Planning a spring break getaway is a great way to cap off a year’s worth of hitting the books. Having long been the iconic rite of passage for high school and college students, spring break is the time to relax, unwind, and have fun.
When planning your much-needed spring break vacation, make sure it’s going to be one full of activities, excitement, and memories because you’ll probably want to draw inspiration from the time you spent on spring break when you’re cramming for those final exams!
The following are three of the top vacation destinations for spring break:
- Mexico: Hot spots such as Cancun and Riviera Maya have perfected the recipe for a great spring break with pristine beaches and a variety of discos and bars that feature everything from modern dance to salsa music. They keep the fun going after dark.
- Puerto Rico: Known for its mix of beautiful beaches and cosmopolitan atmosphere, but also for its affordability, Puerto Rico is a fantastic option for spring break fun. Adding to its attractiveness are the affordable cruise deals and vacations for this beautiful Caribbean island, which are designed with college students in mind. Some of the must-sees include San Juan, which offers a nice array of nightlife; the nearby Carolina Beach; and Condado Beach.
- Jamaica: What vacation would be complete without a laid-back atmosphere, gorgeous beaches, and the tropical fare and reggae music that makes Jamaica the coolest island in the Caribbean? And what better way to travel there than aboard one of the many Princess cruises that sail there regularly? But relaxation is not all this island is known for. In fact, some of the best snorkeling, scuba diving, and other water sports can be done here, not to mention skydiving and other thrill-seeking activities.
