Cuba Back On Track

Havana, Varadero Travel Advisories Lifted

The Cuba Tourist Board of Canada reports that travel advisories for Havana and Varadero have been lifted by the Canadian government following Cuba’s swift and effective response to Hurricane Irma.

Eloy Govea, director for Canada for the Cuba Tourist Board, said: “The retraction of the travel advisories for Havana and Varadero is really a reflection of how Cubans have banded together to get life back on track.”

Govea continued: “We are pleased that the Canadian government is confident in the safety of our destinations and look forward to showcasing Canadian travellers the spirit of Cuba once again.”

Canadian travel and tour operators have resumed flights and activities in Havana, Varadero and the eastern city of Holguin.

With hotels and resorts in these cities now up and running, only the destinations of Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria remain under regional advisory.

There is currently no nationwide advisory in effect for Cuba.

Hurricane Maria had little effect in Cuba. Maria did not make true landfall on Cuba, with only the easternmost regions of the country experiencing elevated winds and rougher waters.

Stabilization efforts remain on schedule in regions previously impacted by Irma.

And Govea noted that: “The continued flow of Canadian guests to Cuba is instrumental not only to economic recovery, but to the spirit of the Cubans that want to confirm that Canadian love for the island has not changed after Irma.”
