Running head: CULTURAL COMPARISON Cultural Comparison Tiffany Banks January 28, 2019 SPAN/110 Ernesto Ebratt 1 CULTURAL COMPARISON 2 Cultural Comparison This paper explores the nature that is both similarities as well as differences of tourism in Spain and Cuba. Given that it is situated at reverse ends of the conventional sides, the two countries are, as one would suppose a far cry from one another. Yet, they as well display surprising similarities when it comes to tourism. Capitals Spain takes far more land compared to Cuba, while the temperature of Cuba ranges from warm to hot. Such weather seems to attract more tourist than the cold weather in Spain. Contrastingly, most tourists drew to Spain due to their natural endeavors and artworks (Henthorne, 2018). When it comes to language and communication, both countries have Spanish as a common language. However Cuban speak some of English given that they are in America. Thus tourists from English speaking states do not tend to have issues of communications (Henthorne, 2018). Cuban communication tends to compose of a lot of body gestures, eye contact which makes even strangers to make use of endearment or rather a physical contact. Due to Cuban being island and its proximity coupled with climatic similarity to Miami and Florida, it experiences more tourism than Spain following the fact that there are a lot of diverse cultural dishes on the local menus suiting the taste of tourists. Tourism Cuban tourism has long been the primary method of promoting the island with the final objective of advancing economic development. Conversely, the growth rate of tourists arrival in Spain which includes the development of infrastructures such as hotel and alternative CULTURAL COMPARISON 3 accommodations which are found all over the nation are planned by national authorities hence enable them to project the number of foreign tourists they expect (Colantonio, 2017). However, Cuba better part of tourism is managed by private entities. Thus if the entire industry could be taken care of by the state authorities, the sector could be transformed into the second largest tourist destination in Latin America, only after Mexico. The massive incursion of Cubans which promotes domestic tourism takes place in summer holidays, that go well with hotels given that it is their off-peak period, at a time when they are not as booked up with a lot of global tourists (Colantonio, 2017). For instance, the Cuban hotels do carry out outlet campaigns during summers to attract Cuban families, and giving them discounts at different categories such as for children may be aged below ten years and aged parents. Thus Cubans who book and stay in hotels form new economic sector in the state. Conclusion However, in Spain, the quality of hotels is internationally recognized. Thus, they are categorized as scales of one to five stars while in this case the five stars being the highest level (Priego, Rosselló & Santana-Gallego, 2015). Such classification is done by considering the size of the room, the nature, and facilities including devices available which in turn determine the standard of comfort the clients are expected to experience. One can select hotel designated to cater for different complexes since they avail a broad range of facilities for business meetings, children, and others.
