After Hurricane

Cuba and the Dominican Republic can be visited and discovered again without any concern.

A brief report by Javier Gonzalez

Almost two months have passed since Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria hit Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Life has gone back to normal in the meantime and travelers can experience two beautiful islands inviting them for discoveries.

During my stays in Havanna and surrounding areas, as well as in Santo Domingo and in the region of the peninsula Samaná, I was able to talk to many Cubans and Dominicans. During our conversations I learned how professionally they managed the situation.

Even though Hurricane Irma hit the island of Cuba much stronger than meteorologists were able to predict, residents managed the situation sensationally and ensured follow-up support thanks to their warning and evacuation system – one of the best systems in the world. Of course, tourists can be made to believe many things, but one thing is for sure: when strolling in Havanna’s alleys or when going on an excursion into the inland areas, it becomes obvious very quickly that life is back to normality.

The same is true for the Dominican Republic. During my journey between Santo Domingo, Los Haitises, Las Terrenas and the end of the peninsula Las Galeras I was able to observe that the devastation is cleaned up to the greatest possible extent.

Being a marketer myself, I know that pictures tell more than words. That’s why I took my iPhone, captured my impressions on video and compiled them into messages.

On this note, our Caribbean Tour teams in Havanna and Santo Domingo are looking forward to your inquiries and will gladly advise you when choosing one of the many possibilities to experience a wonderful vacation in the Caribbean.
