Guide author Claire Boobbyer has done a fantastic job introducing visitors to Cuba with this new pocket sized (4” x 7”) full color Cuba travel guide.

The inside cover is a thoughtfully designed triple panel fold out of Habana Vieja and Centro Habana on one side with a full map of Cuba on the reverse. Inside the back cover there is a pocket that holds a 13” x 20” fold out map with a Vedado, Centro Habana and Habana Vieja street map with index. The map’s paper appears to be waterproof and tear proof so it is durable, very handy and easy to use.

There are almost 200 pages packed with just the right information for beginners and experienced travelers. She hits all the highlights and gives reader plenty of details with regards to specialty tours, lodging, food and entertainment. For $12.99, you need to take this paperback travel guide to Cuba with you.

The list of contents of Cuba day by day is very impressive. The guide starts off with her twenty favorite moments from around Cuba so no matter where you find yourself in Cuba, Claire offers a nearby highlight.
