I have been to Cuba many times, and consumed everything I could find in print and internet over the last 10 years. This is the best and most informative guide I have found. These authors really did their homework. Any guide can meet your basic needs when traveling, but when going to a place where locals don't speak your language or one as inscrutable as Cuba, you can feel lost and cry out for a personal, local tour guide. This guidebook is as close as you can get to your own Cuban docent. You can feel the authors' passion and connection with what is incomparable about Cuba and Cubans. Another characteristic that distinguishes this book from almost everything else out there about Cuba. These writers don't take sides, neither government bashers or apologists. They leave it up to you to go to Cuba and discover its reality for yourself. With its insider information, beautiful photos and personal stories, you can enjoy this guide if you have never been to Cuba and even may never go there. I am totally persuaded that in the not very distant future Cuba will become a world-class destination for rock climbers and probably for cavers, divers, and other adventure travelers. This guide is a mandatory first stop if thinking of visiting Cuba.
If your going to cuba to climb then this is the book to have. you can't get it in cuba so buy it before you leave. mine took about two weeks to arrive. it is a excellent climbing guide with color photos. It also has some good information about were to stay and the history of climbing in cuba.
