See Cuba through the eyes of a local.
They don’t tell you where to eat or to sleep but how to find good food and a ditto bed. How to live like a Cuban and how to get more out of your stay. they show you how to make friends, how to handle problems and how to find your way.
And on top of that, they have some funny stories and deeper insights.
If you’ve already been to Cuba they advise you not to read it unless you have a healthy sense of humour and are able to laugh at yourself… Man… did you do some stupid things while in Cuba :-).
We do apologise for that! You should have read our book.'
Do you want to make your trip to Cuba more satisfying?
You want to recognise a scam before they get you and have a smart way out ready?
Do you want to avoid unnecessary costs?
Do you want to get in touch with the real Cuban people?
Are you the curious, adventurous type?
Then you should really read our book!
This is what Karin Muller says about it:
I just finished reading CubaConga. It is by far the most useful book on Cuba I’ve ever come across. Almost any guidebook can provide the standard list of hotels, tourist hotspots, and eateries. None of them will give you this kind of in-depth, behind-the-scenes information that you will only figure out on your own after years of living among the locals, speaking the language, and making a whole lot of expensive and painful mistakes.
I will be recommending it to anyone who is going to Cuba and wants more than the standard tourist resort experience. It will save them 10 times the cover price and they will have a far richer cultural experience.
You know this is verbatim because her legal team would sue my ass if I just made this up!
Just a tip:
Arriving at the airport you will find the queue at the money exchange challenging, to say the least. Everybody wants CUCs and the process is slow. Waiting time between one and two hours, and that’s after you’ve survived the customs lines!
There are two solutions to this problem:
– Go up the stairs in Havana or next door in all other airports and in departures there is another exchange boot, without the waiting lines.
Well, until everybody reads this of course.
– An even simpler solution is to be found in the book among loads of other inspiring and revealing information. There is even a way to avoid the long lines at customs.
Read this book if you want to understand Cuba better. Don't if you are looking for a list to tick off or a dreamy 'Mojito and Salsa' picture. Cuba is so much more than Cigars and Old cars.
