Amidst several initiatives to promote foreign investment, the country has welcomed one million visitors by the beginning of March 2018. These figures illustrate how Cuban tourism is growing steadily strong, with travellers from all over the world becoming interested in visiting the island. After being recognised as the safest tourism spot in the world, Cuba has achieved a significant sum of visitors in just over two months.
American firm Cuba Travel Services will open a base in Havana before the end of March, the first American travel firm to have a Cuban base in 60 years. Meanwhile, Carnival Cruise Line has confirmed plans to expand its Cuba sailings, with 17 new itineraries scheduled to be introduced by 2019.
Located in Cuba's central province of Villa Clara, Sagua la Grande is a picturesque town with great historical value and beautiful nature. During the International Tourism Fair (FITCuba 2018), the island's tourism authorities launched Sagua la Grande as a trip-worthy setting for visitors, after announcing the renovations and refurbishment of two of the town's most important hotels.
Ohio's acclaimed company will join Cuba's own ProDanza to perform a mixed repertoire, learn the subtleties of Cuban Ballet from their new colleagues, and deliver a brand new production to an audience at the Teatro Miramar, which has been written by Ivan Alonso, whose mother founded the renowned Ballet Nacional de Cuba.
Even though some airlines have discontinued offering flights from the US to Cuba, competition for flights to the island remains fierce among American airlines. Frontier and Spirit Airlines ended their flights to Cuba, but American Airlines and Delta Airlines are both lobbying the Department of Transportation to increase the number of flights they are allotted.
