When Is the Best Time

Best time during the dry season from November to April, but this time is also the peak season. Shoulder season May and June is worth a try and less crowded. Showers may occur, more often in the night or at the morning.

Location and Tips

Cayo Largo del Sur
Cuba

Cayo Largo is a year-round destination. The advantage of the dry season it is less hot and fewer mosquitos are around. We travelled to Cayo Largo in June and got already eaten up in the airport. However, our stay at Cayo Largo was fantastic, snorkeling outstanding. We even discovered two huge sharks and a stingray but unfortunately, my brother borrowed the GoPro for diving. Don't miss the full-day catamaran tour. It was the highlight of our vacation. We got delicious crayfish for lunch and spent some additional time in a beautiful lagoon.
