5.0 out of 5 stars My guide round Cuba, 18 Nov. 2010
By 
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Cuba (Paperback)
I travelled round Cuba for 2 weeks and found the guide invaluable. In a country where public transport is tricky to navigate, the book offered pretty up-to-date information and options.
The most useful recommendation was a lovely woman who owned a Casa Particular in Centro Habana. She was full when we arrived so got her son in law to put us up. It was right in the middle of "real" Havana and I happily spent time just being part of life there. Her recommendations kept coming, with CP to stay in Trinidad and Santiago - both of which were the most beautiful colonial houses and owned by the loveliest people.
Places to eat were spot on, especially if you learn to love the ubiquitous "delicious black beans". Things change so fast in Cuba that sometimes we found some things had moved on or ceased to exist - like a salsa dance studio - but some chat with the local Cubans soon found an alternative place or experience. In short, the book was a great guide, starting point and crutch, the rest of Cuba soon unfolds through the people...
