    Hi

    Can anyone help me out with the word 'facilista'. It's about a hotel:

    ...para un público que no busca la naturaleza ni menos la cultura local, sino el placer inmediato y la fantasía facilista.

    Obviously, the word is derived from fácil, but I can't think of a decent translation.

    Many thanks in advance!

    What about "the instant fantasy"?

    The word is derived from facilismo, which of course is derived from fácil. Maybe the definition of facilismo will help you find a better translation:

    facilismo.
    1. m. Arg., Cuba, Ec., Hond., Ur. y Ven. Tendencia a hacer o lograr algo sin mucho esfuerzo, de manera fácil y sin sacrificio.



    Need I say it has a negative connotation?

    Saludos.

    Hola scouse30:

    Un público que es fácil de complacer. No hace falta hacer grandes esfuerzos para complacerle. Algo como simplistic

    Saludos

    Here´s another one: "the postcard fantasy". "Postcard" and "facilismo" go hand in hand...
