"Traveling like a local means experiencing a new location just like a local would: immersing yourself in the culture, doing what they do, eating what they eat, and avoiding the cookie-cutter tourist experience."
"Like a Local" series includes New Orleans, the Caribbean, Miami and the Keys, Buenos Aires and Cuba. E-book versions will be available July - and the next five titles in the series, New York, London, Peru, Washington, D.C., and the "Great Cities of Europe," are due out in April 2013.
The Caribbean - White sands, sea breezes, turquoise waters, coral reefs, reggae rhythms,—these are the siren call of the Caribbean, luring souls in search of relaxation. The Caribbean Like a Local captures the history, architecture, music and culinary traditions of the sunny islands in this southern sea.
