At the end of this month again the Cuban tourist authorities will organize a peculiar meeting of tours of nature named Turnat, which in its eleventh edition will be based in eastern Cuba.
This year, the Ministry of Tourism (Mintur) aims to consolidate a very attractive meeting: the International Nature Tourism Event (Turnat 2017) in the northern region of the easternmost part of the archipelago.
And this is happening, precisely at times of boom in the travel industry on this island with the hope of closing this year with 4.7 million foreign visitors, many interested in the modality of sun and beach, but a lot in search of circuits and nature.
The tourism of nature and adventure, together with the rural or agricultural environment, constitute modalities of reinforcement for the recreational industry not only in Cuba, but in the majority of the countries.
It is precisely the XI Turnat (Holguín-Baracoa, 26-30 September 2017) that is an opportune moment for the exchange between professionals engaged in this type of travel, and the opportunity to conduct and examine paths and spread the benefits of this archipelago.
The leadership (main organizer) of the Ecotur Travel Agency in the process of nature tourism, place Cuba as a well-targeted country in this regard.
Mintur authorities opportunely reported that on the island there is a National System of Protected Areas (SNAP) that guarantees, from the legal and constitutional framework, those tasks.
Such zones are classified as National, Local and Special Regions of Sustainable Development.
A continuity plan is foreseen from 2014 to 2020, which addresses 77 Protected Areas of National Significance and 134 Local Significance for a total of 211 Identified Protected Areas.
In addition, the categories of management (professional technical assistance) appear from a structure that has a Natural Reserve (only for scientific work), National Park, Ecological Reserve, Natural Element highlighted, and Managed Flower Reserve.
In Cuba there are 120 protected areas managed with effective management, 58.87 percent of the total identified, and 86.73 percent with probable management. In total, much of this structure is open to tourism.
Hence Turnat occurs every two years in a different place, and has traveled from west to east. The first such meeting, Turnat 2000, took place in Viñales, in the province of Pinar del Rio, Cuba's westernmost.
The second meeting was in the central-southern province of Cienfuegos in 2002, as planned for 2001 was canceled due to cyclone threat.
In 2003 the event passed to the eastern province of Granma and a year later to the central Sancti Spiritus,
