Spring break is one time-honored tradition among kids who are aching to spend their week-long recess from books and teachers!
Through the years, we have been entertained by movies who pay homage to this Spring Break holiday.
When you get down to plan your very own, what are your choices?
One thing’s for sure, make sure there’s sand and lots of sun!
Spring is a fitting welcome to more comfortable temperatures after a stint in the biting cold of winter.
For kids taking a break in university, it can only mean one thing–party 24-7!
So what are the hottest spring break destinations for the young and carefree?
1. Cancun in Mexico is top choice for North American kids, not solely due to its glorious beaches or water parks.
Its tourism actively promotes Cancun as a party destination!
Thus there are packages and deals which are suited to every budget; some even include shuttle service to clubs.
Apart from being a spring break option, this jewel in the Yucatan peninsula is also a top honeymoon spot because of its romantic ambiance.
Remember the popular flicks paying homage to exciting spring breaks in America?
Gone are those movies when all college kids trooped to Fort Lauderdale to let their hair down.
2. As restrictions were imposed during the late 80’s, the party moved on to Panama City.
Soon enough, the 27 miles of coastline with breathtaking sun-drenched beaches became the top spring break playground in Florida.
3. For a little bit of the exotic and trippy, Ibiza is hands down, the place to be!
The famous club, Privilege, fosters that come-one-come-all atmosphere hosting a capacity of 10,000 people every night.
This island, part of the Balearics in the Mediterranean, is the definitive rave destination.
Most of the big names in trance and techno spin their way to the finest clubs so expect nothing short of a showstopper when you pick Ibiza for a spring break.
4. The lone star state hosts one of the best spring breaks in South Padre Island.
Texas offers sun, surf, water sports, concerts and dolphin-watching for that all-American holiday.
South Padre has warm Gulf waters making it hard to tear anyone off the beaches!
It has an organised spring break program each year so be sure not to miss out on the fun, Texas-style.
5. Finally, the hip Jamaican culture is one reason why Montego Bay and Negril are included on this list.
This is what your itinerary would be like in and around Negril–sunset cruises, lounging around laidback beaches and diving off cliffs.
Nightlife in Montego Bay is best served at the Hip Strip, an area dotted with clubs and bars.
At daytime, excursions to the Dunn’s River Falls or to the reefs are worth spending, that is if you get tired of the beauty of your immediate surroundings!
