A little more laid-back but no less fun, Jamaica is quickly becoming a Spring Break hot spot. Known for its reggae grooves and fabulous nightlife, nobody masters ‘island time’ like the Jamaicans.

If you’re looking to stay away from the Spring Break cliché but still get some sun & surf, consider Costa Rica. Combine a few days at one of the famous surf beaches with a few more days ziplining through the rainforest canopy.


4. The Florida Keys

If your ideal holiday has more to do with mountains and snow rather than sun and surf, Lake Tahoe is the perfect choice. With terrific skiing and snowboarding it also provides for great dining and a decent nightlife. We recommend: California Highlights tour with Contiki.
