"Time Out" Havana, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Riddled with cliches, many of them true, Havana is like no other city in the Caribbean - or in the world.

Living with the effects of an embargo dating back nearly 50 years, it is constantly trying to move into the 21st century while proudly embracing its past.

On 1 August 2006, less then two weeks before his 80th birthday, Fidel Castro - the world's longest-serving political leader - took the unprecedented step of handing over power to his brother, Raul, who he had already chosen to succeed him when he dies.

Even if this proves to be merely a temporary measure, this latest setback is a reminder that Havana could be about to change forever.

If you haven't visited before, go now. *Sightseeing in Havana *Havana hotels *Havana restaurants *Havana bars *Havana shops *Havana maps *The best of Cuba, including Varadero and Santiago de Cuba

Great guide to Havana. Pretty up to date (as of May 2008) and has some really good information. Brilliant to look at on return!
