Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really really want to visit Cuba! For some strange reason, we have booked two times to visit Cuba and both times something major happened. One being the death of my father :-( So I have never been. But this little book is one that i will take with me on my trip when I DO get to go in the future. So, hether you are an armchair traveller or you actually wish to visit the country, you should consider this book. Fascinating factual book, illustrations, customs, food etc. Also things to avoid, best time of year to go and usually some language expressions. Not a big book either, fits nicely into your purse or bag.
