The weather

The Cuban climate is predominantly mastered by trade winds during the whole year.

Cuba is located on the Northern Caribbean limit and on the southern limit of the Gulf of Mexico.

During the winter season, mainly covering from December to March, the Cuban northern coastline is reached by the so- called "cold fronts" or Northern winds, which may occasionally cause some instability during two or three days in a row. Due to this, navigation alternatives are provided to boatmen so as to grant them protection from small keys and coral reefs during their trip.

The hurricane season starts June 1st up to November 30th. Proper and accurate weather forecast information is permanently broadcast during this season, and visitors are well and timely informed on the safety measures to be taken in proximity of one of these natural phenomena. Cuban authorities give special attention to prevention tasks in view of possible atmospheric phenomena, with a predominant guarantee to both national citizens as well as foreign visitors, for economic and commercial interests.

In winter time temperatures range from 17 to 30 Celsius degrees, and in summertime they may rise from 22 to 33 Celsius degrees, depending on geographical location as well as on daytime or nighttime schedule.

As initially stated, predominant winds blow in from the East (trade winds) ranging from 10 to 30 kilometers an hour, maintaining the needed stability which allows for a safe and confortable navigation.

As opposed to other tropical regions, Cuba does not show a fixed raining season pattern, so rains can sometimes be abundant in wintertime, though not so intense as they are in Costa Rica, Panama and Venezuela.
