Enjoy the Cuban beaches all year round

When is the weather at its best?

It’s more comfortable from November through to April, because the temperatures are warm but not stifling and there’s less chance of rain. This is also the perfect time to get away from the cold British winter!


How hot does Cuba get in the summer?

The summer temperature is around 30C during the day and around 23C at night. It can be much more humid and uncomfortable.

Events and Festivals

Cubans are passionate about music and dance so although the winter months are generally quieter in Cuba there is still plenty of activities to entertain you. The Annual Festival Internacional de Ballet takes place in October, and the acclaimed Festival International de Jazz (International Jazz Festival) take place in February.

For movie buffs the Festival del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano (Cuban’s film festival) is a must-see event.

Don’t let the dark, icy winters get you down, come and experience our beautiful Cuba weather instead.
