MONTREAL, QUEBEC, Apr 05, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Today, a new site that provides travelers and armchair travelers a unique look at Cuba goes live at www.visitcuba.com . Visit Cuba blankets the Cuba you know and the Cuba you haven't discovered yet - from Pinar del Rio to Havana to Santiago de Cuba and everywhere in between. Top journalists fill the site with fascinating insights into music, movies, culture, cuisine and especially into the 11.5 million Cubans and some of their personal stories.
The visitcuba.com site is one of the web's best designs for easy navigation and a modern, uncluttered appearance.
It's the very best way to visit the island nation without hopping onto a plane. In addition to extensive feature articles, the site provides detailed practical travel information, an up-to-date calendar of events and a special "What's On" section for the Caribbean's largest and most exciting city, Havana. There's also an extensive Q&A section, loads of specially shot videos and a bookshelf where you can get the best travel, art and history books to help plan your Cuban trip.
There is also an instant booking engine, allowing access for unique Cuban holidays - everything from all-inclusive beach resorts at superb value pricing to exclusive retreats that can only be found at visitcuba.com. This is a booking mechanism that is all about Cuba and Cuba only so it offers the most clear choices and options anywhere online.
The site itself, created by Troupe Design of Toronto, Canada and programmed by Design Shopp of Montreal, Canada will eventually be tri-lingual in English, French and Spanish. The site is the project of 360 VOX Corporation, a Canadian company with several projects under development in Cuba.
Guy Chartier of 360 VOX, who worked in Cuba for a decade, explains that the new site is a way to share his company's love and respect for Cuba. "More than any Caribbean island, Cuba has culture, architecture, music, arts and dance that make it a true world leader. On top of that, it has the world's finest beaches. We want to share what we've found with everyone."
Visitcuba.com will continue to add features, great photography and compelling videos on a regular basis. The site will answer visitors' questions and provide immediate, down-to-earth information on this vibrant island nation. Travel lovers and everyone else will want to check visitcuba.com frequently to share the excitement of an authentic visit to Cuba.
