New guidebook offers insight into Cuba's hidden treasures

Tourism continues to boom in Cuba - thanks in part to the thawing of diplomatic relations between the island and America, and now a recently-published travel guide aims to cash in on the upturn in the tourist trade by offering an insight into some of Cuba's hidden gems and things to do and see away from the beaten track.

The guide, entitled "Cuba As Never Before", has been compiled by the noted Hispanic author Louis E.V Nevaer, and includes both classic attractions as well as those that may not be so widely known to general tourists and which offer a fascinating look at traditional Cuban life.

From Havana's numerous rum museums to the famous sites which inspired Ernest Hemingway's writings, Nevaer also identifies a number of key locations in Cuba's contemporary arts scene, as well as some fantastic restaurants and bars serving up delicious local cuisine and tipples.

As if all this wasn't enough, the guide also offers some basic travel advice and guidance for getting to and from the island as well as navigating around the country while travellers are there. Everything from renting a car and tipping taxi drivers to booking the very best flights, cruises, accommodation and private tours is covered, whilst current travel regulations for tourists hoping to visit the island are also explained in depth.

There is even a handy section on Cuba's unique communities and sub-cultures, so you will feel comfortable whilst on the island. From the gay and lesbian scene to religious groups and sports teams, have a read of "Cuba As Never Before" and you will feel well prepared for your stay.
