By RR Waller TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 18 Nov. 2011
Format: Paperback
Written for people who like to get around rather than the hotel/bar/beach/dining/bed brigade, Top Ten guides have been constant companions on trips for many years; written in an accessible style, organised in a logical way, well illustrated with lots of pictures and usually with a fold-up map, they are small in size but not in content. Having previously ignored suggestions in Crete, recently we followed the "Top Ten" and discovered an idyllic area of absolute joy, making us fall further in love with the island all over again. (We also saw a large shanty town there, within three kilometres of the airport.)

"Top Tens" give good lists of "Tens" in places to go, where to eat, visits to make and their recommendations are good (even if some have become out-dated). Sections on Havana are particularly good and, if travellers are there for two weeks, I recommend a two-venue visit, e.g. Havana and Varaderro. In Havana, remember to visit the old quarter, the Hotel Nacional de Cuba and watch out for the entrepreneurial cigar sellers; you may be lucky but they are probably banana leaves, not Cohibas and not rolled on shapely Cuban thighs! The "Top Ten" has other helpful hints too.

Although I agree with the reviewer who pointed out that guides are out-of-date as the ink dries, some seem more out-of-date than others, especially (as one other reviewer points out) in somewhere changing as fast as Cuba; it is always helpful to check a book's publication date. In the times we have been, we have noticed the growth in new hotels (especially in the north west of the island), the increase in newer cars, the continuation of re-development of housing beyond the tourist areas.

I am visiting Cuba in July for a wedding anniversary. I expected the guide to be a little more in depth. It didn't cover what I wanted to know. No mention about swimming with dolphins. I have found more info on trip advisor on line.

Small enough to keep with you on your travels and easy to find the information quickly and concisely. All the maps were useful, clearly marked and detailed. All in all a great little guide, what more could you need.

A brilliant little book. There's lots of useful information inside it and so easy to read. It's a handy size for travelling and will fit in a handbag.

I personally like this type of guide book as it quickly shows you the top 10 of things you want to see/do/eat. Whilst not as comprehensive as others (lonely planet/rough guide), I get what I need quickly. We had 3 days in Havana it this got us to see all those must do things, as well as some excellent restaurants.

One downside to this book is the pull out map. Whilst an excellent idea, it is just too small to read as it covers the whole of Cuba. If you have excellent eyesight it might be ok for you.
