June 16 Havana Cuba (Prensa Latina) Cuban tourism authorities offered
to promote travel for third-aged people to Cuba, which experts considered very praiseworthy.
Sources of the Cubanacan tourist group, one of the largest in the
country, said their offer was based on creative sport activities to meet the needs of people of that age.
According to the Caribbean News Digital bulletin, the proposal includes
visits to sites of historic and cultural interest.
Travel packages may last up to two weeks in attractive cities such
as Havana and central Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara and Matanzas, chiefly Varadero, the most important local tourist resort.
Nearly two million tourists travel to Cuba per year, attracted by
local nature, water sports and cultural-historic recreation.
Cubanacan, which possesses hotel and other related services across
the Caribbean island, was founded in August 5, 1987 to foster and commercialize tourism to Cuba.
It also operates through joint ventures with Spanish Melia, Tryp,
NH Hotels and Iberostar firms, among others.
