Weather Hazards

Hurricane season runs from June until the end of November for the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Cuba, just like all islands in the Caribbean, is vulnerable to strong winds and storms, and it is prone to hurricanes during hurricane season. It is recommended that tourists use caution when travelling to the beach during the months of June through November, as it can be quite dangerous and the island could experience major catastrophes that may require evacuations. The most dangerous months are September and October when hurricanes are more prone to pass through Cuba.

Every year Playa Pesquero experiences strong currents and winds due to the hurricane season. These high winds especially affect the coastal area, which can be flooded significantly.

The area of Holguin, including Playa Pesquero, Guardalavaca, Pinar del Rio, Vinales and Isla de la Juventud, suffered significant damage by hurricanes Sandy, Ike and Gustav. The resorts in Playa Pesquero and Guardalavaca were so damaged by these monster hurricanes that major renovations and refurbishments had to be made.

One of the most recent destructive storms and hurricanes to hit Playa Pesquero was Hurricane Sandy, which produced enormous waves of up to 9 meters of height and caused flooding all through the coast of Playa Pesquero and the surrounding areas. In 2008, Playa Pesquero also saw the rage of Hurricane Ike, which caused $7.3 billion dollars worth of damage. Hurricane Ike has been the costliest hurricane in the history of Cuba.

Although Playa Pesquero was greatly affected by this disaster, the area has recovered almost completely from the effects of Ike and the latest Hurricane Sandy. Little damage is shown currently in Playa Pesquero thanks to the efforts of the government and resorts, which have done a splendid job reconstructing the area and cleaning up after these natural disasters. However, the wrath of hurricanes should not be taken lightly, and the area should be avoided during hurricane season for safety precautions.
