This region is technically part of the United States, i know its pretty much all used by the military but is there a way for tourist to visit?

If not do you think it could be possible to build hotels and other developments for tourist?
I ask because it actually looks very pretty

It's a military base and it is outside the USA. It is not part of the USA.

No, you can't build a hotel or tourist developments on a military base.

If the United States suspects you of being a terrorist you might be able to pay a visit.

Well the US owns that small portion of land around the bay so technically it is part of the USA

On a politics note, if Castro wasn't such a pain, the U.S. would have probably returned Guantanamo decades ago (as we did with the base in Puerto Rico). Of course, after it was turned into a prison, the calculus changed.

No. The USA owns military bases, buildings. and houses all over the world. There is a base in Turkey and that doesn't make a corner of Turkey part of the USA. There are bases in Italy. That doesn't make a corner of Italy into part of the USA. The bases in England don't make a bit of England into part of the USA.

The only "parts" of the USA are the 50 states, DC, and the legal territories of the USA (Puerto Rico, American Virgin Islands, American Samoa, etc).

There is the occasional Delta flight to Guantanamo Bay. Try that out!

The US does not own the land. It was leased in 1903, for $4,000 a month. Cuba does not cash the checks, but honors the lease.

The terms of the open-ended lease are that the United States will have absolute jurisdiction and control over the area and in return will recognize the Republic of Cuba's ultimate sovereignty over the area.

To date, the USA has paid $5.4-million for Guantanamo Bay, compared to $7.1-million for Alaska.
