Beach holidays in Latin America
Latin America has beaches to suit all tastes from isolated, private hideaways to large resorts with excellent facilities and nightlife. Venezuela's Caribbean coast is a wonderful stretch of white, sandy beach from Morrocoy in the west, to Mochima in the east, with pristine islands of Los Roques just a short flight off the coast. You could beach hop along the entire coast of Brazil (Atlantic) staying in pousadas or luxury resorts. Uruguay has the famous, lively resort of Punta del Este, but also some smaller, quieter beach spots further along the coast. Central America has plenty of sandy beaches - both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts of Mexico have a choice of boutique hotels or large resorts with long stretches of beach. Costa Rica has a Caribbean coast or a much more developed (and longer!) Pacific coast and the Bay Islands of Honduras and both the mainland and the Cayes in Belize have warm seas and are excellent for diving.
South America: all year round (but Punta del Este and southern Brazil from November to April only). Central America is best avoided from September and October as it is the rainy season. Christmas is busy almost everywhere so book early.
