Guardalavaca Weather February Averages, Cuba
What's the weather like in Guardalavaca in February
February sees temperatures on a daily average basis rising up to 22°C, just a little bit warmer than January and definitely getting on towards what you might call spring.
There is still a bit of milder weather to get through first, however, with temperatures ranging from average highs of 26°C to average lows of 17°C.
If you are feeling a little bit cold, the best policy might just be to go and jump in the sea. It will be warmer than the land temperature at a steady 26°C, so a bit of a swim will most definitely warm you up. 8 hours of sunshine beam down every day here in Guardalavaca, giving you plenty of time to explore as well as ensuring the area warm up very nicely.
The dry season is also here, with only one month seeing less rainfall than this one. An average of just 47mm will, covering 6 days, so you might actually find that you end up with a totally dry holiday if luck is on your side. In terms of comparing this resort to other potential locations in Cuba, you will find that just along the coast in Puerto Padre is a much drier climate. They only see 15mm of rain during this month over there, but you should bear in mind that this does not necessarily make it a better holiday destination. There are plenty of other factors to consider!
While you are here, it's important to remember the sun is still fierce. The climate here does not vary much year-round, so the summer temperatures are only a few degrees higher. That means that you should pack accordingly and be sure to top up on suntan lotion every few hours to avoid getting sunburn. Hats and sunglasses will also be a holiday essential at this time.

Fantastic food is served along with cocktails, and you can also arrange transport to and from your hotel at no extra charge.
The Patio-Parillada is a very small restaurant tucked out of the way, with tables set up on a patio area and in a small room.

The Restaurante Calle Cuba is easy to find, because it is located on the street of the same name! Here you can get a big lunch if you are hungry after exploring, or a quiet dinner unlike many restaurants in Cuba, there is no music playing, so you can enjoy some peace. Locals come here often, which is a mark of great Cuban food.
Things to do in Guardalavaca in February
February is of course a month for romance, and since the weather is not so bad either, it's a great time to go for a long stroll on the beach. Walk hand-in-hand across the white sands and dip your toes into the surf. It's a great way to experience Cuba, especially at night time when most other tourists have gone back to their hotels.
If you want to get cultural, how about Spanish lessons? Many hotels, such at the Brisas, will offer them as an optional part of your stay, and if not, you can find schools in the town. This is a great way to get more out of your stay as well, because you will have something new to take back with you. Even if you just take one lesson, it can be a lot of fun!
