Ah, Spring break! Fun in the sun, guys and girls in their bathing suits enjoying the warm weather and everything else that comes with a wild party in the tropics. It’s a college student’s dream come true. Bikini contests and drinking games are everywhere!. What fun it would be to be young again and relive the unbridled, wild abandon of being on vacation with all of my best friends. For the lucky college students that are currently on Spring Break of packing to leave, you are probably going to one of these sunny destinations, rated the best by many online sources:
- Cancun, Mexico
- Panama City, Fl
- South Beach/Miami, FL
- Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
- Acapulco, Mexico
- Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
- Las Vegas – What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? Yes, unless you wind up in a video for Girls Gone Wild.
In the past, places like Fort Lauderdale and Daytona Beach were the prime destinations for spring breakers. However, foreign destinations like the Bahamas, Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic are now the most popular with college students for three important reasons: 1. It is inexpensive and the package deals can’t be beat. 2. The weather is pristine this time of year, and 3. The legal drinking age is 18. Yes, drinking the underlying theme regardless of the activity. You drink on the beach. You drink at the hotel. You drink at the nightclub. We don’t need to say it but we will anyway – if you drink please do so responsibly.
Happy spring break! Don’t forget your protection, and by that we mean your sunscreen!
