Latin America will celebrate Semana Santa, or Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday on Sunday, April 14, and continuing through Easter on Sunday, April 21. Significant disruptions are expected, including increased demand for lodging and transportation, crowded conditions, delays, and limited government and commercial services. Residents in Latin America frequently travel on vacation or to visit family during this week and many businesses may have limited hours or be fully closed. Residual disruptions are likely to persist into the following week.
Individuals in or traveling to Latin America are advised to maintain flexible itineraries, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate crowded conditions, transportation, business and government disruptions, and increased demand for lodging and transport.
