Havana.- The Zapata Swamp, in the western Cuban province of Matanzas, will host the 7th International Meeting on Nature Tourism.
The meeting, scheduled for September 2009, will be aimed at promoting the wealth of the largest swamp in Cuba and the Caribbean region.
The Zapata Swamp, which was declared a Biosphere Reserve, was chosen to host the meeting due to its high natural values and its major role in the development of nature tourism in Cuba.
For the seventh time, Cuba will welcome tourism professionals who sell ecological options and excursions to natural sites, who will exchange their experiences in that field.
The meeting will consist of lectures, meetings of experts and tours of sites of natural and ecological interest, where participants will get first-hand information about Cuba's tourism potential.
