This Rough Guide is the most up-to-date, full-length guide to one of the Caribbean's most compelling destinations. The authors' twenty-four "things not to miss" present a selective taste of the country's highlights; fine colonial buildings, stunning scenery, outdoor activities and cultural entertainment. The guide is full of informed descriptions and accurate listings of the best bars, restaurants and music venues to be seen at, from the lively city of Havana to the seaside resorts of Cayo Coco and Guardalavaca. Each listing is pinpointed on clear, easy-to-use maps and plans. There is well-written background on the country's turbulent history and detailed essays on Cuban sport, music, and wildlife.
