Skift Take

Considering the reputation of both the hard-sell sales practices as well as how sales agents are treated in the timeshare industry, this arrangement seems like a poor match for everyone involved. Except, of course, the developer.

If you have ever purchased timeshare accommodation from the Sunset World chain in Cancun or the Riviera Maya, you may never have imagined they were sold from the Bryan Federal Prison Camp in Texas, USA.

The project is a pilot program of rehabilitation for low hazard inmate women that Mexican chain Sunset World began in 2007 with support from the Department of Justice of the United States.
