Cuba registers one million visitors so far this year

Just four days before the start of the 42nd edition of the Fitcuba 2024 International Tourism Fair, the country has already registered one million visitors, a figure that reflects the gradual recovery that experiences the leisure industry in the largest of the Antilles, which this year expects to reach more of three million visitors.

The announcement was made by the Minister of Tourism, Juan Carlos García Granda, in his official account of the social network X, which fills each and every one of the workers of the sector with joy. Just a week ago, the National Office of Statistics and Information of Cuba (ONEI) reported that in the first quarter of this year the total number of international arrivals to the largest of the Antilles reached 983,261, a growth of 6.1%, of which 809,238 corresponded to tourism, an increase of 7.5% compared to the same period of the year 2023.

As expected, Canada ranked first in arrivals with a total of 399,272 Canadian tourists until last March, 103.2% compared to the same period in 2023, which reaffirms once again the preference of vacationers from that North American country for this destination, especially sun and beach.

Precisely that, along with nautical tourism, will be the topic to be promoted during FitCuba 2024 which will take place from May 2 to 5 in Jardines del Rey, the second sun and beach destination in the largest of the Antilles, under the Unique Cuba campaign. Cuba is unique for its people: friendly, attentive, hospitable, happy, proud..., and unique for its tourist offer: environments and places, beaches, gastronomy, culture, nature, heritage, history and security.
