Living in Cuba

Just what we need: a new book advising foreigners how to get the most out of living and investing in Fidel Castro’s island paradise.

The electronic book, which is being published by a Panama-based company called Expatebooks, appears to be aimed at prospective retirees in Europe and baby-boomers with more money than sense.

But who are we to judge?

The publishers of Living and Investing in Cuba promise that “whether you are of retirement age, a burned out baby boomer or perpetual traveller, this book should provide you with food for thought and sufficient information to start you on the journey to beginning a new life in Cuba.”

Alluding to changes on the island once Castro kicks the bucket, the publishers say that “now is the moment to come and explore the country that has so much to offer”.

“This guide offers assistance to anyone seeking a safe, affordable place to live abroad,” the publicity blurb says. “It shows you how to stay busy, where to reside, how to learn Spanish, where to find companionship … The country offers something for every imaginable taste and lifestyle.”

So, there you have it.

A new life in Cuba. A safe and affordable place to live. Something for every imaginable taste and lifestyle. And that's just the foreigners! Imagine how the locals must live ...

Enough to make you pack your bags at once. But before you do, you may want to visit our friends at The Real Cuba.

Yeah, buy a property from these communist thieves and when Cuba is free you may find yourself on the wrong side of a property claim.
