Latin America: A different sort of cruise destination

Mexiko-Stand, ITB Berlin 2017

Latin America is becoming an increasingly popular cruise destination, but never a high volume destination for this market. Those who have taken a ship to the Galapagos or the Amazon, who have undertaken an expedition to Chile or Argentina, traversed the Panama Canal or tied up in Havana and Cartagena are primarily interested in the destination. Encounters with the locals, history, nature in its purest form, and real life are all important, but there is no call for a fancy programme of on-board activities.

Argentina and ITB Berlin have entered into a strategic partnership for the worldwide promotion of sexual diversity in travel.  At the signing of the relevant contracts at Argentina's LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) Stand at ITB Berlin 2016, Argentina's Minister of Tourism Gustavo Santos spoke of a "sign of freedom, love and diversity" that Argentina wanted to put forward with the contract.  Rika Jean-Francois, Messe Berlin GmbH's representative for environmental and social responsibility (CSR), said that the agreement sends a "strong message for the world."
