International agencies cataloged the beach segment near the Meliá Internacional Varadero Hotel as the best in Latin America, the Spanish chain announced.
The selection was coordinated by the International Center for Training in Beach Management and Certification (Cifplayas), based in Panama, and the Federal University of Rio Grande (Brazil).
The note, released this Friday in Havana, specifies that this ranking was made by 28 experts from various countries.
To prepare the list, managers and academicians considered a conceptual-methodological framework in which each beach was analyzed according to four dimensions: protection, conservation, recreation, and health.
Judging by these parameters, broken down into carefully evaluated indicators, the beach next to the Meliá Internacional Varadero Hotel scored 98 out of 100.
Its greatest value lies in aspects such as safety, scenic value, water and sand quality, coastline stability, and low episodic pollution.
The area was assessed as “spectacular” and “extensive,” with white sands and transparent blue waters, emblematic for their tourist use and high level of integrated management in the Cifplayas study, available on the website https://www.cifplayas.org.
