1.0 out of 5 stars Hopelessly out of date, 13 Feb. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Cuba (Lonely Planet Country Guides) (Paperback)
Obviously things can change quickly, but this book (3rd edition) is obsolete. Prices are all listed in dollars, which are now useless in Cuba as you have to use the Cuban Equivalent Peso. The cubans have taken this to push prices through the roof, so you'll be paying extortionate amounts of money for things the Lonely Planet suggests are very cheap. Cuba is a hopless ripoff at the moment as a result, and you'll find yourself paying european prices for the most basic and sullen of service.
Also, I found some of the accomadation listed is actually for Cubans only, and tourists are not allowed to stay. Very very annoying when you find yourself forced to sleep in your car in the middle of nowhere.
