Cayo Coco Weather July Averages, Cuba
What's the Weather like in Cayo Coco in July
July is in the height of the Cuban summer and not considered the absolutely ideal month to visit Cayo Coco, one of its finest yet less-known holidaying spots. The heat continues to rise to uncomfortable highs at times, humidity can get close to 90% and chances of intense thunderstorms are also rather high.
Although hurricanes are much more likely to occur between August and October, you'll experience a definite rise in strong winds, which can actually help keep the heat at bay. On the flip side, however, this is by far the cheapest time to travel to Cayo Coco and you can score some unbelievable deals on both flights and accommodation. Moreover, whilst the storms may indeed be intense, they are usually isolated and scattered, leaving you with simply superb weather for the rest of the day.
In July you'll experience average temperatures of 28°C, with highs of 33°C during the day and lows of 23°C at night. This is not only the hottest month of the year, but also the most consistent, so you'll feel almost no fluctuation in temperature throughout the entire month. To be honest, the heat is not the most uncomfortable part of travelling to Cayo Coco in July, but rather it's the humidity, which can get a little overwhelming. Make sure your accommodation choice has well-functioning air-conditioning and you'll be certain of a good night's rest.
Rainfall can be considerable in July, with an average of 78mm of rain pouring over 12 days. The best part of July, of course, is that you'll still enjoy 10 hours of daily sunshine and average sea temps of 29°C, so if it's fun in the sun and surf that you're craving, you'll definitely find plenty of gorgeous hours in the day to indulge in your favourite water activities.
Cayo Coco Hotels in July
Run by the respected Melia Group, Tryp Cayo Coco is one of the more expensive and luxurious resorts in Cayo Coco and ideal for families. Not only will your benefit from great savings on this excellent accommodation in July, but you can be sure that your kids will be kept entertained even during rainy periods. The kid's club offers one of the most comprehensive itineraries for active bubs, and the swimming pools, fitness club, restaurants and bars will keep parents just as happy and entertained.
Another great option for families is the Sol Cayo Coco resort, which also boasts a first-rate kid's club (called Club Cubamigos) as well as a fun mini-golf course and dedicated play area. This is by far one of the biggest resorts in Cayo Coco and is home to two amazing private beaches as well as a wide selection of restaurants and bars. At Sol you'll also find a revered beauty spa and an in-house tour agency, which can organise scuba diving, sailing and fishing trips for you whole family.
Cayo Coco Beach for July
Cayo Coco is home to a collection of spectacular beaches and, although most have private sections reserved for their respective resorts, all have a public area which you are free to visit. Some, like the above-mentioned Playa Pilar, are outstanding and revered for their impressive shores and crystal clear waters, and others, like the beaches of the Memories Flamenco Beach Resort are beloved for being, quite literally, right ON the coral reef. If you're an avid snorkeler then choose to stay at this unparalleled resort and you could dash in and out of the reef in mere minutes, in between July storms of course! Don't forget to pack your water shoes as the coral can be quite sharp.
Bars and Restaurants
It may seem difficult, at first, to enjoy an authentic Cuban meal outside of resort grounds, yet if you know where to look, you'll find a few hidden local treasures deserving of a visit. Head to the public beach section of Playa Flamenco and grab a table at Ranchon Playa Flamenco a superb little eatery run by a friendly family and serving delectable, freshly caught shrimps and lobsters. This small and rather unassuming place is a fantastic spot to enjoy a long, lazy lunch by the beach, away from the sanitised scene of the all-inclusive resorts.
You'll also find a similar ranchon by Playa Pilar, often considered the most extraordinary beach on Cayo Coco. Right by the shores of its sparkling, white beach is where you can enjoy an equally sumptuous meal of local seafood and other authentic Cuban specialties. You'll find Pilar at the western end of Cayo Guillermo, and you can reach it by hopping on the tourist bus, which runs the route between all the resorts. The bus ride can take over an hour, yet considering the beach itself is one of the island's main attractions, spending an entire day sun baking, lunching and swimming is one of the best things you could dream of doing here.
Things to do in Cayo Coco in July
Cayo Coco is devoid of any settlement outside of the all-inclusive resorts, which means that your chances for souvenir shopping are somewhat limited to the few market stalls set up in some of the larger resorts. However, as the Cuban government is increasing its support of local business enterprises, you'll notice quite a few spots, outside of resorts, where local arts and craft makers sell their beautiful wares. As these fantastic little flea markets pop up sporadically in different places, ask your resort guest info desk for the exact location of markets when you first arrive. Use the convenient hop-on-hop-off bus and you'll no doubt find quite a few stalls plying the route of the bus. Leather hand-made goods are particularly well made and make for great presents. Please do note that the best and cheapest place to buy cigars and rum is the airport duty-free store, so best to buy those on your way home.
Fishing aficionados could have their days filled with fantastic trips in and around Cayo Coco, although in July most trips are organised only in the morning, as the afternoons tend to get a little stormy. You could book an all-inclusive deep-sea trip for the Cayo Coco Marina, from where you'll be guided on an amazing underwater adventure. If you're lucky enough, you may even catch a barracuda, marlin, dorado or tuna fish. This is arguably the most expensive fishing option in Cayo Coco. Alternatively you could simply hop on one of your resort's catamarans, rent some fishing gear and set off the shores of your hotel beach. Many tourists have been known to catch whopping mackerels and groupers this way.
