Cuba is an everlasting summer! The climate is very stable, and the temperatures are mild throughout the year, so you can bathe in the sea all year round.
The hottest months are from June to September, the humidity is higher and can be overwhelming at times, so having a pool or beach nearby is really useful.
These months the most likely to rain in Cuba (from May to October). The rains can be intense at times, but don't last long. The sun will come out shortly, so you can carry out your scheduled activities and still visit best beaches and cays in Cuba.
This is also the hurricane season, which mainly covers the months of August, September and October. However, this does not mean that they always occur.
