Cuba Weather

by Vishal Kumar

High humidity and hot temperatures make the weather in Cuba at times pleasant but also tropical humid. It is warm to hot all year round and invites to bathe at average water temperatures of 27 degrees.

The Weather in Cuba is largely dependent upon Cuba’s geographic location. Being a massive aggregate of sub-tropical islands, the weather conditions are never too harsh except for the occasional hurricane attacks in the monsoon season.

The geographic coordinates of Cuba are 21 30 N and 80 00W and occupy a total land area of 110,860 sq km. The Cuban islands mostly experience the Trade winds. The average temperature fluctuates between 20 Degree Celsius and 35 degrees Celcius with an average of 25 degrees Celsius. At such comfortable temperature standards, the Cuban islands are no doubt a haven for beach holiday destinations.

The islands of Cuba enjoy the optimum temperature limits, but it is the coastal regions that are better in terms of temperature stability. Even the coastal water temperates of Cuba do not rise above 25-degree centigrade.

The reports on the weather in Cuba show the following major hurricane attacks:

Name of Cyclone Date Area Affected Wind Speed
Cyclone of 5 days 13th to 17th of October 1910 Pinar del Río, La Habana, and the Island of Youth 183 km/hr
Hurricane of 1924 18th to 19th of October,1924 Pinar del Río and Island of Youth 250 km/hr
Cyclone of 1926 20th October 1926 Island of Youth, La Habana, Pinar del Río and Matanzas 196 km/hr
Hurricane Of Santa Cruz del Sur 1932 9 th September, 1932 Camagüey,Ciego de Ávila andLas Tunas 240 km/hr


The hurricanes mark an eerie yet exciting feature of the Weather of Cuba. Needless to say, the aftermath of these hurricanes cost both life and property. In order to challenge further Hurricane ruins, the government had passed a Measure System for Civil Defense of the country. Though Hurricane attacks are not too frequent, they can be monstrous if they do arrive. So if you are holidaying in Cuba during the rains, make sure to check out in advance with the weather forecast station of Cuba.
