The development of tourist poles is progressing in the Cuban province
Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, May 13 (Prensa Latina) The tourist resorts of Trinidad and the Valley of the Ingenios, both Cultural Heritage of Humanity, are progressing in their development in this central province of Cuba, Reiner Rendón, delegate of the sector, assured today.
He explained to Prensa Latina that there is a strong international demand for the conservation of its buildings, museums and cultural traditions, as well as the historical values of the treasures of the valley, one of the largest sugar cane producers in the colonial period.
After the paralysis of tourist activity due to the pandemic, two years in which investments and maintenance of facilities have been worked, a renaissance is appreciated by both nationals and foreigners.
Rendón pointed out that the presence of foreign visitors in the third city founded by Spain in 1514 is gradually increasing, an average of around 900 tourist days is reported, a figure that should exceed one thousand from the next stage of growth. .
Currently, he said, work is continuing on the completion of the Meliá Trinidad Peninsula hotel with some 400 rooms of various types, the largest and most modern establishment of this type in Sancti Spíritus, under administration of the Spanish chain Meliá Hotels International.
This large complex is located in the María Aguilar beach area, on the Ancón Peninsula, where the Trinidad del Mar, Ancón and Costasur hotels are located, with 650 beds.
For specialists, Trinidad is a cultural destination par excellence because of its richness in traditions, music and theater with strong African roots, a legacy of the slaves brought by the Spaniards in the 18th and 19th centuries to cultivate cane.
Meanwhile, the Topes de Collantes pole arouses the interest of visitors due to its wealth of paths, springs and streams with beautiful waterfalls, intramountain valleys and unique flora and fauna in the center of the country.
