1. Cancun


Consistently ranked as one of the top party destinations in North America, Cancun features rather reasonable overnight accommodations, beautiful nice beaches, golf resorts and plenty of nightlife. For the celebrity in you, MTV’S Spring Break headquarters are located at the Oasis in Cancun.

2. Miami Beach

If exclusivity is what you’re after, Miami Beach should be the It-place for your spring break fun. Nightclubs and bars pack the colorful streets and encourage nightowls to stay out all night. By day, the long stretches of beautiful sand and clear waters are nice places to work on your tan and to recover from the previous evening’s festivities.

3. South Padre Island

Luxuriously affordable resorts and gorgeous beaches await at this Texas hotspot. During the day, enjoy deep-sea fishing, parasailing, hiking, scuba diving, golfing or simply lazing on the soft white sand beach and gear up for buzzing nightlife and celebrity run-ins at night.

4. Puerto Rico

Known as the “Island of Enchantment,” Puerto Rico during the day pristine waters host plenty of activities like rainforest hiking or scuba diving for active students; in the evenings, the city comes to life.

5. Puerto Vallarta

Perfect that tan and explore serene beaches, mountains and hidden coves by day. At night, happy hours kick off the night and visiting students stay out until the wee hours of the morning in dance clubs and partying on the beaches.

6. Bahamas

A classic spring break destination, the Bahamas offer casinos, nightclubs and bars sunup, sundown. Nassau and Paradise Island are particularly popular Spring Break spots.
