Optimum Climbing Times

Cuba can be hot, but it is not the sweltering, muggy sweat-box of Southeast Asia. Nowhere in Cuba is far from the moderating, gentle Northeast Trade Winds that cool the air and lower humidity. December through March are perfect. Chilly nights may occur, and a sweater or fleece is welcomed. Even a Jacket, depending on the year. October and November, still the tail end of the hurricane season, and April have proved pleasant for climbing. Summer is a rainy season, but due to the abundance of overhangs and north-facing walls, climbing is available all year.
