Butts on #Cuban beaches

I love Cuban beaches. Keep them beautiful.

I know, I’ve made cracks about butts before. This rant is different.

Cuba is about to become a popular destination with Americans. As they’re going to find out, the beaches are amazing.

Turquoise warm water, white sand. Clean. Well, mostly clean.

The resort employees work incredibly hard to keep places shipshape. You won’t find harder working or kinder people anywhere.

The dog hating tourist …

But, the beaches are public in Cuba (and had better stay that way). Some of the tourists who presently visit them are, well, pigs.

The Cuban cat …

I’ll take a sunburned butt crack over a cigar butt in the sand any day.

To be clear, this isn’t Cubans fouling the beaches with cigar butts. It’s tourists.

Bay of Pigs? Bay of Crabs more like …

The beach is NOT an ashtray or butt receptacle.

I could scream.

I could scream.

Whomever left this here is a jerk.

Here’s my plea to future visitors. Smoke Cuban cigars. Lots of them. They’re the best. When you buy them, you’re putting money into the Cuban economy. That’s a good thing for Cuban families. But DO NOT, for one second, think that it is okay to taint, sully, soil or stain Cuba’s marvellous beaches.

I’ll be visiting Cuba later this year and I’ll be checking.
