January weather in Cuba?

I am looking for a website or somebody with some knowledge about how warm it would be in January in Cuba. I know there is a website out there that tells you the temperature for previous years, months, days for different locations.

I just want to know if it would be worth booking a family vacation in Cuba in January 2009??

I want hot enough weather where I can go in the ocean, on the beach and be hot!!!

We were there this year from Jan.12-20. We were in Havana for the first four days and for two of them it rained but the other two it was about 28 degrees. The last four days we were in Varadero and it was minimum 30 degrees for the entire time. Actually, my husband decided not to wear sunscreen and he ended up getting literally burned to a crisp, lol! What's warm enough for some people may not be warm enough for others though and it also depends on what kind of vacation you want to have. If you are just wanting to lay on the beach and relax at the resort then really warm weather is probably better to have. For me personally, I can't just sit on a beach and do nothing (we only did that one day out of eight)as I love to sightsee and such so the weather was absolutely perfect for us with it not being too hot to get out and do things. So I guess if you're looking for a hot, hot, hot vacation you may want to think about a later month....hope this helps and have a great vacation!

We have been to Varadero many times in January. The weather has always been good. The pools were refreshing as well as the ocean. There was always people swimming and the beachs were full.

We just came back from Varadero 4 days ago. If you want hot then go in July. The pools and the ocean were warm. Very hard to keep cool. Almost every afternoon we spent an hour or so in our air conditioned room. It was our only reprieve.

Now don't take me wrong because I'm not complaining of the heat. I would go back in a second, but I've never experienced anything like it. It didn't take long to sweat once we left the room.

Book your vacation because Cuba is great anytime of the year.

One word,


I have seen hot sunny weather and cool, windy rainy weather. Try staying on the islands south cost if possible. Cayo Largo's weather may be a little better than Varadero's during the winter months.
