About the Author
Mario Rizzi is an entrepreneurial Canadian author. He first visited Cuba in 2007 and fell in love with the island. Since then he has returned dozens of times and considers Havana to be his second home. He has explored every corner of the island, from the major cities to rural communities, and has become intimately acquainted with Cuban culture and lifestyle. Some of his closest friends are Cuban, and they have played an important role in his understanding of the island and the development of his Cuban guide series. One of the things he find most interesting about Cuba is that it has a pervasive entrepreneurial spirit in spite of years of communism To learn more about Mario Rizzi and to follow his blog updates on Havana and Cuba, please visit the website www.BestCubaGuide.com Mario is an avid traveler and his most important goal is to familiarize himself with the culture of a country so that he can explore it like a local would, rather than as a tourist. It often takes a great deal of time and effort to develop this understanding and, as such, thriftiness is an important consideration.

If you want a list of all the Havana tourist attractions, then this is not it. If you want to learn how to explore the authentic side of Havana and really understand the culture, then you need this guide. The author has tons of videos online too and on his website. Those helped me a lot as well.
Well my wife's purse got snatched, as we left a wonderful restaurant on a Saturday evening.It contained only a few CUCs, her passport, visa, and drivers license.
So, here's another tip. Make copies of your visa and passport to carry around with you, and leave your originals in your hotel. It took four hours and $130 to get a temporary replacement passport at the US Embassy, and really created a major headache trying to leave Cuba without an exit visa.
Other than that incident, we had a wonderful trip, and the book provided a lot of good tips to follow. Especially regarding the cigar hustlers. They're everywhere.
