    Cayo Coco Weather for March 2019

    What's the Weather like in Cayo Coco in March 

    March is a wonderful time to visit Cayo Coco; some would say the very best. As average temperatures start to slowly rise to 24°C, the water temps will also rise to a very comfortable 26°C, making swimming snorkelling and other water-based activities very enjoyable. Although you'll experience lows of 18°C (at night only, throughout the month) you will also bask in the sun with highs of 29°C.

    Whilst the temperatures in Cuba are quite consistent all year long, March is arguably the most unpredictable month of all. Expect cool evenings at all times so always pack a sweater and long pants. The expected highs can indeed appear at any time of the month, yet in March you can expect cooling off-shore breezes so it's wise to be prepared. Basking in the Cayo Coco sun with cocktail in hand is wonderful, although in March you may need a long-sleeve top even during the day. On the upside, the heat and humidity discomfort index is quite low at this time of year; so although you may wish for it to be slightly warmer, you won't have to deal with the consequential mugginess.

    Despite the still low average temperatures, you can expect 9 hours of sunshine each day and only minimal average rainfall. Only 32mm of rain will fall on Cayo Coco in March, over a period of 6 days and this will usually occur during the first two weeks of the month. Rains usually occur in the late afternoon and they are the primary cause for sudden drops in temps.

    Don't be complacent about sunburn in March, as the relatively low temps may lull you into a false sense of security. The UV index this month is very high, so don't forget to pack sunscreen and apply liberally during the day.

    Cayo Coco Beach in March

    Playa Flamenco is one of the most striking beaches on Cayo Coco and boasts its own coral reef literally a step off its shores. Bring your own snorkelling mask and you could spend endless days tickling fish just metres from your lounge chair. The rocky shore can be tedious so if you think you'll have issues with this pack a pair of plastic water shoes as well, although note that this only applies to the end of the beach where coral is present. The beach at Hotel Playa Coco is likewise lovely and kept in pristine condition by the dedicated staff. The turquoise waters are a snorkeler's dream and soft, white sand an absolute sight to behold.

    If you want to venture out of the resort hop on the tour bus and spend a day soaking the rays on glorious Playa Pilar, rated as one of the most exceptional beaches in the Caribbean thanks to its transparent, turquoise waters. This stellar beach is located about an hour away from the resort and stands, at 15m above sea level, as the highest dune in Cuba!  No matter where you stand, it seems to go on forever.

    Bars and Restaurants 

    You certainly won't be left wanting for anything when staying at Memories Flamenco, with the resort's 24hr food & drink policy making it near impossible not to overindulge. Shape Fen is an Asian-infusion restaurant, which manages to transport diners to south-east Asia in one single, delightful bite; while Calalú offers arguably the best Creole specialties in the whole peninsula.

    Those who prefer more of an international mix of flavours can head to Vista Hermosa where an international buffet is offered for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For sublime beachside grill dining, head to Punta Alegre instead, and if you like your cocktails to keep flowing, then enjoy sundowners by the beach at Altamirna, or head to La Parranda for a fabulous night of drinking and dancing.

    Hotel Playa Coco is particularly revered for the variety of cuisines offered in its restaurants, which include Italian (at Venecia), Japanese (at Tokio), Cuban (at Jucaro), seafood (at Santiago) and international fusion at Trinidad. Tokio has a bit of a cult following at Cayo Coco so we suggest you book a table here as soon as you book your stay, to avoid disappointment. The night entertainment is also superb, with a piano bar, salsa lessons and disco keeping things fun and vibrant every night.
