Havanatur SA is group of tour operators and travel agencies with offices in more than twelve countries around the world. In Canada, the country that sends the most visitors to Cuba, Havanatur has two branches: Hola Sun Holidays. based in Toronto, Ontario and Caribe Sol located in Montreal, Quebec. Since our foundation, Hola Sun and Caribe Sol’s main strategy has been to promote Cuba as a place of endless exploration offering all the key elements travelers are looking for: vibrant culture, in-depth history, breathtaking landscape, stunning beaches, colonial architecture and most of all, charming people! It is also an incredibly safe destination, accessible and very affordable for Canadian tourists.
Hola Sun Holidays. has a 25 year presence in the market. It was the first agency Havanatur opened in Canada. Hola Sun’s tour products are mainly geared towards travel agencies in the province of Ontario, but it also offers departures from other gateways in Canada. Meanwhile Caribe Sol, with 23 years in the market, caters its products to the francophone market in the province of Quebec. Throughout the years both agencies have been very well positioned in the Canadian market and enjoy prestige in the retail network, having partnered with more than 1600 travel agencies nationwide. Our main strengths lie in being recognized as the Cuba specialist and offering our customers a wide selection of travel products and services across Cuba. Hola Sun and Caribe Sol’s approach has been to continue to expand sales outside Toronto and Montreal.
Each year Hola Sun and Caribe Sol continue to enrich our diverse collection of products and services, offering more destinations and hotels with year round service than any other Canadian tour operator.
