How tourism brings democracy to Cuba

Listening to the media and "Cuba Experts," American tourism will bring democracy to Cuba. A curious method of liberating an enslaved people made even more curiouser by the fact that the millions of tourists already visiting the island have done nothing but help the Castro dictatorship maintain power and repress the Cuban people.

Nevertheless, here is another tourist hotel that is going to "bring democracy to Cuba":

Canadian operator opens fourth hotel in Cuba

Toronto-based Blue Diamond Hotels & Resorts announced it opened its fourth all-inclusive hotel in Cuba, the Memories Flamenco Beach on Cayo Coco, on Feb. 28.

Blue Diamond, a division of tour operator Sunwing Travel Group, also manages the Memories Caribe Beach Resort on Cayo Coco, as well as the Memories Paraiso Beach Resort and the Memories Azul Beach Resort, both on Cayo Santa María.

Both Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa María are part of the Jardines del Rey island chain along Cuba’s north-central coast.

In a press release, the company said the all-suite resort is aiming at a family clientele, offering sports and activities, a daily entertainment program, and a Kids Club.
