"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Although I agree with the reviewer who pointed out that guides are out-of-date as the ink dries, some seem more out-of-date than others, especially (as one other reviewer points out) in somewhere changing as fast as Cuba; it is always helpful to check a book's publication date.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.Read more ›
I would reccomend to anyone, great for the kindle too.
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.

For the price and postage should have just brought a new book
Very informative, covers all that you need to see BUT electric adaptors incorrect, Cuba is not the flat pin ones of USA but the round pins of Europe.Published on 26 Dec. 2013 by Amazon Customer

Loved Top Ten travel guides so having them on Kindle is great. Lack of colour (on my Kindle) makes maps etc. less attractive but still great.Published on 22 July 2013 by M. Beck
