Cuba has an east-west extension of 10.1 degrees of longitude. Given the country's location in Caribbean, this corresponds to about 1000 kilometers. With this still relatively small extension, the course of the sun is only slightly different at various positions in the country. The position of the sun in the west of the country differs from that in the east by only about 41 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 41 minutes later in the west than in the east.
