Winter Sun Family Holidays in Latin America

With much of Latin American close to the Equator, there’s little temperature variation across the year, making this a good choice for a winter sun holiday with the kids. 

That said, one of Mexico’s two high seasons lasts from December to April, and prices reflect this. Meanwhile, inland Mexico is quite chilly from November to February. November is an interesting time to take kids to Mexico because of the Day of the Dead celebrations (2nd), while cities get extra lively at Easter with Semana Santa (Holy Week) celebrations. See our special offers and latest deals on family activity resorts in Mexico with Club Med.

Brazil is another year-round family holiday destination, with temperatures always pleasant enough for the beach, although New Year’s Eve and Carnival (Easter) can be very expensive. Costa Rica has fairly constant temperatures, with Dec–April the driest time. Peru has minor seasonal variations – at or near sea level it can get hot, while in the mountains temperatures are mild in the daytime and much cooler at night.

Argentina (with the exception of the Andes and Patagonia) is best visited in our wintertime if you like it hot and humid – Buenos Aires and the Pampas are cold in our summertime.
