Choose a dry season from December to April as the best time visit Cuba. January and February is ideal time for sightseeing but it could get too cold for beach vacationers. The winter weather is terrific, but the stay is a bit pricey, so make your reservation months in advance. With an increasing likelihood of rain, Cuba gets less touristic and more affordable from April through June. So if you've always wondered how tobacco harvest looks like, that's your chance! Mind that Easter holidays are an exception with crowds filling the streets. Carnival Santiago de Cuba and school holidays make hot July the busiest period. During the summer, heat is almost intolerable, so don't forget to stay hydrated. Another good tip is to avoid the hurricane season from August to early November. Well, Monarch butterflies don't mind the risk, so autumn is a good time for wintessing their mass migration.
