Climate & Weather

Varadero has a moderate subtropical climate with an average of 330 days of sunshine per year. There are 2 seasons: the DRY SEASON from November to April (which is also the busiest tourist season) and the WET SEASON from May to October.

Cuba is located on the southwestern periphery of the North Atlantic high atmospheric pressure zone; therefore its climate is influenced by the northeast trade winds in the winter and by east-northeast winds in the summer. Average annual temperatures do not fluctuate as much as rainfall does, making Varadero a warm place to visit any time of year.

Because Varadero is located on the northern coast of Cuba there's a greater risk of an occasional cold front (frente frio) between December and February when temperatures can sometimes dip to the 60s degrees (16-20 C) during evenings and nights, and the low-70s F (20-22 C) during the day. but these "cold" fronts never last very long, usually less than 2 days.

Hottest months are between June and September but trade winds and marine breezes help to keep things tolerable when the heat and humidity rise. Cubans usually take their holidays in July and August, so beaches may be more crowded at this time of year, especially around the downtown area.

September-October is the peak of the hurricane season and also the cheapest time to travel. A serious hurricane does not come every year, but when it does it can cause severe flooding, damages and ordered evacuations.

The best time to travel to Varadero is between November and April (after the rains of the wet season and before the hot and sticky discomfort of the summer months). Personally we find that March, April and November are particularly pleasant for their hot temperatures (day and evening) but without being "too" hot and humid (as from May to October), without the risk of cold fronts (as from December to February), and with little rain (dry season).

Weather CubaVisit our website www.weathercuba.net
to learn more about the climate and view the weather forecast for every tourist pole and some major Cuban cities.

NOTE: You should never take too seriously the weather forecast for tropical destinations, such as the Caribbean, because the climate is unstable therefore very hard to predict, especially during the wet season (May to October) when rain is forecasted almost daily. It may indeed rain a little each day, but most often as a short tropical downpour (usually in late afternoon or at night), it rarely rains for several hours straight.
