Hottest Places to go for Spring Break

Tessa Spurlock, Reporter

For many students, spring break is the perfect opportunity to let off some steam before the stress of finals and graduation. But for the destination to be spring break-worthy, it has to be affordable, accessible and popular among the teens and adults.

 

Cancun Mexico:

Cancun is best-known for its white sand beaches, near-perfect weather, and bright blue waters, is the Acapulco of Mexico’s Gulf Coast. Cancun, best-known for its white sand beaches, near-perfect weather, and bright blue waters, is the Acapulco of Mexico’s Gulf Coast.

 

Miami Beach FL.:

Miami Beach caters to the moneyed crowd. At upscale shopping centers like Lincoln Road Mall and renowned spas, agua Spa at the Delano South Beach is a particular favorite. Residents and visitors spend boat loads for decadent experiences and comfortable clothing. Night owls shell out hundreds on drinks at dance clubs and bars.

 

Bahamas:

The roughly 700 islands that make up the Bahamas lure millions of visitors to their white-washed shores, duty-free shops, fishing and scuba diving excursions and luxurious accommodations each year. Families that flock here tend to indulge in the diversions of Atlantis, Paradise Island and other mega resorts, but this diverse island chain also offers a range of activities away from the hotel area.

 

Puerto Rico:

Determining Puerto Rico’s charm is a no-brainer. Less than a three-hour flight from Miami, this island is a U.S. territory.  So when you’re shopping in San Juan, you can pay for your souvenirs with American bills. But don’t be mistaken, this isn’t quite a home away from home. Puerto Rico has both 20-foot waves for surfers and calm, clear waters for families.
