Cuba Open from the Inside

Travels in the Forbidden Land

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Cuba occupies a place of undisputed fascination in the American psyche. Despite its proximity to America, this island nation remains a mystery to most Americans. Few Americans have traveled to Havana, and still fewer have traveled deeper into this isolated country.
Chris Messner, photographer, is one of the few Americans who have been able to travel extensively throughout this island. In his book, Cuba Open from the Inside, Messner documents the character of Cuba's people, its rich history, and the vast culture of the country.
Through multiple journeys, Messner has covered more than 4,000 miles on the back roads of the island nation of Cuba. Through his words and pictures, he provides a snapshot of Cuba of today—the 1950s time-capsule country 90 miles from the US coast.

"Messner's personal journey as told through his travel logs and photographs of Cuba and its people is inspiring."

Charles Regan, Vice President, National Geographic Maps

"Messner takes you into the island on a rare, intimate journey through the eyes of a detailed photographer. This book will expose you to Cuba's rich history, intertwined with a touching, personal narrative."

Stephanie Chen, Former Travel Writer,
