Cuba looks to attract tourists to island's eastern region

The thawing of the Cuba-US relations is giving a boost to tourism of the Caribbean island known for its crystal clear sea, white sand, vintage cars, mojito cocktail and cigars.

Now the island wants to benefit from this opportunity and fully develop its tourism by diversifying the destinations beyond the famous Varadero beach and the capital Havana.

The eastern region of the country is looking to attract more visitors with its beaches, rich culture and history as well as Cuba's most impressive mountain range.

Guardalavaca, located in the northern tip of Holguin, has increased its tourism opportunities with top-notch resorts on one of the most exclusive strips of Caribbean beach.

"We love Cuba and this part of the island is exceptional. We've been to many places in the Pacific and the Caribbean but Guardalavaca's beach is spectacular and it's our favorite place," said Jenny Dulovitch, a Canadian tourist who has visited Cuba nine times.

In the high season from November to May, Holguin's resorts are full of Canadians avoiding the freezing winter temperatures and enjoying mojitos and the white sand.

Meanwhile, even in the low season, visitors from European countries like Germany, Britain and Italy as well as Cuban nationals still visit the developing tourist area...
