Q24N (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s ambassador to Panama, Miguel Antonio Pardo, said that multidestination travel is now the main challenge for all countries in the tourist sector, an economic activity that in the case of the island grows exponentially.
In statements to the press, Pardo stated that the two countries have attractions such as the Canal Zone, volcanoes, jungle areas, beaches, museums and rich nature, capable of complementing tourism that moves to one or another side.
The main thing to develop this initiative we have it from the air and sea viewpoint, thanks to Copa Airlines -the most important tourist transport company from Panama and throughout the region- and cruise ships, a possibility that today is opened for the island, the diplomat said.
However, in case of the last modality, the U.S. government has imposed a limitation to the Cuba: cruise ships cannot carry tourists from that country on board, he stated.
With the multidestination travel option, Panama can resolve the low hotel occupancy that is currently showing, despite the large number of facilities it has with excellent conditions for accommodation.
