Averages for Havana in March
March is one of the best times to visit Cuba.
The weather should be warm with plenty of sunshine and the chances of rainfall are low.
An average of 8 hours sunshine can be expected a day in March in Havana.
The average rainfall expected occurs over 4 days and is on average 44 mm (similar to that expected in February).
The temperature shows little variation between the day and the night time in Havana in March, so light, summer clothes will be sufficient.
Make sure that you take with you a decent sun cream and mosquito repellent. Do not rely on being able to buy it whilst you are in Havana, as the products are not always reliable.
If you wish to go for a swim in the sea in March, the temperatures will be the same as those expected in January and February, at 25oC or 77oF, so you can enjoy a lovely dip in warm water.
It may also provide a refreshing break from the sunshine and warmth outside.
There are also a couple of festivals held in Havana in March.
One of these is the Havana Drum Festival, which is celebrated with great enthusiasm and, as you can imagine, involves a lot of drumming at many high profile venues in Havana. These include the Amadeo Roldan Theatre (Teatro Amadeo Roldan).
March also hosts the International Festival of Electroacoustic Music, which is one of the most important spring celebrations in the Cuban Capital. The event has a huge number of participants from all over and the locals turn out in huge numbers to cheer the local artist and DJ's.
