What happens when you pit four Cuba guides from Lonely Planet, Frommer’s, Rough Guides, and Moon (obviously our favorite) against each other? One guide always seems to outshine the rest.
After a rigorous round of comparison testing and assessments on important guidebook components, popular adventure travel site, Gadling  let the cat out of the bag when it declared, “Moon [Cuba] is a sure thing.”
• Author: There's really no doubt about the most experienced Cuba author in the bunch. Moon’s Christopher P. Baker has been traveling to Cuba for nearly 20 years—once by motorcycle. He's even met Fidel Castro.
• Accurate information: Moon Handbooks is chock full of accurate and insightful info. Spot-on addresses, up-to-date phone numbers, and exact hours of operation are all there.
It’s clear that Moon Cuba  passed Gadling ’s thorough examination with flying colors as it came out on top for having the most authoritative author, accurate information, and best online source. With Cuba gracing headlines these days, Moon has this hot spot—and others—covered.
For more on Baker, his background, and thoughts on Cuba, please check out his blog  on moon.com as well as his website . And make sure to read Gadling ’s “Talking Travel” interview  with Baker that was posted last week. Oh, and if you happen to be in the Pasadena area this Wednesday, April 29th, stop by Distant Lands  at 7:30 p.m. for an engaging PowerPoint presentation of this fascinating island—Baker and Moon Cuba  are sure to be crowd pleasers.
Viva la Cuba!
