Thunderstorm Forecast

My family and I were just about to book a last minute trip to Varadero for this Saturday. I looked at the forecast and it shows thunderstorms (no sun) for the entire week. We have been before and there were short thunderstorms but never seen a forecast like this before.

Do we risk it and go? It would be with two small children so my fear is we will be stuck inside a hotel room for a week!

Predictions by Windy.com shows some rain... If you click on Varadero on the map, you will see a forecast. But usually, you have a little bit of rain and then the sun comes again.

While no forecast is perfect, this site is pretty good I have found in the past for travels to Varadeo.

That being said, I would take my chances...as mentioned above most weather sites show some kind of thundershowers but it maybe for 5 mins or 5 hrs...still shouldn't ruin the day or vacation!

Where would do I rather be in rain - home. The mosquitoes here are brutal. Kept us hostage in our room all day yesterday.

Are they daily spraying there? I don't remember the last time I saw a mosquito in Cuba...at any part of the country or time of year.....home is always worse in my experiences!

Its pouring rain there now. Somebody in a group that I'm in, on Facebook. just posted pictures. Their hotel lobby is flooded. Streets are pretty flooded as well. Looks like rain come down very hard and very fast so not enough time to drain properly.
