Latin America Beach Holidays are not often the first thing travellers consider when travelling to this part of the world. The region is famous for the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon Jungle, treks through the Andes and Patagonia, and famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Machu Picchu in Peru, or Christ the Redeemer in Brazil. Culture, music, culinary delights, cobblestone streets in colonial towns and iconic national parks are some of the experiences that first come to mind.
However, the stunning coastlines, remote beaches, white sand, turquoise waters and unique marine wildlife are often overlooked when considering destinations for travels through Latin America.
Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Brazil all have fantastic beaches that can be enjoyed on their own or combined with the cultural, historical and wildlife experiences they are more commonly known for. We’ve listed some of our favourite beach experiences below.
