Don’t Miss Places to Visit While in Mexico on Spring Break
Every year college students from the US gather to celebrate their flourishing adulthood and to party way beyond the time the sun goes down. Beaches across the country are packed with students. So, it makes sense that you would want to do something a little more exotic. No doubt that is why you have planned your spring break trip to Mexico. So, these are the “don’t miss” places to visit while you are there:
- Merida– Merida is well known for its distinctive language and cuisine. And, it is the historic Yucatán capital city. Plus, you will have the chance to experience a good deal of Mayan culture as it is readily integrated into the city’s own culture.
- Puerto Vallarta– Spring break brings a wealth of American college students here each year. The city has self-proclaimed it’s standing as the “Friendliest City in the World.” Its nightlife is very well known and there are tons of beachfront hotels to choose from when you are booking your trip.
- Campeche- Located on the Yucatán Peninsula’s western flank, Campeche is chock full of colonial Spanish and Mayan history. This is Mexico’s only walled city and the jungles that surround it are rife with ancient ruins from the Mayans. Learn more about the rich history of Campeche.
- Tulum- One of the best beaches in Mexico is over-looked by the Mayan ruins of Tulum. And, if you are really into yoga, this is a serious yoga destination.
- Playa del Carmen– The main attraction of Playa del Carmen is its locally made craft boutiques, tequila shops, and restaurants all located on Fifth Avenue. And, then, of course, there’s the beach which is only four blocks away.
- Cancun- The reputation for spring break parties in Cancun goes back decades. But, there are so many luscious beachfront resorts, that you don’t have to succumb to the party life while there.
- Isla Mujeres– Hop on a boat from Cancun to arrive at Isla Mujeres. It’s especially well-loved by those more eco-conscious thanks to its sea turtle conservation center, and the MUSA underwater sculpture museum. Click this to find out interesting information about MUSA.
