Weather Overview for Cayo Coco

Weather Overview

Cayo Coco Island, part of the Jardines del Rey archipelago off the northern coast of Cuba, is renowned as one of the most idyllic tropical holiday destinations in the world. Its sub-tropical climate, which translates into an average yearly temperature of 28°C with little seasonal variation, boasts warm, dry winters and hot, wet summers.

Much like in Mexico, with which it shares the same latitude, swimming in the crystal waters, diving among the reefs, sun baking on the pristine beaches and partaking in fun activities are enjoyable all year long. This is by far one of the least visited corners of Cuba, and still unperturbed by mass tourism. Cayo Coco is simply ideal for nature lovers and all those who prefer to get off the well-trodden tourist path. This island-haven is home to 11 fantastic all-inclusive resorts, each boasting and impressive array of fantastic activities, attractions and inclusions to suit all tastes, budgets and ages.

Whether you’re visiting during dry season (December to April) or wet season (May to November) you’ll always find plenty of fantastic things to see and do.

Winter 

Considered by many to be the ideal time to visit, winter boats daytime temperatures in the mid to high 20s and night-time lows of 16°C. This is often preferred to the summer months which can get unbearably hot and humid. At this time, you’ll enjoy an average of 7 hours of daily sunshine and beautiful average sea temperatures of about 25°C. Scuba diving is at its best in winter because the lack of rain and thunderstorms means you’ll enjoy perfectly calm waters and maximum visibility. You may still experience some rain during the dry months but showers are very few and far between and, usually, of very little consequence.

December is the busiest month of the year and it’s certainly not hard to understand why Europeans and North Americans would choose to spend their yearly vacations in this sublime haven. With averages of 23°C, highs of 28°C and lows of 18°C, swapping a cold and blustery Christmas Day for one spent perfecting a suntan on a divine beach, fits most people’s idea of perfection. January will see a drop of one or two degrees across the board yet an increase of an hour to the daily sunshine average. The increase of temperatures continues steadily over February, March and April, albeit slowly. The average rainfall will still impinge on only 6 days per month and the humidity will decrease from 80% in December to reach its lowest peak, of around 74%, by the end of April.

Summer 

If you are a lover of intense heat then you will certainly enjoy Cayo Coco in summer! Add the high temps to the intense humidity and regular thunderstorms and you may find the months of June, July, August and September a little harder to cope with. This is also hurricane season in Cuba, effectively ruling out scuba diving on most days. Yet despair not, as there are still countless things to do in Cayo Coco even when the weather refuses to co-operate.

May sees a significant increase in humidity and rainfall yet temps are still quite enjoyable, much like at the tail end of the west season, in October. With an average air temperature of 26°C, and sea temps of 28°C, enjoying the gorgeous beaches on clear days is absolute bliss in May. June sees a sharp increase in heat, with temps creeping up to 32°C and the rainfall reaching a maximum of 130mm over 12 days.

During this wet period of the year, the humidity can be arduous on even the most tropical of visitors. July and August boast similar conditions, with average temperatures reaching a peak of 28°C, highs of 33°C and lows of 23°C. If you opt for budget accommodation, do ensure that it comes with an air-conditioning unit! The rainfall in these two months will fall considerably, and you can expect beautifully dry days for at least half the duration of your stay.
