CubaConga is not ‘Just another book’ about Cuba. Let us introduce ourselves to you:
About the Author(s)
Just like everything else in this book I am/we are just a fantasy. You could refer to us as “your very knowledgeable friends from Cuba). Any resemblance to real author(s) is a mistake, a big mistake. A very big mistake indeed. We’ve decided to write ‘not just another book about Cuba’ to help you get the most of your stay on this bizarre island.
We are the collective that took on the task to write the inside story about Cuba for real travellers who want to avoid awkward situations and get the most out of their trip to this great Island. From now on we will refer to ourselves in the first-person.
Nothing you know about Cuba is true.
OK, I’ll admit that it is an island somewhere south of Florida and that they have a lot of old cars, but everything else is just not true. I’ve been to Cuba many, many times and still is only half of what `I think’ true. This gives me still a lovely 50% margin of error. One of the most intriguing aspects of Cuba is that our usual reference frame just does not fit. Cuba is an exercise in being wrong, making the wrong estimations and predictions about situations and people. It is one big surprise.
Most things being said about Cuba are dead wrong. A well-known travel site claims that Cuban prices are about similar to those in Europe or Canada. I admit that if you do not have a clue about how things work, this is more or less true. Now, 8 years later and having spent almost 3 years in total in Cuba, costs are about half of those during my first visit. The intention of this book is to help you to get the most out of your vacation by showing you what could go wrong so that you can avoid all the rookie mistakes I made.
Let me give you a simple guarantee:
This book about Cuba will cut your expenses by at least 30% and will enhance your understanding of the Island, and you’ll have a lot more fun!
The three basic rules for every traveller can be summarized as follows:
1 50% of what Cubans tell you, I can prove are lies, the other half I’m not sure about.
2 Nothing is what it seems. You are always wrong.
3 The former rules don’t always apply.
