What's the Weather like in Cayo Coco in February
Located on Cuba's northern coast, the island of Cayo Coco in February offers a delightful respite from the harsh European winter. The sub-tropical climate makes this an ideal hub for water-sport aficionados and lovers of the great outdoors.
The best time to visit Cuba is winter, which is when the temps are at their most comfortable. The additional bonus of little rain makes for ideal water-sport conditions as well as brilliant sun bathing times.
The weather in February is still chilly by Cuban standards and although you'll see locals rugged up, you may well wonder what the fuss is all about. The average temperature in February is 23°C, although highs of 28°C can be expected during the last two weeks of the month, as the winter cold subsides. Night-time lows of 17°C are quite consistent for the whole of February.
You can expect an average of 8 hours of sunshine each day and rainfall will still be minimal this month. Only 6 days in February will be marred by short showers and this, coupled with comfortable sea temperatures of 26°C, will make for fantastic scuba diving excursions.

Designed with the discerning adult crowd in mind (no-child policy), this resort is an ideal choice for honeymooning couples or anyone who wants to enjoy a quiet, opulent vacation in premium style. The resort is built around a saltwater lagoon home to a colony of pink flamingos and the lake-front bungalows built on stilts afford privacy and relaxation like nothing else you could imagine. Melia is the only property in Cayo Coco which offers over-water bungalows. The resort's private beach is pristine, albeit on the smaller side but if your priority is quality over quantity then you'll feel right at home. Melia offers a wide range of services, including its own diving centre, craft workshop, gym, mini-market, gift shop, car rental option and 24-hour medical assistance.

Cayo Coco Beach for February
There is not much you could not do at the beach if staying at Tryp Cayo Coco, as this resort is nestled snugly between a natural lagoon and long stretch of beautiful beach. If sailing, diving and snorkelling are your thing, then this is the beach where you may want to spend all your days.
Las Colorades is the name of Melia's private beach and it is one of the most sublime stretches of coast you'll find on Cayo Coco. The tranquil, pristine beach is only 2km from the coral reef and includes amenities such as lounge chairs, parasols, a beach BBQ, restaurant and beach bar. You can partake in fun games of beach volleyball and organise all your favourite water sports: kayaking, sailing, snorkelling, diving and pedaloe riding are all on offer.
Bars and Restaurants
Melia boasts 4 restaurants and 5 bars, all of excellent standard and offering different dining and drinking options. Del Sol is a buffet-only restaurant where the cuisine is themed nightly so you'll be spoilt for choice no matter how many times you dine here. Del Sol is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, whilst Las Caletas is an a-la-carte eatery open only for dinner. The international food served here is based on local seafood and the atmosphere, accompanied by the tunes of classical music, is sophisticated and utterly relaxing. For fine Italian dining don't miss La Terrazza, an exquisite restaurant which serves delectable Italian fusion fare alongside simply stunning ocean and garden views.
For fantastic sundowners, we suggest you head up to Carambola, a terraced bar overlooking the beautiful lagoon. Pool tables, gorgeous views and flowing cocktails make this by far the most popular choice at the resort.
If you're curious to try local specialties then we suggest you book a table at Tryp Cayo Coco's La Casita Cubana, considered by many to be one of the best Cuban-cuisine restaurants around. If you prefer to taste freshly caught seafood insetad, then make your reservations at Del Mar. For a fun night out, check out cabaret show at La Cueva de Jabali on Wednesday nights. The cabaret may not be totally out of this world but the venue, in a trendy underground cafe, is what makes a night here very unique indeed.

Trinidad is a UNESCO-listed town about 230km out of Cayo Coco, and makes for an excellent full-day excursion.

You can also visit the nearby waterfalls of Topes de Collantes and spend hours lost in the maze of the town's markets held in the old town centre.
