The Best Spring Break 2013 Destinations
Written by Dana Droppo Spring Break is just around the corner and we’ve rounded up the hottest (and snowiest) places on earth for you to jet off to this year.
Pack skiing and beach time into the same vacation! Granada is rich with cultural history, white sand beaches and an easy commute to the beautiful mountains of Sierra Nevada. The Spanish City has a ton of affordable hostels like The White Nest where you can get a cushy stay (and a free breakfast) for less than €20!
2. The Greek Islands
What better way to spend your spring vacation than laid out with 15 of your friends, occasionally dipping into the crystalline waters surrounding the Greek Islands? Just don’t forget to bring sunscreen; that Mediterranean sun packs some punch.
3. Eco-lodge in Costa Rica
Costa Rica is home to some of the world’s most beautiful sustainable communities. Eco-lodges like Punta Mona and Casca Verde are the perfect retreats for anyone interested in cooking and eating fresh food right out of a garden, and learning to surf in the off-hours.
Climb Table Mountain by day and seek out one of the amazing dance clubs this South African city is famous for by night. At the end of it all you can retreat to some of the most unique and colorful hostels on the planet.
Exploring New York City means that you can stroll Central Park, visit one of the city’s world-famous museums, eat a $2 hotdog and still have time to hit Soho for shopping. The best part? You can do it without breaking the bank. Boutique hotels like the Jane and the Ace are cheap and often have great DJs spinning in-house.
Find some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico tucked away in Tulum. With a vibrant culture and acres of beachfront space, it’s the perfect place to hole up in a Cabana for the week catching rays and zzz’s.
7. Croatia Spring Break Festival
Croatia Spring Break Festival’s motto is: “PARTY HARD.” This 9-day extravaganza is not for the faint of heart. 24-hour techno-fueled parties will keep you dancing til you drop, all vacation long.
8. Panama Beach City, FL
Panama Beach City is one of the most popular spring break destinations in the world. Geared towards students, it’s the perfect destination to connect with thousands of other spring-breakers.
