Top Spring Break Destinations: Student Edition

Posted on: January 22nd, 2014 by paul

After five months of studying it’s finally time for a week away from the grind of student life. With the freezing cold temperatures this year’s winter has brought, it’s a good time to get away from it all and head someplace warm. But where?

Here are this year’s top spring break destinations:

Cancun, Mexico

An annual spring break staple, Cancun is a magnet for party-goers from all over North America. Expect the hotels and beaches surrounding the Cancun area to be jammed with coeds looking to blow off some steam from a stressful college life. Expect parties to last into the early hours of the morning. Unlike Canada, American spring break is spread across several months which means that a trip to Cancun during any of the winter months will surely entail some spring break overlap. Due to the high demand this time of year, hotels are generally crowded and vacationers tend to pay a premium compared to other beach destinations. Sit back, grab a cerveza and tequila, and enjoy.

Dominican Republic

Punta Cana and Puerto Plata are two great substitutes to spending spring break in Mexico. Although they beaches are not comparable to the ones filled with drunken coeds in Cancun, the resorts in these two destinations are a great place to spend an all inclusive vacation with friends. When traveling in groups it’s always nice not to worry about paying for drinks or food. A trip to the Dominican Republic will allow groups to enjoy the sun and the sand without being bothered by as many immature travelers as in Cancun.


Cuba is the budget spring break destination. Places like Varadero and Havana offer a chance for travelers to learn about the important history of Cuba in addition to having fun on the beach. All inclusive options are also available here but keep in mind that the food in Cuba is generally lower quality than what is found in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, or other places in the Caribbean.

Las Vegas

Want to find out if the money spent on those math courses is paying off? Put those stats skills to use in Las Vegas for a few nights. A week-long trip is out of the question because a students’ budget won’t last long in this high flying town. Expect table service at the night clubs to cost in the ballpark of $3000-$4000 for a group of 10 each night.
