Cuba has a semitropical climate with two distinct seasons: a rainy season from May to October, and a dry season from November to April.

Generally the weather in Cuba is sunny, hot and humid. The average minimum temperature is 70°F (21°C), and the average maximum temperature is 81°F (27°C). In summer (June to August) the heat can get uncomfortably intense, with temperatures reaching 100°F (38°C) and high humidity. The sea breezes tend to make conditions more pleasant on the coast.

The rainy season is also hurricane season in Cuba and runs from July to November, with September and October being the months most likely to experience serious tropical storms. Thankfully, Cuba has a very good public safety record when it comes to handling adverse weather conditions.
