Now that America's frosty relationship with Cuba is thawing, many adventurous travelers are anticipating traversing unseen territory. Those hoping to visit the island will want to familiarize themselves with Cuba's climate before packing for a trip.

The World Travel Guide describes Cuba's climate
as subtropical and hot year-round. Humidity is also high, falling somewhere between 75 percent and 95 percent depending on the season. From January to April, for example, less rain falls and the temperature is therefore cooler. Nights can be chilly, so packing appropriately requires being prepared for whatever the weather brings.

1. Shoes for Every Purpose
With Cuba's warm climate, you'll likely spend a lot of time outdoors in the heat. Trip Advisor recommends packing several footwear options, including sandals and flip-flops. Depending on what kind of outdoor activities you want to partake in, you might also want to bring sea shoes, so you can safely enjoy spending time at the beach. Insight Cuba suggests also bringing a sturdy pair of shoes appropriate for walking for extended periods or navigating some of the country's more rugged areas of land.

2. Lightweight Clothing to Beat the Heat
If you plan to be out and about during your stay in Cuba, you'll need to pack plenty of warm weather clothing. Trip Advisor recommends muscle shirts, tank tops, shorts, and sundresses.

3. A Raincoat – Just in Case
It's not all sweltering heat and blazing sun in Cuba. In fact, as the World Travel Guide notes, the rainy season typically lasts from May to October, while the hurricane season lasts from July to November. The stormiest time of year is in October and November. That's why Insight Cuba includes a raincoat on its list of top 10 things to bring to the country no matter when you visit.

4. Dressy Attire for a Night Out
Despite Cuba's often sultry climate, residents typically dress up when they hit the town, Trip Advisor noted. If you plan to dine out or visit one of the country's many nightclubs, throw in dress shoes and a dress shirt, slacks, or dress suitable for an evening out.
