Cuba climate overview

Situated at the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico to the south of Florida and The Bahamas, Cuba is both the largest and the most northerly of the Caribbean islands. Up to the late 1950's it was a popular tourist destination especially for visitors from the United States.

With the Communist Revolution in 1959 that all came to an end. It was only in the 1990's after the collapse of the former Soviet Union that Cuba opened its doors once again to foreigners, but US citizens still face some restrictions on free travel to Cuba imposed by their own government.

The main island has three mountain chains, which support thick rainforest as well as cliffs, gorges, and caves; this beautiful landscape remains largely unspoilt. The remainder is mostly flat or with low hills. These lowlands are highly cultivated with extensive plantations of sugar, tobacco and coffee, as well as cattle pastures.

Coastal areas have stunning beaches as well as rugged shoreline. The beaches at Varadero to the east of Havana are probably the best known. Deserted island settings can also be found on many of the 4,200 coral cays and islets around the main island such as on Cayo Coco in the north and Cayo Largo in the west.

Cuba's main cities tend to be atmospheric and colourful with many magnificent Spanish colonial buildings in Havana, Trinidad, and Santiago de Cuba, the latter centred around a deepwater harbour with a dramatic mountain backdrop.

The tropical climate has a winter dry season running from November to April - a few showers are likely over the western tip of the island, but the east remains predominantly dry and slightly warmer than the west being that bit further south.

The rainy summer season lasts from May to October with thunderstorms a distinct possibility. Daytime temperatures show some seasonal variation, being slightly cooler in the dry season, however sea temperatures rarely fall below 25°C at any time.

Cuba is prone to hurricanes from July to October and occasional earthquakes have been known.
