Lorenzo Peña, delegate of the Tourism Ministry in Holguin, said that the recovery in the extra-hotel facilities already exceeds 90 percent, while only four department stores are still working to re-establish the service.
Several hotels are actually operating in the territory along with other services, such as the Marlin Marine and the car and motorbike rentals.
Most damage at the tourist facilities occurred to roofs, carpets and windows, while the buildings infrastructure was not affected.
At the time specialized brigades of the sector from Santiago de Cuba, Guantanamo, Granma and Havana are supporting the activity in the territory.
“Representatives of major tour operators from England, Germany and Canada, have visited our tourist facilities to asses the recovery process”, Bernardo Alonso, representative of the Brisas-Guardalavaca Hotel told AIN.
"The confidence in us is real and from this Friday, flights from Canada will land here, even though we are in the so-called low season," he said.
While tourists enjoy the benefits of these facilities, which also include the “Pesquero” and “Esmeralda” beaches, among other attractions, everything is returning gradually to normality, always with the presence of those who spend long hours working in the so-called no-smoke industry.
