This book 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 wrote in this book, the economic experts estimate that tourism will be able to produce 12% of the country's total GDP. This could be true if a saying by the former president (Fidel Castro) is anything to go by. Fidel Castro said that tourism could save Cuba as a country. In 2008, an all time high tourism record tipped to near 2.7billion. With the emergence of foreign investors, majorly investing in hospitality industry the tourism index is set to rise to new levels. More income will be required though, to take care of City's infrastructure. The City is having a facelift to attain status of modern tourist destination hub with around 10% under rehabilitation. There is still more work that needs attention in order to reap maximum benefits from tourism.
