The Cuba Tourist Board has announced that Cuba has officially welcomed over a million Canadian visitors over the course of the 2019 travel season. 

Following in the footsteps of a very strong 2018, the confirmation of the accomplishment came on 4DEC, the exact day that the 1,000,000 Canadian arrivals achievement was met last year.

“Coming off of the highly anticipated Havana 500 celebrations, there is a heightened excitement and energy in the air,” said Lessner Gomez, Director of the Cuba Tourist Board.  

“We are both excited and humbled to have had the opportunity to accommodate so many guests in 2019 and look forward to sharing the unique spirit of Cuba with more of our Canadian friends in 2020.”
