With so much variety when it comes to sightseeing around Cuba it can be difficult to decide what to pack, but thankfully due to the somewhat predictable nature of the weather that task can be made much easier.

Cuba features a tropical climate which means heat, humidity and rainfall, so while it may be a good idea to pack light, be sure to bring a mixture of beach wear or light clothing such as shorts and t-shirts for the hotter days, dress options for the mild evenings and one or two items of rain gear just in case a downpour heads your way.

It is recommended that any medicines you may require be purchased prior to travel as Cuba is not known for its wealth of pharmacies, so mosquito repellent and sunscreen should be brought with you.

Being located in the Caribbean Sea, Cuba is treated to a particularly tropical climate which generally consists of a hot temperature combined with regular bouts of rainfall and high levels of humidity.

Cuba’s weather tends to be split into two seasons; a dry season which stretches from November to April and a wet season that begins in May and ends in October.

The most popular time to visit Cuba would be any time during the dry season when the temperature and humidity are lower making the weather much more comfortable. Though the occasional downpour is inevitable, it’s less likely during the dry season as opposed to the wet season which potentially suffers bouts of storms.
