1.0 out of 5 stars What to avoid in a guide book 18 Jan 2012
By sanchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have visited Cuba a number of times since 2001. About two years ago I decided to invest in a guide book to find out what I had been missing. Having never used a guidebook I purchased several just to see which one I liked best. None of them were perfect. But what I discovered was that without a functional index a guidebook is next to worthless. You spend all your time thumbing through the book to find that one restaurant you remembered reading about but can't locate for love or money. Finally, in frustration you throw the darn thing away. As you guessed, the Moon guide has no index. If you want my copy it is in a landfill outside Havana. I also purchased Moon Cuba. Same story.
