With Spring Break just around the corner, university students are trading their class syllabus for sunglasses, for a well-deserved mental break from college life.
This month’s Epic Getaway series will be dedicated to these Spring Break hotspots. Of course, there are those who do not necessarily fancy the party scene. I mean, Spring Break is about taking a break, right?
For this, we offer both party hotspots, as well as alternative escapes within the same destination. After all, anyone enduring the academic gauntlet ought to have a little fun!
Party, Party – Cancun Mexico
This is a shoo-in for Spring Breakers. While Cancun entails lots of tranquil beaches, the strip is transformed to ‘Spring Break Mecca,’ during mid-March. With its relaxed drinking laws and infinite bars (many of which, include open bar privileges with the cover charge), Cancun offers the perfect recipe for non-stop partying and a wild time. Alternatively, with such a wide variety of luxury resorts available along a beautiful stretch of beach, Cancun is also the remedy for your standard Spring Break hangover.
For a little R&R – Tulum Mexico
While it’s in close proximity to Cancun, the historic city of Tulum is safeguarded from the lively party atmosphere. This is a place for those looking to unwind, relax, and recharge. Relaxation can be found in the city’s trifecta: the sea, its town centre, and the historic Mayan Ruins. These three places are within close reach of each other, giving Spring Breakers plenty of things to do during their short stay.
