Combining evocative prose and vital information, our updated guide to Cuba introduces the rich culture and fascinating sites of this paradoxical country. Mapped walking tours display the charms of Santiago de Cuba and Old Havana, and a driving tour reveals the breathtaking north coast. 3-D illustrations show the exquisite details of colonial architecture and coral reefs; sidebars explore such interests as cigar making, mangrove swamps, and the home areas of Che Guevara and Jose Marti.
Each "Traveler" guide includes such practical information as getting there and around, where to stay, and cultural and recreational activities to help make the most of your vacation.
