Where’s Hot in March ?
March is a popular time for family holidays, so early booking is essential. However, if you are yet to find your dream destination, don’t worry. We’ve got a whole host of hot countries that are perfect for visiting during March or the Easter break.
Top 5 Hottest Destinations in March
Countries in the Caribbean and Asia enjoy their best weather during March, where temperatures are around 30°C and humidity is relatively low. After March, however, the summer wet season approaches, so be careful with your dates.
1. St Lucia
From the saw-toothed peaks which skirt the island, to the white powdered beaches of Anse Chastanet and Marigot Bay, St Lucia is an ideal option for visitors heading to the Caribbean in March. Swim with shoals of squid at Anse Piton or fly through the rainforest canopy on the Tet Paul Nature Trail – all whilst enjoying highs of around 30°C.
While Jamaica enjoys gorgeous year-round weather, March offers some of the best sunshine. For the best of the coast, head to Doctor’s Cave in Montego Bay. Known for its pristine sands and crystal-clear waters, this secluded beach is paradise personified.
Head to Cuba in March where you can enjoy pleasant 29°C temperatures alongside cool, north-easterly winds. This is the month where Cuba is at its most peaceful, and when Playa Paraiso, in Cayo Largo, is most popular. Voted the world’s third best beach, this is a bona fide tropical paradise set with colourful coral reefs and immaculate sands – here you will even find flamingos and iguanas lounging alongside tourists.
4. Playa del Carmen
A palm-lined coastal town on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Playa del Carmen’s climate rarely dips below 30°C during March. With guaranteed sunshine expected most days, visitors should make the journey to Xcaret Park. This theme park offers everything from swimming with dolphins, to all-inclusive hotels. When it’s time to cool down, there’s also an on-site spa to treat yourself to.
5. Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka enjoys warm weather during March, making this a popular time for tourists. If you prefer to go off the beaten track during your stay, however, why not take to one of Sri Lank’s famous safari tours? Yala Park in the south-east of the island is one of the most celebrated, with leopards, elephants, crocodiles and exotic birds on show.
