Havana.- Varadero, Cuba's major coastal resort, will have its beach areas under constant evaluation in 2018, with a view to knowing the conditions of the dune at different stages of the year.
Experts from the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment (CITMA) pointed out that the efficiency of sand dumping, the response to hurricanes and cold fronts should be verified.
The work is aimed at recovering the dune in Varadero, with emphasis on the elimination of invasive exotic plants in The Tainos-Punta Hicacos sector.
In addition, progress is being made in the reforestation of areas affected by Hurricane Irma, where sea grapes, hicacos and other native flora species have been planted.
This year's plan also includes the reconstruction of the dune in the Hotel Internacional-Cuatro Palmas sector.
