I must say, however, that I found this edition lacking in information I expected to find. There is no mention of books or bookstores in the index. (Maybe there are none. I do not know.) Additionally there is no advice given for LGBT travelers. Even though I read that the LGBT community is treated better than years ago (I read Renaldo Arenas’ chilling but important autobiography BEFORE NIGHT FALLS) surely the topic should have been addressed here. Neither is Hemingway listed in the index. Shouldn’t he be? Photographs, so important to any travel guide, are certainly not in abundance.
Additionally the book is very repetitious. We read over and over that the food may not be very exciting to tourists and why. And the different kinds of peso for travelers as opposed to the natives comes up again and again.
Some of the information is outdated since the book got written before the U. S. Presidential election in November, 2017. The writers repeat the information many times that there are no direct flights from the states. (They certainly have a right to be wrong and updated on that bit since there are daily direct flights from cities in the U. S. to Havana. They didn’t need to tell us that over and over. Once or twice would have sufficed.)
Had I had a chance to thumb through this book, I would probably not have purchased it, but that is one of the perils of buying a book via the internet.
Of course I would take this book with me. But I would look into another as well.
Some of the information was out-of-date, and that sort of makes since things are changing so fast. For example, the 10% additional charge for using American $$ has been changed in Jan 2016, as has the US requirements for visits.
Do Not Recommended it.!!
