Employing 30 years of solar radiation dataset from Camagüey Actinometric Station, the climatology of the Surface Albedo was determined for two solar disk state (Sun and Squared Sun). The obtained mean value for all period is 0.21 with a median of 0.209 and standard deviation of 0.0422. The WMO Guide to Climatological Practices was employed to determine this climatology. The dataset has been subjected to a meticulous quality control process, taking into accounts the criteria of Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN). The annual and multiannual means was established, as well as, the monthly and hourly mean values for the entire sample. The frequency distribution was determined for different combinations of active surface and their relation with the albedo values.
