Easter in Latin America?

Ask our Experts

We are two women in our 60s who want to visit Latin America for two weeks leaving the UK over Easter weekend, but we haven't even made up our mind which country to visit. Definitely Spanish-speaking with a mixture of colonial, ancient culture and snorkeling preferably. Being such a short trip, we're worried about altitude sickness.

Asked by M B

Antigua, Guatemala has a week-long celebration over Easter (known as Semana Santa). The city is a colonial gem and can be combined with market towns in the north of the country and beaches just over the border in Belize.

For somewhere a bit different, the combination of Nicaragua and El Salvador is fascinating – Nicaragua has volcanoes , white sand beaches and is very reasonably priced and El Salvador has a beautiful colonial town called Suchitoto which will be less busy than Antigua but the celebrations will be just as lively.
