Easter is an exciting time to visit Latin America as it is celebrated heavily throughout. Not only that but the weather across much of Central America makes it the perfect time for escaping those infamous British showers.
For the best weather head to Central America or Cuba; holidays during this period will be rewarded with the driest, hottest days, making for the perfect time to relax on the region’s stunning beaches, explore the rainforests or head to the numerous archaeological sites that dot this diverse slither of land. If timed right, a trip to Belize will allow you to experience the enthralling Ruta Maya Canoe Race, and those heading to the southern part of the country may be fortunate enough to catch whale shark season.
When visiting Mexico, not only will the weather be perfect, but the ‘Semana Santa’ or Easter week celebrations will be well and truly underway. Witness hordes of locals follow a procession through Mexico City, re-enacting the final days of the life of Jesus Christ as he carried the large, wooden cross on his very own back. Other lavish celebrations can be seen in Cuzco, Peru- also well worth a visit during this time.
Those in search of an alternative beach destination should head to the Caribbean coast of Venezuela. The weather here remains hot and dry for much of the year, with Easter being no exception; and the pristine islands of the Los Roques archipelago make for the perfect island getaway.
The Galapagos is also right in the middle of its hot season, arguably the best time to head here for swimming and snorkelling as water temperatures are pleasantly warm. Spot sharks, sea turtles and manta rays as you bob along in the crystal clear waters.
The Easter and May Bank holiday is a fantastic time to travel and given that it is ”low season”, there’s still availability for this year! Please click here to take a look at our Imagine Travel Blog and get inspired by our holiday ideas for this period!
