No doubt about it, Castro, Inc. knows its priorities.
To hell with Cubans, let them fend for themselves.
But let’s fix those apartheid tourist facilities as quickly as possible!
The European hotel chains that run these resorts have paid the repair bills, you can be sure of that, but without the help of Castro, Inc.’s “crucial support” progress would have been infernally slow.
So, while Cubans still struggle to recover from Hurricane Irma –unassisted by the Castro, Inc. — tourists can once again return to their favorite apartheid enclaves.

Meliá Cuba has begun reopening hotels affected by Hurricane Irma in the resorts of Cayo Santa María, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo and Varadero.
The hotel group said the Cuban tourism authorities had offered “crucial support” to help repair damage from the category five hurricane, which devastated some areas in the north of the island including Jardines del Rey, Cayo Santa María and Varadero.
Meliá Cuba says it has had chance to make improvements during the closure of the hotels, to create new products for the upcoming high season.
In Varadero, the Meliá Peninsula Varadero and Paradisus Varadero hotels reopened on October 15.
In Cayo Santa Maria, the Meliá Cayo Santa María and Meliá Las Dunas hotels will be back in service on November 1, and the Meliá Buenavista and Sol Cayo Santa María hotels will restart operations on November 15.
