Trivago online company removes Cuban hotels from its search systemHAVANA, Nov 13 (ACN) Once again, the US economic, commercial and financial blockade is tightening its actions against the development of Cuban Tourism, one of the main economic activities in Cuba.

Today, Trivago, a U.S.-based German transnational technology company that specializes in Internet-related services and products in the hotel and lodging fields, removed Cuba from its explorers because of the White House government's restrictive measures.
This results in Cuban hotel facilities "disappearing" from one of the main search platforms, which offers travelers enough information to choose any destination in the world.
Because of the extraterritoriality of the blockade, endorsed by the enforcement of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, companies from third countries have been forced to break off commercial and exchange relations with Cuba, as they own a large part of its capital or an important number of its shares, tied to the U.S. dollar.
Manuel Marrero Cruz, Cuban Minister of Tourism, recently reported that in the tourism sector the damage amounts to some 38.722 million dollars, with U.S. tourism being the most affected by the restrictions of its own government.
However, the U.S. website TripAdvisor, which provides reviews of travel-related content, including travelers' personal experiences, places several Cuban hotels on its list of the most recommended worldwide, including the Royalton Key Santa Maria, the Iberostar Gran Hotel Trinidad and the Melia Cayo Coco, among others.
