Havanatur S.A. is group of tour operators and travel agencies with offices in more than 12 countries around the world. It has two offices in Canada – which is the country that sends the most visitors to Cuba: Hola Sun Holidays Ltd, based in Toronto, Ontario and Caribe Sol located in Montreal, Quebec. Since our foundation, Hola Sun and Caribe Sol’s main strategy has been to promote Cuba as a place of endless exploration offering all the key elements travellers are looking for: vibrant culture, in-depth history, breathtaking landscape, stunning beaches, colonial architecture and most of all, its charming people! It is also an incredibly safe destination, accessible and very affordable for Canadian tourists.
Hola Sun Holidays Ltd has a 26 year presence in the market; it was the first agency that Havanatur opened in Canada. Hola Sun aims its tour products mainly at travel agencies in the province of Ontario, but it also offers its services across Canada. Meanwhile, Caribe Sol, with 24 years in the market, caters its products to the francophone market in the province of Quebec. Throughout the years both agencies have been very well positioned in the Canadian market and we enjoy prestige in the retail network as we have partnered with more than 1600 travel agencies nationwide. Our main strengths lie in being recognized as the Cuba specialist and offering our customers a wide selection of travel products and services across Cuba. Hola Sun and Caribe Sol’s approach has been to continue to expand sales outside of the Toronto and Montreal areas.
Each year Hola Sun Holidays and Caribe Sol continue to enrich our collection of diverse products and services, offering more destinations and hotels with year round service than any other Canadian tour operator. Hola Sun and Caribe Sol offer vacation packages with year round services to nine destinations: Cayo Coco / Cayo Guillermo, Holguín, Cienfuegos / Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba, Camagüey / Santa Lucía, Havana, Varadero, Cayo Santa María and Cayo Largo.
