Cuba expects 140,000 Mexicans for 2016
The Mexican Company Viajes Bojorquez signed an agreement today with Cubanacan agency for the latter to represent it in Cuba and attend Mexican tourists on the island.
The agreement, which lasts two years and it is possible to be extended for the same period, offers the possibility to the Mexican agency to settle down in Cuba in the future as tour operator.
"This is a first step, if it works well, as tomorrow Bojorquez could be established in Cuba, working there directly with its own staff," Oscar Mederos, CEO of Viajes Cubanacan Havana, told EFE after the presentation of the agreement.
At about 83,000 Mexican tourists arrive to the island every year, but at the end of 2015 the figure is expected to rise to 100,000 and to 130,000 or 140,000 in 2016.
According to the agreement signed today, the parties expect to bring in the first year some 15,000 Mexicans to the island. With the integration of Viajes Bojorquez, there are five Mexican tour operators represented on the island by Cubanacan.
