Cuba says more than 2.4 million tourists will come to the island by the end of the year, up 3.3 percent from 2008's record, though deep discounts and shorter stays mean vacation industry revenues are down overall.

The country will break the previous year's mark of 2.34 million visitors by nearly 80,000, fuelled by 2,000 new hotel rooms in top tourist areas, including Havana and Varadero, a white-sand beach north of the capital, Tourism Minister Manuel Marrero
Cruz said on Thursday editions of the Communist Party newspaper Granma.
