New luxury hotel in Cuba to offer Wi-Fi in every room

Wi-Fi in Cuba? This hotel promises to be first when it opens in November
Cuba's first hotel to offer Wi-Fi in every room won't be in Havana but
rather at a beach resort in Cayo Coco on the north side of the island

French company Accor Hotels, which operates international brands
Sofitel, Pullman and Novotel, last week made the Wi-Fi promise in
announcing that it plans to open the luxury Pullman Cayo Coco Hotel in

Americans can now reserve home stays in Cuba on Airbnb
The hotel is to have 518 rooms and face a long stretch of Los Colorados

The idea of a luxury resort with Wi-Fi is part of making Cuba more
attractive to visitors. Recently relaxed rules for U.S. travelers have
opened the door to American interest, but just how much do we want to go?

Travel agency company Travel Leaders Group recently asked more than
3,300 Americans whether they would be interested in visiting Cuba if all
U.S. government restrictions were lifted.

Eight percent of U.S. respondents said "I'd go immediately" -- a figure
up slightly from 2014 findings.

Thirty-five percent said they would consider going, an increase of about
3% from 2014. But 39% said they have no interest in going.

The company also asked respondents for their "ultimate dream
international destination." Australia tops the list, followed by Italy,
Ireland, New Zealand and taking a cruise to Europe.
