Book your carefree sailing holiday
Cuba is one of those places that is on many people’s travel bucket list. We love the Caribbean vibe and rich culture that Cuba offers, not to mention its stunning natural beauty and beaches to explore. If you seek to enjoy Cuba in a not so typical tourist way, we invite you to take a sailing trip here. The best time to sail is mid-autumn to mid-spring since the summer months often experience more humid temperatures in this climate. Cuba is located just south of the United States, east of Mexico, and north of South-America. Cuba is mainly known for the Castro regime, big cigars, and old cars. There are only a few people who also know Cuba as the perfect sailing destination. The largest island in the Caribbean has a welcoming educated population, countless pristine beaches, mountainous rain forests, and thriving artistic centers. This fascinating country, wrapped in a time warp from a 50-year-old Socialist revolution, is steeped in history.
With its favorably warm climate year-round, steady winds, unique natural beauty, and open-minded, friendly people, Cuba goes beyond any sailor’s dreams. The island also has a reliable nautical infrastructure, which is receiving well-aimed support from the government. About 20 marinas and nautical centers all around Cuba gladly welcome yachts under all flags and offer all conceivable services.
The warm climate maintains even temperatures throughout the year, ranging from 25°C to 31°C during the day and 16°C to 22°C at night. The hot climate keeps the clear water's temperature warm year-round, ranging from 22°C to 31°C.
March, April, October, and November are the months with the nicest weather and least rain. June through the end of November is considered hurricane season and generally the rainier months. The high season in Cuba is July and August and the peak season is December, January, and February. We hope you have a great time on your trip once you’ve booked a chartered yacht. If you sail during the offseason in the fall and spring, you will usually find lower rates. No matter how or where you plan your sailing trip, once you get there, take the time to kick up your feet and enjoy the ocean breeze.
Having a skipper on your chartered boat is a better option than getting a bareboat yacht here. Caribbean waters can be choppy at times, and a skipper will know how to navigate around the coral reefs surrounding the island. Be sure to prepare the boat with all the necessary supplies before you sail around this tropical paradise.
