Havana, December 11 (RHC)-- The increasing number of British tourists arriving in Cuba shows the growing interest in that European nation for the attractive features that keynote the largest of the Caribbean Islands and turn it into a singular and safe vacationing spot in the area.
Following last week’s visit to Havana by the British cruise ship Thomson Dream, with more than one thousand tourists aboard, a huge Boeing 787 landed today at the Holguin Airport, in eastern Cuba, on a non-stop flight from London with at least three hundred other Thomson vacationers.
More than one hundred and twenty seven thousand Britons travelled to Cuba on vacation from January up to October this year, and they should number 150,000 by the end of 2013.
The United Kingdom is currently the second largest source of tourists to Cuba behind Canada, which continues to head this coveted spot.
