The project is aimed at enhancing knowledge of the island's natural attractions and includes tours of historic and cultural sites. Excursions to more than 322 sites of interest will be available at 29 camping sites throughout the country.

This way, campers all over the island will be able to visit far off locations. "Some 27 thousand people will benefit from this program in 2008," said company director Eduardo Tirado to Juventud Rebelde newspaper.

"It is still insufficient to meet expectations, but no question it will be a step forward in getting the Cuban people more acquainted with their country's natural beauty and overwhelming history," said Tirado.
