Get to know the ups and downs of Havana.
Are you planning to visit Havana for your next vacation or to cool off your brain as you learn about Havana’s culture and history? Have you heard many confusing stories about Havana, or worse still, learned for several weeks without getting the real picture of Havana in your previous learning escapades?
This audiobook, History of Havana: Cuba Libre! Havana’s History from Christopher Columbus to Fidel Castro, by Carlos Fernando Alvarez, is the right resource to quench your historical thirst on Havana.
This audiobook details the discovery and establishment of Havana and shows the people behind Havana’s establishment and the specific timelines. It also captures the location, the colonial masters, and the activities therein.
Havana was and still is one of the most strategic and adventurous city in the world. Havana has a lot of history to give to the world. Despite the difficulties, Havana was and still is able to compete with other major cities.
As I said in this audiobook, the economic experts estimate that tourism will be able to produce 12 percent of the country’s total GDP. This could be true, if a saying by the former president (Fidel Castro) is anything by which to go.
Fidel Castro said tourism could save Cuba as a country. In 2008, an all-time high tourism record tipped to nearly 2.7 billion. With the emergence of foreign investors, primarily investing in the hospitality industry, the tourism index is set to rise to new levels.
More income will be required though to take care of the city’s infrastructure. The city is having a face-lift to attain the status of a modern tourist destination hub, with around 10 percent under rehabilitation. There is still more work that needs attention in order to reap maximum benefits from tourism.
