Pete’s New “Havana Before Castro” Website and Tour Maps

Because of the renewed interest in Cuba travel, it made sense to completely revamp my Havana Before Castro website.  It includes chapter summaries, a downloadable sample chapter, and cool Then & Now photos.   Take a look!

People are using the book as a tour guide to Havana.  For instance, there’s a map of the incredible hotels, casinos, nightclubs, restaurants and bars associated with the American mob before the revolution.

Another tour is of the amazing modern architecture found throughout Greater Havana.

 And I plan on organizing a guided tour of Havana in the fall of 2016.  Stay tuned!
