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.
