Warning: At the end of this page you might want to read the book 🙂
And between you and me, you should…
If you believe that all valuable information should be for free, this page is not for you. How do I keep a blog like this alive…? By selling an e-book with even more valuable information.
I don’t tell you where to eat or to sleep but how to find good food and a decent bed. How to live like a Cuban and how to get more out of your stay. I show you how to make friends, how to handle problems and how to find your way. I have some funny stories and deeper insights for you.
Cuba Conga starts where the Lonely Planet ends and it’s not a substitute.
You might have noticed that I’m not a native speaker but don’t worry, the book has been edited by someone who is :-).
Arriving at the airport, you will find the line at the money exchange challenging, to say the least. Everybody wants CUCs, and the process is slow. Every bill is checked, and the serial number entered in the computer. Not everybody has read our book, so some people change 20 tenners. Waiting time between one and two hours, and that’s after you’ve survived the customs lines!
There are two solutions to this problem:
- Go up the stairs in Havana, or next door in all other airports, and in departures there is another exchange boot, without the waiting lines. Well, until everybody reads my blog of course :-).
- Go across the street. In the Gallery there is another exhange booth that nobody seems to know.
– An even simpler solution is in our book (I have to keep some information for sale, sorry, everybody has to eat ☺)… Now that I’ve refunded your time, let me improve your stay in Cuba and make it more interesting.
If you’ve already been to Cuba, I advise you not to read it unless you have a healthy sense of humour and can laugh at yourself…
Man… did you do some stupid things while in Cuba :-).
I do apologise for that! You should have read our book.
This is what Karin Muller has to say about our book:
I just finished reading CubaConga. 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, and making a whole lot of expensive and painful mistakes.
I will be recommending it to anyone who is going to Cuba and wants more than the standard tourist resort experience. It will save them 10 times the cover price and they will have a far richer cultural experience.
You know this is verbatim because her legal team would sue my ass if I just made this up! 🙂
You can find (part) of her PBS series on Cuba HERE
To return the compliment: Her PBS series on Cuba is by far the best documentary on Cuba I have seen so far.
Back to why you should read our book:
Do you want to make your trip to Cuba more satisfying?
You want to recognise a scam before they get you and have a smart way out ready?
Do you want to avoid unnecessary costs?
Do you want to get in touch with the real people?
Are you the curious, adventurous type?
Then get CubaConga the 2019 edition.
I promise it will add an extra dimension to your trip and reduce your budget by 30%.
If you don’t trust me yet, and I can relate to that. You can also get it at the Amazon store. I prefer you buy it directly from me because they (Amazon) take a large cut. But feel free to get it wherever you like. It’s more important you get the info, then where the money goes… Just go to Amazon to check out the reviews and then please come back here :-). They don’t have our full refund guarantee…
Please leave us a review on Amazon if you buy it there :-).
Enjoy! It is risk-free (no good, for whatever reason = money back) so get it now and add an extra dimension to your stay in Cuba!
Get it for free or Donate.
I’m experimenting this month:
I believe that everybody should read my book because it’s the best investment you can make if you go to Cuba. Knowledge is power and fun. Still, some people read this blog and decide not to ‘invest’ in the book. If you are one of those people, sent me a mail explaining why you don’t want to buy it and if I like your ‘reason’, I will send it to you for free… firstname.lastname@example.org
Yup, I think it’s that important your read it before you go because I do know a lot more about Cuba than you do, and I love it, so I want you to enjoy it too…
Now if you make the decision that you don’t want to buy the book (which you probably will regret) and you think this website is useful to you and want to support our work, you can also donate:
Let me help you to have a great time…

What other people say: (on Amazon):
Easy read with good stories and a sense of humour.
Best travel guide I have ever read and to be honest – I usually don’t read travel guides – because I think they are boring and don’t give you any insights apart from a “bucket list” with boxes to check – this one is completely different.
So if you feel like getting actual insights into Cuba and be a bit prepared – buy this guide – it is worth every single cent!
Insiders look at the real Cuba and its people.
Covering the do,s and don’ts, the why’s and Really does that happen?
A good read and the first non-boring guide I have read with a few laughs thrown in.
