Situated in the Caribbean, just beneath the tropic of Cancer lies the island of Cuba. Weather on the island is sub tropical, offering warm days throughout the year.


Being an archipelago of islands, Cuba has slightly different weather patterns across its lands with the biggest difference seen across the country in the figures for average rainfall in each area.

Throughout the year the weather in Cuba benefits an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and in the winter months, the average is only 4 degrees less than that.

Humidity is high across the country with an average of 80% and the lowest UV index (sunlight exposure) is 6, which is a high rating on the index and for most of the summer months, the index is at the highest rating of 11.

The east enjoys warmer weather than the west and the coast sees less difference between day and night temperatures than inland.

Water temperatures are pretty warm, averaging 25 degrees Celsius which puts Cuba in the hurricane belt between June and November. Although hurricanes do not hit Cuba on an annual basis, it certainly receives its share of storms and bad weather.

The two distinct seasons in the Cuban weather are wet and dry seasons. Wet season starts in May and continues to October and from April until November is the Cuban dry season.


Three quarters of the rain falls in Cuba during the wet season and typically the rain showers start fast and rain heavily until the clouds have released their load and the rain stops as quickly as it began.

Humidity is higher in the wet season at uncomfortable levels which is why peak tourist season is the dry season, with less chance of rain and bearable levels of humidity, along with warm sunshiny days.
