Guardalavaca Weather March Averages, Cuba

    Guardalavaca Weather for March 2023

    What's the weather like in Guardalavaca in March

    This month, get ready for a dry holiday! March just happens to be the driest month of the year, which is fantastic if you are looking to have a holiday were you explore the great outdoors.


    An average of only 46mm of rain will fall, taking just 5 days to do so, leaving the other 21 with clear and sunny skies.

    Sunshine Hours

    Just how sunny, you ask? An average of 8 hours of sunshine a day will warm the resort of Guardalavaca, bringing temperatures to a daily average of 23°C. Highs of 27°C and lows of 18°C occur, so the weather will stay warm no matter what happens. Of course, this is not the hottest month of the year that comes in June and onwards but it's still a very decent climate. There is little change here between summer and winter, so you can enjoy yourself no matter when you visit.

    Sea Temperature

    Keep an eye on the forecast: so long as rain is not predicted, you are likely to want to take a dip in the sea. Taking a swim will be a very pleasant experience in waters that stay around an average temperature of 26°C. Cuba stays very warm and enjoyable all year round, which is why you are likely to find tourists visiting the beaches no matter when you travel; looking further down the coast, at resorts such as Baracoa, we can see averages that are only slightly warmer and a little drier. Each part of the country has its own charms, so do not make the mistake of choosing where you visit based just on the climate: the nightlife, restaurants, and hotels as well as the beaches available in each area will have a big impact.


    With higher temperatures, but not so high as to leave you sweating, and lower rainfall, this has to be the ideal month for getting out and exploring the local area. Enjoy the great outdoors and take a walk around the town to discover local customs.

    Guardalavaca Hotels in March

    One thing that will strike you about the Villa Islazul Don Lino is how many people go back there year on year. It offers unique stone and wood-built villas which will serve as your home during your holiday, and which have easy access to a pool area. The most stunning views onto the beach can be found here, with nature running free right up to the white sands.

    You can also go a little wilder with the Villa Pinares De Mayari. Panoramic views are offered from wooden villas, all of which are nestled in lush greenery a little way back from the shore. A slight hill means you can take in views of the surrounding area before you decide where to go each day.

    The Casa de Yodalis Trasobares is a house that is open for you to stay in, with your host providing breakfast daily as well as a great insight into the local life in Cuba. You will find it in the nearby town of Holguin, offering the chance to nip into the centre for shopping or just head back to the beach as it suits you. This is great for March, when they weather may tempt you to the sea or just out for a wander.

    Guardalavaca Beaches for March

    There are a few great options if you want to hit the beach, but with the sea at an average temperature of 26°C, if you want to enjoy that somewhere a little less crowded, Playa Covarrubias is a good choice. This stretch of beach is over 5 kilometres long, and though you may have to drive there, it is definitely worth a visit. The nearby resort of Las Tunas offers shopping and other entertainment if you need to make a stop before heading back to the hotel.

    Bars and Restaurants

    The Bahia del Sol offers a great way to taste traditional local food: everything is served on platters, so that your dining party can sample a little of every dish and share what they like. The prices here are very good, including seafood and other local delicacies.

    It may be hidden away out of view, but if you manage to find the Ranchon Los Almedros, you will be rewarded. You can enjoy large portions of lobster, kebabs, chickens, fried plantains, and plenty more local dishes here. You will be able to find it easily if you take a tour with a taxi driver, as many of them like to drop visitors off here for a great experience.

    At La Parrillada de la Musica you will find seafood served in a great atmosphere, with live music from a band who will play for you. Also right before your eyes is the chef, who will prepare everything under your watchful gaze for a very low price. Be sure to enjoy a cocktail or two at this growing local hotspot.

    Things to do in Guardalavaca in March

    If you want to learn how to dive and have never done so before, you should need to head to the Eagle Ray Scuba Diving Center. Located right on the beach and with easy access to the coral reefs under the waves, the instructors here will tell you everything that you need to know.

    Scuba diving is a really great way to spend some time, and with the water temperature warmer in March than the average air temperature, it's a good way to enjoy the heat as well. If you are already qualified and have your own equipment, feel free to have at it.
