Hurricane season in Cuba starts in June and lasts till mid November. It is advisable to do the homework and avoid trips to Havana, Varadero or elsewhere in Cuba when a hurricane is approaching. When Hurricane Ike plowed through Havana and Varadero in early fall of 2008, the capital city and most of the rest of the island was without electricity for a week and there was a lot of mess in the streets from rubble and broken trees which are a typical aftermath of a hurricane. Some planes flying to and from Cuba would likely get canceled or rescheduled which may result in significant changes to your arrival and/or departure schedule.
Visiting Cuba in Hurricane Season
Once again, if you’re visiting Cuba anywhere between June and October, do your due diligence and check current weather conditions as well as any hurricane warnings and avoid all unnecessary travel if there are hurricanes expected. September and October are the worst when it comes to hurricanes. Any visit to Cuba during those months is a hit or miss. You will pay less than any other time of year as not many tourists travel to Cuba in hurricane season, but you’re risking a chance of not seeing much because of frequent rainy weather. Hurricane paths and times can be predicted quite well nowadays so just keep an eye on hurricane warnings for the area and avoid travel if unnecessary. However a careful combination of good timing and planning can result in great and vacation during hurricane season that ends up being inexpensive. Even in hurricane season there are sunny periods that offer enjoyable opportunities for vacations.
Cold Weather During Hurricane Season
Hurricanes sometimes bring along North American interior winds which unexpectedly change Cuba’s temperature to about 10°C (50°F) for a couple of days. This type of temperature is cold and can catch you unprepared as no one stocks up with heavy sweaters when travelling to tropical climates.
