5 Best Spring Break Destinations

Spring break is right around the corner and like most people, we’re already thinking about what to do with that weeklong vacation. We’ve rounded up the top spring break destinations and we’re sharing them with you so that deciding where to go is a little easier this year.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Puerto Vallarta may be considered one of the more sophisticated locales in Mexico, but it’s become a popular choice for spring breakers over the years. PV offers all-inclusive resorts, a ton of unique excursions, and a vibrant culture unlike any other spring break destination. With what’s considered to be the best strip of bars along the Malecon, weekly foam parties, and multiple mega-clubs, PV is a popular choice for college students looking for a getaway.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

With relatively inexpensive flights and plenty of lodging options, ranging from hotels to Airbnb to family-owned inns, San Juan is a great option for spring break. The island offers plenty of recreational activities from snorkeling to distillery tours to nighttime kayaking and more. Not only will you have a great trip, away from the typical spring break scene, you’ll be helping Puerto Rico continue to rebuild by spending dollars and supporting local businesses.

South Padre Island, Texas

South Padre hosts one big Texas-sized spring break party every year. With four miles of beaches, dance contests, giveaways, and a host of clubs and bars, South Padre has become a hub of spring break activity. If you don’t want to worry about booking hotels and buying tickets on your own, some local organizations offer all-inclusive spring break packages, giving you more time to focus on the fun.

Panama City Beach, Florida

PCB is the “Spring Break Capital of the World” and students flock there every March to enjoy a week of parties on the beach. It’s home to Club La Vela, the biggest nightclub in the world, and 27 miles of beaches for you to enjoy. If you’re looking for the ultimate spring break experience, look no further than PCB.

San Diego, California

If you’re looking for a slower spring break but still want to enjoy the sunshine on the beach, San Diego is the top destination. Home to one of the best zoos in the world, and a variety of outdoor activities, San Diego offers something for everyone. Disneyland and Legoland are just short drives north in Anaheim and Carlsbad, respectively. We recommend that you rent a car and hit Route 101 for a scenic drive but make sure to stop and watch the sunset over Crystal Pier.

If you’re on a budget, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on spring break. Book early to save money on things like hotel or airfare; pack everything you need to avoid last minute purchases; and look into all-inclusive options. If you’re traveling to Mexico and want to make sure you’ve got all your bases covered, consider getting travel insurance before you go.
