    Significant achievements

    “These are not minor achievements, they are very significant achievements for the country,” said Gustavo J. Segura, Rector Minister of Tourism. “We are very proud to see reflected in these numbers the intense work to raise our tourism industry with the attraction of airlines, the destination promotion strategies with a limited budget, the health protocols and the excellent quality of service provided by our sector private,” Segura added.

    The Minister mentioned that just as the restart of cruise tourism for the 2021-2022 season was announced, there are changes on the way that will not only strengthen the achievements of the first semester, but it is sure they will boost the arrival of tourists in the second half of the year.
