Spring Break 2016: Cancun

Cancun is the Mecca of Spring Break. When you think Spring Break, you think Cancun. It has the perfect mix of incredible hotels, wild nightlife, stunning beaches and (very) relaxed drinking laws! It is truly the ultimate Spring Break destination.


Seriously, forget about the rest of Mexico. When it comes to the best nightlife and biggest parties there is only one winner: Cancun. The majority of clubs in Cancun have a cover charge which includes an open bar so it’s Pina Coladas all night long!

Although normally thought of as an American tradition, thousands of young people from across the World are heading to Cancun over their Spring Break. Cancun has the capacity to host the thousands of party goers, some clubs can hold up to 4,000 people. It has the biggest venues and attracts the biggest names. In previous years Cancun has seen the likes of 50 Cent, P Diddy and Fergie. WE GON’ PARTY LIKE IT’S YO’ BIRTHDAY!


So after you’ve sipped Bacardi like it’s yo’ Birthday – what better hangover cure than the beach! Cancun has over 14 miles of beaches. There are two types; the North side beaches with more tranquil waters and the East side beaches with crashing waves. The further East you go towards Hotel Zone, the more turquoise the color of the water is. Gorgeous.

During the day you can sleep off your hangover on a white sandy beach or take a refreshing dip in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. Most of the hotels in Hotel Zone are located on the beach for easy access. So roll out of bed, head for the sand, sip a Bloody Mary and you’ll have forgotten that hangover in no time! (maybe pack a couple of aspirin…)

Adrenaline Fueled

But it’s not just the bars and clubs in Cancun, there is so much more to experience. If you’re feeling up to an adventure and the hangover hasn’t quite hit, then check out the action-packed tours and day trips!

Why not visit Xcaret or Xel Ha in the heart of the Riviera Maya, Cancun. Try your hand at snorkeling, cliff-jumping, zip-lining or hike a jungle trail! After an active day, you’ll probably be needing a drink: so take a cruise on the “Caribbean Carnaval”  or book the “Party Hopper” tour. Go on, you’ve earned it.

So this year it’s all about Cancun. Why would you go anywhere else? See you in da club gettin’ tipsy. SPRING BREAK, SPRING BREAK, SPRING BREAK!!!
