Cuba holidays celebrate brand new road in Guanahacabibes Reserve
Cuban authorities recently opened a 39-mile road in the strategic peninsula of Guanahacabibes after extensive works were carried out to restore it. This all important road is situated in the country's western area and its refurbishment will certainly benefit tourism development for Cuba holidays and national security plans in the area.
To Rebel Army Major Julio Camacho Aguilera, main promoter of the work, this is the result of a process started back in 1974, with the construction of a causeway up to San Antonio Cape, the first access by to the area.
According to Granma newspaper, finishing this road will increase security in the country, making easier to access an area through which enemies of the nation had tried to smuggle weapons into the Cuban territory more than once.
It will also favour Cuba holidays to a great extent and help with tourism development in the peninsula, as this step is being followed by the construction of around 800 rooms in five beaches, the same source said.
The works to build the road opened on Sunday were delayed several times, due to the impact of hurricanes, including Ivan in 2004, which caused flooding that destroyed almost 9 miles that were already concluded.
