Havana, Nov 7 (Prensa Latina) All stores specializing in the sale of Cuban cigars and rums will be ready in the next few days to receive tourists, Manuel Guerrero, Deputy Chair of the CUBASOL business group said on Saturday.

In dialogue with Prensa Latina, Guerrero recognized the work effort of specialists from the CARACOL S.A. commercial company, which supported by its own workers, ensured the protection, repair and modernization of buildings since tourism was closed in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

CUBASOL’s leader gave as an example the recently opened house of cigars and rums ‘El Floridita,’ which after sales of over 1,000,000,000 cuc in 2019, was preserved and groomed with great beauty because of the sense of belonging of its workers.

Meanwhile, the director of the Specialized Branch of CARACOL S.A., Luis Felipe Canitrot, recalled that several days ago the ‘El Galeon’ and ‘La Triada’ stores were opened with new images, the latter famous worldwide for the six mega-cigars registered by his twister Jose Castelar Cairo, alias Cueto in the Guinness World Records.

The administrator of the complex of specialized stores CARACOL, Imilce Arce, announced exclusively that during the second week of November the store ‘El Faro’ will be reopened, located at the base of the lantern that marks the entrance to the bay of Havana, in the walls of the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro (1845).
