About the Author:

The author, Christopher Howard, is a columnist for "Costa Rica Today" newspaper, the Costa Rican Residents Association's bimonthly magazine, "La Voz," and the award-winning newsletter, "The Costa Rica Outlook." For the last eleven years he has written and published the perennially best-selling guidebook, "The New Golden Door to Retirement and Living in Costa Rica." In addition, he has graduate degrees in Spanish and Latin American Studies. Christopher Howard is one of the few authors of guidebooks about Latin America, who actually lives there permanently. It is not surprising, therefore, that he is considered one of the foremost experts in all areas of living and investing south of the border.

Review:

I have travelled to Cuba about fifteen times and even lived there on one occasion. After reading "Living and Investing in the New Cuba" I venture to say the author has done his research. This is not surprising since he has lived in Latin America for many years and has ample experience writing about a similar topic in his perennial bestseller, "The New Golden Door to Retirement and Living in Costa Rica."

Eventually the U.S. will drop the embargo and relations will be normalized with Cuba. Cuba will become a prime travel destination for U.S. citizens and ripe for retirement and increased foreign investment. Sooner or later opportunities will abound since there is a consumer market of 11,000,000 people on the island and the country has been cut off from the mainstream for so long.

The good news is that the capitalist revolution and the winds of change have already begun in Cuba: the dollar is legal currency, limited foregin investment is permitted, there is some free enterprise and tourism continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

This unique guidebook really provides a lot of food for thought for anyone seriously thinking about how to take advantage of all of the opportunities which exist now and in the future in Cuba. It even tells how to learn Cuban-style Spanish before you move there, find companionship, lists possible start-up business ideas, provides names and addresses of useful contacts, tell how to protect your assets while living as an expatriate, has activities to keep you busy and happy, recommends the best places to live and much more. There are a series of colorful vignettes by other authors who have lived in Cuba. One in particular by Christopher Baker, the award-winning author of Moon Publication's best-selling "Cuba Handbook" and soon to be released "Havana Handbook", really stands out. In short, you shouldn't leave home without this one-of-a-kind book if you go to Cuba to check out the investment scene or the possibility of living there someday. -- By Bruce Wallace Special for Central America Weekly

If you plan to live or invest in Cuba, you should read the book. -- Central America Weekly
