I'm not from Cuba, but my Canadian friends have been visiting it for years. Now that this little country is coming back into the world's social circles, I want to know more about her. This Lightning Guide is a great, quick and easy read with lots of pictures and interesting tidbits. Just what I was looking for.
I really love this book, especially that I’m Cuban myself. This really does tell people what to expect when visiting the country. With a country like Cuba, you really want to know all the facts and know where to go and where not to do. This is a great book for everyone!
