With widespread travel to Cuba finally permitted to Americans, a large audience will enthusiastically welcome this authoritative guide written by a leading expert in travel to the Caribbean's largest island-nation. Claire Boobbyer, a British citizen who has been spending months each year in Cuba since 1998, is a frequent speaker on Cuba to prestigious travel organizations, a featured television commentator on Cuba for the BBC, a leader of tours to Cuba for the Smithsonian and other groups, a writer on Cuba for Britain's The Telegraph and other newspapers. She has carefully designed her 288-page Easy Guide to Cuba to emphasize her choices of the best facilities and attractions for those Americans who are now able to make the trip.
Claire Boobbyer has more than 14 years of experience working in Cuba as a travel writer and photographer. She has also guided small groups of people around Cuba, and worked with Smithsonian Journeys, National Geographic, and the New York Times bringing licensed American groups into Cuba. She is the author of previous Frommer's Cuba guides, and she writes travel and cultural articles about Cuba for magazines, newspapers and online media. Claire understands most colloquial Cubanismos, dances Cuban salsa, and is greatly honored to be called 'almost Cuban' by all the people she has met across the island during the last 16 years. She divides her time between London and Cuba.
