The Cuban tourism industry advances in the implementation of the Tourism + Hygienic and Safe (T + HS) program, whose objective is to preserve the health of workers and clients, Cuban Minister of Tourism Juan Carlos García Granda tweeted this Monday.

So far, 1,543 certificates have been granted, said the official, referring to the accreditation of hotels with the T + HS status after the demonstration of compliance with the sanitary protocol, based on strict epidemiological parameters to prevent the transmission of COVID- 19.

After four months of closure, Cuba reopened to foreign tourism on July 1, 2020, with measures such as physical distancing, isolation of facilities and frequent disinfection of hands and surfaces. Thousands of tourists have already enjoyed different destinations, especially in the keys and in Varadero, thanks also to the wise “bet” of airlines and tour operators, mainly from Canada.

This weekend, the advertising organization Big Seven Travel, with hundreds of thousands of followers on social networks and offices around the world, announced the list of the 50 most “instagrammable” or photograble places on the planet for 2021, with Havana in place seven, ahead of sites in popular extremes like Santorini, Singapore, London and Athens. Millions of travelers use the hashtags #Cuba and #LaHabana in their photographs, samples of the authenticity and beauty of Cuba and its people.
