We have put together the best family-friendly destinations that are great to visit during those Spring days over Easter. Whether you are looking for adventure, history, cultural immersion or beach time, these countries offer something for every member of the family for an Easter holiday to remember.

1. Vietnam

Swap hot cross buns and Easter eggs for steaming bowls of Pho noodles and fresh spring rolls with a family trip to Vietnam over the Easter school holidays. With a great selection of family-friendly hotels and an efficient travel network it is a great spot for a two-week family holiday with oodles of adventure and relaxation to boot. Travel from North to South on our Coastal Odyssey itinerary, taking in the highlights of Vietnam with a junk boat cruise, whizzing through the streets of HCMC on a vespa sampling tasty food along the way and enjoy time at the beach as a family.

2. Costa Rica

If you are a family of adventurers then Costa Rica may be just the destination for you. March and April are the last two months of the dry season in Costa Rica and are a great time for an active holiday whilst taking in the sights of this varied and compact country. Plenty of sunshine and little rain should greet you and April even sees the whale season down on the Pacific coast. On our Family Adventure itinerary you can zipline through the cloud forest of Monteverde, white-water raft and relax on the sandy beaches in Santa Teresa whilst the kids play.

3. Thailand

An old favourite amongst families and with good reason. Plenty of family-friendly accommodation and activities, a variety of food options for every age and one big water fight in April for the Songkran Festival for Thai New Year to help you cool off! Explore Thailand on our Elephants, Jungle and Beach itinerary taking in the culture of the north, dense jungles and ending with some much-deserved beach time.

Family Friendly Destinations For The Easter Holidays Beyond Tourism

4. Belize & Guatemala

The combination of these Central American countries is a classic route for many travellers who want to see some alternative destinations to the big hitters like Brazil and Costa Rica. They are a great option for the two weeks of Easter holidays and have lots of variety to offer every age of traveller. March and April are great months to visit with generally dry and sunny conditions with little rain to spoil your adventures. Wander through colourful colonial towns in Guatemala, hike up volcanoes and explore ancient Mayan ruins. Relax on Belize’s white beaches and snorkel on coral teeming with fish.
