Between 1968 and 1972. At that time, the National Tourism Office commissioned and distributed these short films that emphasized modernity and comfort in contrast to the exotic and almost pristine nature of our tourist destinations. This new wave of mass tourism became one of the main sources of income for Mexico and the Caribbean. The Cuban historian Manuel Moreno Fraginals called it: The fourth plantation, alluding to economic practices of monoculture and neocolonization.
