Camaguey and Playa Santa Lucia travel information

Posted January 29, 2008 by publisher in Cuba Travel.

Just a small article from but the figures regarding travel to Camaguey is interesting (of course one never knows the actual statistics since nothing is independently verifiable from the Cuban government).

The eastern Cuban province of Camaguey is improving quality during the high peak season in the Caribbean island tourist sector.

The reanimation and revitalization of the province’s tourist product has resulted in the remodeling of hotels and infrastructure.

In addition, 39 new works were underway in the province during the second semester of 2007 and will continue this year.

Nine flights a week, including eight from Canada and one from Italy, arrive at the Ignacio Agramonte International Airport every week, bringing an average of more than 5,000 foreign travelers a month.

Moreover, maintenance works guarantee the good operation of hotels in the provincial capital and Santa Lucia Beach.


So, 39 new “works”? Not sure what that means. Five thousand tourists a month divided by about 40 flights a months is about 125 people a day flying into Camaguey. Somewhat interesting. Has anyone been to this airport? Is there more to do than going to Santa Lucia?
