About Us

Our story really started in 1989 when Nigel Hunt started trading as Peak Rock. 10 years later, after a trip to Cuba, he fell in love with the pearl of the Caribbean. Later, realising that the access to the Cuban literature and maps was limited, he decided to create CubaDirecto, a website that can be a meeting point for all Cuba aficionados but also tourists in need of information’s books about their future travel or like him, who fell in love and want to know more about this beautiful country. Over the years we have managed to develop our range of books but we also have created a map section and lately our Cuban coffee selection.
Since January 2018, we are proud to say our little Sole Trader company became Nigel Hunt UK Limited. Poco a poco, we are growing and we secretly hope to be a leader in the market. But no worries, our main priority at CubaDirecto, will always remain you and the Cuban products we can offer.

Located in Battersea Park, London, we are now a bunch of people passionate with Cuba. Every day we are doing our best to find books related to the beauty and culture of this particular island. We have also interest in maps in order to provide the best options to help you find your way through the "calle" and "autopista" of Cuba.
We also try to develop other product from “The Pearl of the Caribbean”. Because everybody likes a nice cup of coffee with a nice book, nothing is better than sipping some Cuban caffeine while reading about its history.
Every order we received, we perceive it as a way to help you to prepare your travel or to share our passion with you. We like to think we are not only an online store, but a companion for your travel. You can pay us a visit whenever you feel like, you will be happily welcome. Moreover, we are sharing our office with Cubaism, a travel agency and tour operator specialised in one country. Can you guess which one? Of Course Cuba. So maybe these guys will be able to make Cuba in your bucket list!

If you wish to get a bit more from Cuba, do not hesitate to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. We are sharing the latest news from the island but also offers, pictures and much more.
