The Canadian government has lifted its travel advisories for Havana and Varadero in Cuba after a swift and effective response to Hurricane Irma. Eloy Govea, Director for Canada for the Cuba Tourist Board, and a previous guest on the Travel Show, says “The retraction of the travel advisories for Havana and Varadero is really a reflection of how Cubans have banded together to get life back on track. We are pleased that the Canadian government is confident in the safety of our destinations and look forward to showcasing Canadian travellers the spirit of Cuba once again.”
This is good news indeed and Canadian travel and tour operators have resumed flights and activities in Havana, Varadero and Holguin. Only the destinations of Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria continue their recovery and they should be available for winter sun vacations again very soon.
