Nicholas Wollaston started his travels in Cuba in February 1961. By the time he had journeyed through Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica,. Panama, Haiti, the Dminican Republic and Puerto Rico and arrived back in Cuba, he hat encountered very varied political and social states, Duvalier's Haiti, the assassination of the Dominican Republic's dictator Trujillo and arrived back in Cuba to find the USA-backed invasion had failed and Castro's Cuba had developed a new confidence.

A rather dated now but interesting from a historical point of view, look at Cuba and some surrounding countries. I read it as I have recently visited Cuba and previously read another of Wollaston's books. Very slim volume maybe worth a look if you are interested in this region.
