Tourism & Leisure Development International, LLC (TLDI) is a Miami-based project management firm specializing in the development of international hospitality and tourism property projects. The firm was founded in 2011 by Francisco P. Fuentes, an engineer with 25 years of expertise in the development of large international building projects. Having worked within construction companies, engineering firms, hotel operators and investment funds in Europe, Latin America and the US, Francisco possesses a deep understanding of the construction industry across various cultures and a firm grasp on the requirements of the tourism industry.

Francisco’s expertise is complemented by a strategic partnership with architect Ken Shannon of LHDI. Over the last fifteen years, Francisco and Ken have planned, permitted, designed and built numerous turn-key hospitality projects throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. More recently, they joined forces to provide all design & construction management services for the implementation of three new Hyatt-branded all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica and Mexico for Playa Hotels & Resorts.
