account the possibilities opened to this sector after the US negotiations with Cuba.


Guantanamo was a city marked by constant migrations, which was strengthened in the early 19th century due to the activity of French, Spanish and Afro-Caribbean citizens, and countless immigrants whose influence has remained over time.
