Enjoy Spring Break Without Typical Spring Breakers

March 13th, 2013 | By admin | Posted in Adult Only Resorts, All Inclusive Travel | Leave a comment

By the time February, March and even April roll around, most Northerners are sick and tired of the cold, raw and snowy weather and would rather be dipping their toes in warm, Caribbean waters than shoveling yet another pile of snow. College students get a week off during the prime time when winter blues tend to hit the hardest – March. However, if you're no longer in school, you can still enjoy a vacation to a tropical paradise during this time of year.

If you're looking for a relaxing vacation in the sun this season, you may be trying to avoid the partying and raucous activities of the 20-somethings enjoying their school vacation. Even though spring breakers will be infiltrating many popular vacation destinations, there are a few ways you can get around them to enjoy luxury vacations at the same time. 

Know which destinations are popular
Before you can avoid spring breakers, it's important to note which destinations they're going to flock to, therefore we advise you consult a travel concierge professional such as Beach Bum Vacations. Many college students prefer to stay in the United States, heading to destinations like Florida and Las Vegas. Other classic tropical vacation destinations such as cruises & Cancun, Mexico, are popular, as are spots in the Caribbean like St. Thomas and Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Seek adult only vacation spots
Although you may still want to choose some of these vacation hotspots in Mexico, the Caribbean and Hawaii, ask your travel concierge for options that are strictly adult only. You'll be more likely to run into a honeymooning couple than a group of spring break partiers. Just south of Cancun, the Riviera Maya provides a peaceful escape from spring break crowds. If you're looking for adult vacations in the Caribbean, you might want to opt for quieter spots like St. Lucia, Antigua, & Exuma as opposed to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. You might also want to opt for a lesser-traveled-to spot like Tahiti or Fiji. Beach Bum Vacations recommends vacationing at a Sandals Resort, since they specialize in luxury adult only all inclusive travel.

If you want to head to Hawaii. stay away from Honolulu and instead look for resorts on Kauai and the Big Island, where you can hike and relax on less-crowded beaches. 

Choose all inclusive travel
Whether you're looking for adult vacations in Tahiti or Hawaii, one of the best ways to avoid the college crowd is to choose luxury all-inclusive travel. In doing so, you can enjoy private beaches, pools and dining experiences, and you'll know what you are getting ahead of time.

You may already have a "bucket list," a collection of things you want to do and places you want to go during your lifetime. Some people would like to dine at the top of the Eiffel Tower or climb Mount Everest, but if you're a Beach Bum, your bucket list might include the powder white sand turquoise beaches of Emerald Bay in Exuma, Bahamas or the serene seasides on the tranquil island of Kauai.

If you're making a Beach Bum Bucket List, start with these legendary shorelines. Whether you have wanderlust or are planning your next family vacation in the Caribbean, these beaches are guaranteed to please.

Emerald Bay, Exuma, Bahamas
The name of this iconic shoreline doesn't lie – wide, empty shoreline is unmistakably pristine and powder white, seductive to shutterbugs as it is to those looking for a relaxing walk along the coastline. This secluded beach offers a romantic atmosphere that would be a memorable addition to any adult vacations to the Caribbean.

Na Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii
Hawaii's most secluded island offers plentiful opportunities to explore secret beaches, but visitors who traverse the 11-mile Kalalau Trail will come across some of the most private beaches, set against dramatic and remote wilderness. In addition to the secluded beaches, you'll see waterfalls and lush jungle terrain on this trail. 

Turks & Caicos Islands
All of the beaches in the Turks & Caicos Islands are unforgettable, so why choose just one? Sailing on a catamaran cruise is a popular activity in this Caribbean locale, and also happens to be one of the best ways to see all the sandy shorelines these islands have to offer. This is a perfect way to spend a day of your honeymoon or your family vacation in the Caribbean.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
If you're looking for stunning shoreline scenery and a cultural atmosphere, Puerto Vallarta is perfect. Although it attracts many visitors each year, it has maintained its small town charm and offers visitors a unique waterfront experience – whether you are looking to relax on the sand or explore the town's history. 

Tulum, Mexico
Admiring the ocean from afar is nice, but if your main objective is swimming, make sure Tulum is on your beach bucket list. This Mexican oasis is touted as one of the best beaches for taking a dip. If you've had enough of the sparkling turquoise waters, you can explore the area's Mayan ruins – Tulum's are some of the best preserved in the Western Hemisphere.
