What's the weather like in Havana in September

For many parts of the northern hemisphere the month of September signals the arrival of autumn and a drop in the average temperatures. Normally, holiday destinations are seeing the end of their tourism high as September ushers in this new season. However, in the Cuban capital of Havana, September simply means a continuation of high temperatures, a stifling amount of humidity, and the possibility of hurricanes hitting the city. The sub-tropical climate in Havana means this change of season practically goes unnoticed, as the only two seasons that matter are the dry season and wet season.

Many visitors choose to avoid the months of September and October in Havana, as this is the most likely time for a hurricane to hit the island of Cuba. However, at this time of year the Gulf of Mexico is very warm for wading and swimming and the hotel prices are at an all time low. Therefore, visitors should be aware of possible adverse weather and heed any warnings, but a holiday in Havana in September can also be characterised by sun-filled days without the high costs.


The summer temperatures in Havana are normally consistently hot, as proved by the average temperature landing at 27°C (81°F) for the months of JuneJuly and August. This same average temperature, 27°C (81°F), continues through the month of September. Similarly, midday throughout September can be uncomfortably hot, with an average high temperature of 31°C (88°F).

Due to dropping temperatures after sunset, the average low temperature throughout the month of September settles at 22°C (72°F). These cooler temperatures provide the perfect environment for sipping rum and coke or cold Bucanero near the oceanfront. The trade winds that blow through Havana provide some additional relief after a hot day.

Sea Temperature

Despite the rainy season and chance of a hurricane, the Gulf of Mexico remains warm, calm and swimmable throughout the month of September. The average sea temperature for September is 30°C (86°F).

Clouds and Rainfall

There can be a number of overcast and cloudy days during the month of September in Havana, in fact the month sees an average 13 rainy days throughout the month. Given that this time of year is known as the rainy season across the island, visitors should also expect some precipitation on their holiday. An average 70 mm of precipitation falls each September.

Sunshine Hours

However, what Havana lacks in temperate and dry climate during the month of September, it does make up for in hours of daily sunshine. Even considering the additional rain and humidity during this month, there is still an average 9 hours of daily sunshine in Havana.

Havana Hotels in September

Since 1997 the Cuban government has allowed residents of Havana and other Cuban cities to welcome tourists into their private homes. The culture of the casa particulares is not unlike bed and breakfasts and homestays around the world, but in some ways it is unique to Cuba. To stay at a casa particular while on holiday in Havana can be a unique way to experience the capital city and culture of Cuba.

During the low season of September many resorts and hotels suspend certain amenities and services or close entirely, and casa particulares become an even better guest option. Casa de Cuca located in the Miramar neighbourhood is a private home with 5 bedrooms and a lot of character. Well cared for, clean and spacious when the humidity of September rises, coming home to Casa de Cuca can be a relief.

In the central and cosmopolitan neighbourhood of Vedado, the casa particular Private rooms Mylena y Otto is a welcoming option. The owners, naturally Mylena and Otto, are visible and helpful, and they truly want to provide a wonderful guest experience. The rooms at Private Rooms Mylena y Otto are clean and comfortable, and one bedroom has a private terrace for cooling down on a hot September night.

Located in Old Havana, Casa de Pepe y Rafaela is a colourful place to call home while in Havana. The rooms are purposefully and carefully decorated, and as guests gather around the table for breakfast there is truly an air of family and friendship at this casa particular.

Havana Beaches for September

The stretch of sand closest to central Havana is known cumulatively as the Playas del Este. However, this nearly 10-kilometre long coastline is really divided into six small beaches, and each has a distinct atmosphere. Boca Ciega begins just east of the Río Itabo Estuary. This strip of sand is most popular with Cuban families and gay couples, but of course, all are welcome.

Bars and Restaurants

Paladar La Cocina de Lilliam is family owned and operated, a rarity in Havana. The head of household and chef, Lilliam Dominguez Palenzuela, brought to life her vision for a beautiful and welcoming restaurant back in 1995, when the Cuban government first allowed some private businesses to open. The exterior is inviting and the interior decorated with extensive attention to detail. An outdoor patio is the perfect place to end a humid September day.

Located in the heart of Old Havana, Esto No Es Un Café is an imaginative and interesting restaurant. The menu ranges from Cuban to French, and international artists who have made an impact in the art world over time inspire the food. The dishes are named after Pollack to Duchamp, and the food at this small café is as inspired as the men and women who influenced it. Esto No Es Un Café is open 12pm to 12 m, for lunch and dinner, daily.

In the residential suburb of Miramar, the Italian restaurant La Carboncita Paladar is quietly and steadily serving up some of Havana's best Italian food. There is a lot of patio seating at this mansion turned restaurant. The portion sizes are large, and the owner makes daily suggestions that certain regulars dutifully follow. However, the pizza is always tasty. So come, rest your tired walking feet and enjoy a meal to end your day in Havana.

Things to do in Havana in September

Visitors to Havana in September will enjoy lower hotel prices and discounts at attractions and tourist activities across the city; however it is also a month of high humidity and heat. Therefore, tourists who choose to explore Havana at this time of year will need to find some ways to get out of the sun. A stop at Catedral de San Cristobal de la Habana is recommended. Otherwise known as the Havana Cathedral, the church was constructed from 1748 through 1777 in a baroque style. For a minimal fee visitors can climb one of the churches towers for views over Havana.

First time and frequent visitors to Cuba cannot help but notice that the country is crazy for baseball. The American sport has continued to gain traction and support over the years in Cuba, and the country produces a number of talented players. Que Siempre Brille el Sol baseball tournament is held in the late September. There are a number of matches held during this tournament, and it is a great opportunity for visitors to see the fervour and support residents have for this past time. The atmosphere is very enjoyable and every one is partying hard.
