Aruba and Cuba have signed a cooperative agreement focusing on tourism for the two destinations, including the possibility of a cruise ship route that links the two countries and others in the southern Caribbean.

The agreement was signed in Havana last week by Rodrigo Malmierca, Cuba’s minister of foreign trade and foreign investment, and Otmar Uduber, Aruba’s minister of tourism, transportation and culture.

“Aruba sees Cuba as a new destination, despite its existence for some time now, and it will soon see organizational changes that will contribute to making the country a more attractive destination to explore from the U.S. market,” Uduber said.

The agreement will open up new tourism possibilities for Aruba, according to Uduber. The focus includes a dual destination program and the exchange of information on managing cruise facilities, marketing strategies to attract visitors and the timeshare sector.

The agreement comes on the heels of a similar venture between Jamaica and Cuba.
