It is clear that the image of Cuba collaborates to the tourism of the sun and beaches because it has spas of big beauty and they are very well preserved, I have verified it at Pillar in key Guillermo, which I consider to be the best of the Caribbean.
He said as other components of relevancy the Cuban culture, the history and the folklore, which can be promoted accordingly.
The diversity of the flora and the fauna and the incomparable marine funds, with an extensive coral reef, are important elements for bearing in mind.
Also to introduce nautical trips between the different islets of the north keys.
