Tour-operators come to Cuba despite Helms-BurtonHAVANA, Cuba, May 9 (ACN) Although the new provisions of the Donald Trump administration are aimed at hitting the development of tourism in Cuba, tour operators have flocked to Cuba like never before, said Adamis Pérez Rodríguez, director of Promotion and Public Relations at the Gran Caribe Hotel Group.

In the context of the International Tourism Fair of Cuba, FITCuba 2019, Perez Rodriguez commented to the Cuban News Agency that the tour operators, far from making changes or being afraid with the activation of the new titles of the Helms-Burton law, have attended the Fair, and have about 30 and 40 daily signatures of contracts.

They have responded to Cuba like never before; it has been spectacular; we have had a superior response with respect to other fairs; it has been incredible, so we don't feel the activation of the Helms-Burton titles at all," she said.

The so-called Slavery Law has no place within Cuba's jurisdiction, and therefore we will continue to strengthen our work and move forward, she added.

She commented that the Hotel Group has offered the tour operators all the possibilities so that they have the facilities to bring their clients, and that he attended the Fair with the objective of making new contracts and showing the potentialities of the destination Cuba.

As a hotel chain, together with tour operators, we are always going to bet on Cuba, on good service, and we will do everything we can so that clients leave the largest of the Antilles with the satisfaction of having been here, he said.

Adamis Perez Rodriguez, recalled that the Gran Caribe is a hotel chain that is about to turn 25, on August 1 of this year, and has emblematic facilities declared heritage of the nation, such as the Hotel Nacional, Inglaterra and Havana Riviera, which are located in the best points of the city.

She stressed that the Group is busy restoring and improving the comfort of the facilities, but that this has cost a lot of work due to the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for almost six decades.
The chain was born with six thousand rooms and already has more than 12 thousand; it is quite visited, and, as evidence we have clients who have frequented our facilities in more than 50 opportunities, he affirmed.
