Cuba Travel Guide: What to Do in Cuba

Best Time to Go to Cuba

Cuba is warm and sunny all year round, but you’ll likely see more rain during hurricane season, which runs from June through November. (September and October are the wettest months.) Tourism peaks in the steamy months of July and August; come over the winter instead (aside from Christmas) for pleasant weather and fewer crowds.

The only way most Americans are able to visit Cuba is with an organized “people-to-people” tour, which means that most expenses will be included and paid up front. Be flexible with your dates and shop around with various companies in order to get the best deal on your tour.
