Melia Hotels highlights Cuba as a safe tourist destination.
The spanish chain Meliá Hotels highlighted Cuba as a safe destination during the post-Covid-19 recovery stage, thanks to the successes of the local authorities in controlling the epidemiological situation.

Latina the representative of the company on the island, Francisco Camps.

The manager said that in terms of tourism, clear formulas were established for the different phases of recovery in the largest of the Antilles, with which it is intended to avoid any type of outbreak of the new coronavirus.

Camps pointed out that the opening of the hotels will occur as demand in the sector increases, although the chain is already ready to operate its facilities in Cayo Coco and Cay Santa María, where international flight operations could enter.

In this sense, he stressed that Cuba presents a favorable and controlled epidemiological situation with respect to other countries.

To the extent that Cuba can demonstrate to the world that it has a very well-managed situation, not only of the pandemic, but also of no outbreaks, hotel operations can be guaranteed in a state of safety for guests.

Camps also affirmed that in this stage of progressive lack of confidence, the chain already operates two hotels for the national market in the tourist pole of Varadero and one in the province of Holguín.
