Publisher's Summary

Discover the majestic world of Cuba. Find out everything you need to know before packing your suitcase! 

Cuba is the place of the infamous Cohiba cigars, the delicious Havana Club rum, the special Cubita or Serrano black coffee, and the birthplace of the well-known rumba, mambo, and salsa dances! But there’s so much more one has to know before visiting Cuba.

Cuba Travel Guide by Carlos Fernando Alvarez is your in-depth, up-to-date guide on one of the most iconic tourist destinations on planet Earth. 

Whether you’re a seasoned backpacker or newbie tourist with a few trips under your belt wondering about a new location for your next trip, Cuba Travel Guide is the best companion you could possibly hope for in a country like Cuba. 

It tells you how to navigate visa troubles as an American citizen due to the strained relationship between the two countries going back almost five decades and how to avoid the common scams by unscrupulous people, issues that other guides seem to gloss over, and tells you ways to avoid this and focus on having an enjoyable stay. 

Unwrap the daily subtleties and nuances of daily Cuban life by staying in casa particulares, the Airbnb-like system for tourist coming into Cuba on a budget; lose yourself in the comfort of choice Cuba’s luxury hotels and resorts if you have the cash to splurge; enjoy the antique architecture of Old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; bathe in the sun on the ivory white beaches of Varadero; revel in the natural scenery and explore the cave systems of Vinales; walk the cobbled streets of Trinidad and swim under the waterfalls of the Topes De Collantes National Park amd enjoy authentic Cuban dishes...and more! 

Other practical things you'll learn:

  • What kind of currency you are going to need 
  • Where the best traditional and affordable places are to eat

worth money

If you want in depth information, you might want to consider something longer, but I’ve traveled a lot internationally and I can say I definitely got my money’s worth with DK’s Cuba guide.

This book was amazing for our trip to Cuba. Perfect descriptions of Havana and other cities, historical events and locations, and the culture. It's even honest about some places to not visit, which locals we met agreed with.
