The tourism sector in the Cuban province of Sancti Spíritus executes an investment program that will guarantee better accommodation and service conditions and the rescue of almost all of the 300 out-of-order rooms, said Alberto Ramos, deputy delegate of the Ministry of Tourism (MINTUR) in the territory.
With the materialization of these tasks, it is intended to enhance the quality of the service for national and foreign tourists; vital in the revitalization of the sector, severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ramos noted that more than a hundred of those rooms belong to the Ancón hotel, where 16 cold rooms are also repaired, in addition to the ceiling, damaged by tropical storm Laura when passing over the coast of Trinidad late August.
He also explained that in the old city more than twenty rooms are reincorporated at the client's disposal in the Ma Dolores village and others of the Las Cuevas hotel; and added that the Buenavista farm house, at the Valle de los Ingenios, is practically ready to receive visitors, after a total restoration.
The infrastructure of the Marina and its boats is also being improved and work will soon be carried out that will make traffic safer on the road that connects the province of Cienfuegos with Trinidad, the latter coveted place for sun, beach, nature, cultural, city and historical tourism.
The MINTUR deputy delegate stated that the rescue of rooms to improve accommodation capacities also extends to the San José del Lago village, in Mayajigua; and Rancho Hatuey, Los Laureles and the El Rijo hotel, in the provincial capital. (Oscar Alfonso Sosa, ACN)
