When to go to Playa Pesquero

The largest of the Caribbean islands offers year-round sunshine. Warm temperatures and clear blue skies in December to May make it a fantastic destination for last minute winter getaways. This is the island's driest season. And it's also the most popular time of year to visit, so prices may be a little higher.

If you can't wait for summer to start at home, spring is a great time to head to Cuba. You can often find cheaper deals during this time of year. The wet season runs from August to October when coastal resorts might experience hurricanes or stormy weather. The east coast really starts to sizzle around July and August although temperatures are consistently hot throughout the year. You'll be met with 25-30°C heat in any given month.
