Cuba Vacations Reach Record-High

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 10, 2013) - Canada's favourite travel company, itravel2000, has reported a huge increase in Canadian bookings for vacation packages to Cuba. As a popular long-time favourite among Canadians, this is no surprise, but the volume and growth from not only years past, but against other hot travel sun destinations like Mexico, these numbers are unprecedented.

Based on bookings for 2012, itravel2000 helped thousands of Canadians escape to Cuba, ranked as the new number one travel destination, dropping Mexico into second place. Canadians are going beyond the popular Cuba destinations like Varadero and Havana, and exploring new emerging cities like Holguin, Cayo Coco, Santa Maria, Santiago, and Camaguey.
