Costa Rica

Fancy a road trip with the family for Christmas? Costa Rica might just be perfect for you. We recommend the Pacific coast during December for the best weather. Self-drive is also convenient for travelling at your own pace and for the ease of packing up to go to your next stop.

Kids playing on the beach in Cuba


If you’re looking for an authentic, charming Christmas then Cuba should tick all the boxes. We recommend Cuba to families with children over 8 years old due to the limited family facilities available throughout the country. Self drive, again, is super easy and we recommend booking as advance as possible as cars get booked up very quickly!

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a great country to travel with the family at Christmas, with the South West and central areas best places to visit. Relax on Negombo’s beaches or the beautiful Tangalle in the South where you  can spot tropical fish in the small surrounding reefs. Christmas on the beach anyone?

Thailand has been a popular Christmas spot for British families for many years now, so it’s very well set up for celebrating our favourite holiday (or getting away from the consumer norms!). Expect gala dinners at rustic beach resorts and good weather over most of the country. We recommend the South West or Central beaches, otherwise why not spend Christmas in Chiang Mai looking after ophaned elephants?

December time is a great time to visit Vietnam as you will find loads of areas quieter than in the summer months. The weather is generally warm and dry all around to keep the younger ones happy on the beach. Why not kayaking through the peaceful Bai Tu Long Bay and learning what a Christmas in Asia is all about?
