I read anything Cuba related that Christopher Baker writes.

I have read several previous versions of Moon’s Cuba handbook and Christopher’s Havana specific Moon handbook

I’ve read his Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling Through Castro’s Cuba and his coffee table book Cuba Classics about the classic American cars in Cuba.

So, whenever there is anything Cuba related written by him, I have to get the book and read. This year Moon publicist Jodee Krainik was kind enough to send me a promotional copy. She did not ask me to write an article about the new handbook but it is my pleasure to do so.

Moon Cuba Handbook 2010

This is a great update to the latest version since many things are happening in Cuba now.

Along with comprehensive information about everything on the island of Cuba there are also:

75 detailed and easy to read maps
A Spanish phrasebook with Cuban Spanish
US laws regarding travel to Cuba by Americans
Advice on getting to, from and around Cuba.
677 pages

    I am a Cuban-American, living in the USA since the 70s.  I have never been back to my country but I hope one day I will be able to.

    Being Cuban, I read almost daily, on the web, one or more articles that have to do with my country.  It will never cease to amaze me the fascination of Americans with the old cars in Cuba.  Can’t you see anything else there?  Does not bother you the fact that the conuntry is destroyed, that putting aside the hotels and resorts made for the turists, the rest of the country looks like a war zone?  Do you ever put your eyes on the people, trying to figure out what is deeper than the smile for the camara?
    How superficial, how hollow, how indiferent the point of view of Americans as a group…....... and how sad.

    This is a travel guide for tourists. It describes the many beauties of Cuba.

    Have you read the book?

    Mr. Baker is very fair in his descriptions.
