Cuba sizzles under strong winter sun

To escape a nasty New Brunswick winter, I visited Cuba (Feb 3-10) for some fun in the sun.

Temperatures at the beach resort of Varadero were well above normal during my stay with daytime maximums reaching 30 C or higher on six days and warm overnight lows from 17 C to 22 C.

Normal highs and lows for early February are 26 C and 18 C respectively.

The most comfortable times were early mornings and late afternoons as I sought shade under a palapa with a cold drink during the midday sun.

Winter is traditionally the dry season on the island with only a couple hours of heavy rain recorded late one evening.
