Latin American Easter destinations

Easter falls on a different date every year but always either at the end of March or during April.

In many Latin American countries, Easter falls in a middle season – in the period between a rainy season and a dry season. The change from one season to another is also known as the “shoulder season”.

As the majority of Latin Americans are Catholics, Easter is a very special time of the year, which is celebrated with pomp and circumstance. This gives rise to many festive and unique cultural experiences.
