The climate of Havana (Cuba)
Havana is the capital of Cuba. With its 2.2 million inhabitants it also is the largest city on the island. Havana is a beautiful city with an exciting character. This is not surprising in view of Havana’s history. Havana was founded in 1519. At first it was a robber’s den for pirates who made the Caribbean unsafe. Then it became a Spanish transit port for all kinds of goods among which where slaves. Havana also was a gambling paradise for Americans. This turbulent history has left its mark on Havana. Many beautiful 19th century and colonial buildings can still be found here. Nothing has defined its current charm so much as the 1959 Cuban Revolution. During this period Cuba became economically and socially isolated and had to fend for itself. Due to several embargos Cuba was no longer able to import car parts. American classic cars still roam the streetscape. However, they run on Lada engines and Trabant parts. When you walk through the streets this gives you the idea that time has stood still here since the 1950s. However, the economic restrictions don’t keep the Cubans from partying. Especially in the district of Vevado many music bars and cafés can be found where people dance passionately. Several beautiful old bars can still be visited. For instance, Bar el Floridita. This is the bar where Ernest Hemingway used to drink his Mojitos and Daiquiris. During a warm afternoon this is the perfect place to enjoy this beautiful city with a Daiquiri and a Cuban cigar.
Havana has a savannah climate. However, the climate here is strongly influenced by the sea. From June till November hurricanes may occur. However, they come and go very quickly. Hurricanes only cause problems for a few days and the Cubans are used to it anyway. During this period most precipitation can be expected as well. Temperatures in Cuba are 30 degrees Celsius on average. During the summer temperatures may even rise higher. However, the sea wind has a cooling effect. Temperatures during the winter are just below the average temperature. During the winter temperatures remain very pleasant and are ideal for long days on the beach.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
