Best Spring Break Destinations for Students 2018

With spring break around the corner, it is a week where young people go somewhere hot, with the mind of no rules, and nobody will recognize you there. A week where you can do anything you would not do back home, but it is all for fun because we deserve this time off before the stressful time of the school year (finals). I have done research on best spring break destinations for students and wanted to share places where it is relatively cheap for our budget and most importantly all the fun we are looking for.

This is a compiled list of inside and outside of United States by top places to go.

Here are the cheapest and best spring break destinations for students:

1. Cancun, Mexico

This wouldn’t be a complete list without listing Cancun. Current exchange rate for US dollar to Mexican pesos is around 18.50 which is in our favor. Look for deals that are all-inclusive in pesos. This is the place known for college students during our spring break time off, packed with day parties, music festivals, and hundreds of motels available in the city to make the experience to the fullest. Best part of all, you need some bathing suits and sunglasses because that is all you will be needing if you are going to Cancun, Mexico. So, start shopping now for the tickets because being one of the most popular destination, the prices tend to go up rather quickly. Reserve now, click here to begin.

Something to know: not 21 yet? (you know what I mean) well it doesn’t matter in Mexico.

2. Daytona, Florida 

Florida during spring break is another place that college students for their spring break. With Florida hitting 80 degree average, tons of cheap hotels, and so much to experience.
