There has not been a complete cruising guide to Cuba since 1996 when Nigel Calder wrote his.

A Cruising Guide to CUBA
By Amaia Agirre and  Frank Virgintino
1st Edition 2013
Available as a pdf download from www.freecruisingguides.com
It is expected that a kindle version will be available in a few weeks.

 

This very comprehensive new guide to Cuba is a must-read for anyone planning to visit the island. It is obvious that a lot of work has been put into producing it, and for it to be made available to others at no cost is very commendable.

The first quarter of the book is devoted to a detailed description of the island’s history, culture and the significance of its position in the Caribbean and the major weather patterns affecting it. It also covers formalities and regulations for cruising yachts and their crew.

The guide then moves on to cover the individual areas around the coast. It includes detailed descriptions of each port or anchorage it is possible to visit, together with information on the attractions ashore as well as the more mundane, yet vital, services information (water, provisions etc.).

The whole guide is lavishly illustrated thoughout with great colour photos, charts and satellite images.

Highly recommended.

I for one, would never wish to visit Cuba without first having read this guide and then having it constantly to hand when cruising there. It is in my opinion the most complete and up to date guide available and wonderfully presented.
