Whatever date the Easter holidays are you should get pretty decent weather in Sabah. Sarawak is more off the beaten track if your family really likes to have an adventure but the weather can be a bit risky around this time of year. Orangutans don’t like rain so you may run a risk of not seeing them! We would say stick to the East where you can spot plenty of wildlife and enjoy the beaches.

You’ll find Easter nice and cool across Cuba but still lovely and sunny, so it’s a great time to visit. Flights can be pricey, so try to book well in advance to keep the cost down for the family and you will find it’s a popular time to go so it can be busy! Booking in advance will also help you get your Cuban hire car, which we recommend as the most flexible way to travel with a family!

Costa Rica

The great thing about travelling to Costa Rica in Easter is the weather is reasonably good everywhere, so you aren’t limited to certain areas. This will help with your dream family trip! Get the whole family cooking on the Caribbean coast, or let the kids’ imaginations wander through the cloud forests of Monteverde.

Late March to April is still a good time to visit India and it has a little shorter flight time than some of the other South East Asian countries. The South of the country will be less humid as the North can start getting quite hot so we recommend sticking to Kerala and the National Parks in this area, but don’t worry, all should keep the young ones well occupied of course!

Surfing lesson


With April bringing the drier season across the country, this can be an excellent month to go to avoid the crowds but still be able to enjoy the fun-filled activities and immersive experiences the country offers. Why not have the young ones try our surfing lesson on a southern Bali beach which supports other children in the local community!

During Easter you can travel to all areas of Malaysia as the weather is good, which makes it a great month to visit! This means you can enjoy the beaches on Langkawi in the North West which have family friendly hotels with lots of children’s facilities. If you like to get out of your comfort zone, and enjoy simple charm, the more rustic beaches on the East side of Malaysia are still perfect to visit too!

Taking the family to Thailand in Easter can be a breeze. The weather is generally good across the country and our top family friendly activities are all accessible. Why not stay in a floating raft house on the River Kwai, or sit back let the family observe rescued elephants at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai?
