SCUBA diving is always great in the summer, the water’s warm and the jellyfish are gone. There are great diving spots all over Cuba, with healthy reefs undisturbed by human activity.
BEACH! BEACH! BEACH! Any beach in Cuba is hard to beat on any hot summer day, most places in Cuba are not more than a couple of hours drive from a good beach, kick-back and enjoy the sea and sun! Cuba’s national baseball league starts the second week of August, and there is one team per Cuban province, so regardless of where you are on the island there should be a game nearby. The first phase of the Cuban National Baseball Series runs through the first week of October.
