After the cold winter, spring arrives and with it the renewed desire to enjoy life outdoors. Tropical beach destinations, such asCancunand Playa del Carmen, become particularly attractive to those who have spent several months living with rain and snow.
The spring break tradition started in 1945 at the end of World War II, when thousands of students from universities and colleges in Canada and United Statestraveledto the warm coasts of Florida to celebrate the Easter holidays.
Vacations in the 60's
Years later, due to the development of tourism infrastructure in theCaribbean, students preferred to travel abroad to spend their holidays and to be in contact with different cultures and customs.
In addition to enjoying sun and sand, young people have the opportunity to attend concerts of popular singers and to explore thenatural attractionsof the area. The favorite tourist destinations for young people areAcapulco, Bahamas, Barbados,Cancun, Cozumel and theRiviera Maya.
In this season, which began on February 21st and ends around April 11th, is difficult to find available rooms in hotels. Most of them are booked by big North American companies who organize vacation packages, which may include charter flights,airport transportation, rooms,tours or attractions, and entrance to variouslocal clubs. Many companies also offer 24 hour escort service and assistance to ensure that the experience is pleasant and safe for everyone.
