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

mindblowing


Cuba is still a social society, where you need to know someone to know someone to get anything done or figure anything out. Wifi spots are few and can be far between depending on where you are in the country. Based on who is in favor, restaurants are able to secure very different levels of qualities and amounts of ingredients.

satisfied


Very useful book if one wants to understand more about the US-Cuba relationship. I found that the info within helps give context. My wife read it and, during a recent trip to Cuba, many of my relatives were very pleasantly surprised by how much she knew about Cuba's history. She told them that it was mostly from what she learned reading this book.
