    It is by far the most useful book on Cuba I’ve ever come across. Almost any guidebook can provide the standard list of hotels, tourist hotspots, and eateries. None of them will give you this kind of in-depth, behind-the-scenes information that you will only figure out on your own after years of living among the locals, speaking the language.

At the time the dollar was banned.   ‘Rum, Rumba, And Romance’: A Book On Cuba’s Enduring Mystique. By NPR. Decem Share: Cuba is dominating the news, following President Obama’s announcement that he will begin to.
