Attractions & Excursions


Cuba has taken the new sanitary measures to face Covid-19 very seriously, according to Patricia Maheux, one of the first Canadian tourists who arrived on the island on September 4 to enjoy her vacations, along with her husband.

An information, published by the Canadian site PAX Nouvelles, specialized in tourism, indicates Maheux"s opinion during her stay in Cayo Coco, where she was received with great affection by the Cubans, with flags of both countries, behind whose masks she guessed the smiles.

Upon arrival at the airport, she explained, the carry-on luggage was disinfected and all passengers had to undergo COVID-19 tests. It cannot be said that it is pleasant, but it turned out well, fortunately, none of them tested positive.

Patricia Maheux and her husband stayed at the Memories Flamenco Beach Resort, belonging to the Gaviota group, where there were only about 75 clients, according to the measures required by the current epidemiological situation.

For them, the stay at the hotel was very good, not only because of the peacefulness they enjoyed during the week they stayed there, but also because of the good care and security they enjoyed, since all the facility staff always wore masks and gloves at all times, despite the heat.

As for the gastronomic service, they only saw advantages because "it was always an à la carte service and we could present ourselves at our convenience without reservation".

Patricia is a regular client in Cuba, because in the last 25 years she has visited it countless times and finally pointed out that "when you decide to take a trip at times like this, you have to accept that everything may not turn out exactly as usual or as you planned it. You have to be open to this possibility and take the risk. But in our case, there was nothing to regret."
