The weather in Cuba tends to be hot and humid throughout the year, with some months being hotter than others. Â The temperature rarely drops below 25 degrees C (77 degrees F). Â The northeastern trade winds can moderate the heat somewhat, but there is very little respite from the humidity which can reach 96% in the middle of summer.
Cuba has a rainy season that begins in May and continues through October, and a dry season that begins in November and continues through April. Â The coolest days are between January and April (Cuba's "winter"), although it never gets really cold. Â The maximum rain falls between May and October with sudden tropical showers seen between May and July. Â From late August to November is the countryâ€™s hurricane season when tropical storms are quite common.
Overall, the weather is perfect for a holiday with at least 330 days of bright sunshine guaranteed every year. Â If you would rather avoid the humidity, choose the months between December and April for your medical tourism vacation. Â The weather is cooler, and humidity levels are markedly low.
Best Times to Visit
The coolest months of the Cuban calendar, not surprisingly, are also the busiest as far as tourist activity goes. Â The months of July and August also see a lot of holiday makers pouring into the country. Â For a quieter, more peaceful medical tourism holiday, visit between May and July. Â Avoid visiting between September and November for your medical tourism holiday, when the possibility of being caught in a tropical storm can be quite high. Â This is the unofficial off-season, and hotel prices can drop by as much as 25%. Â Some hotels choose this period to undertake renovations and repairs, closing them off for days. Â
