According to US News - Travel, the 11 hottest spring break destinations are found right in the USA, and with most of them you can save money and avoid breaking the bank.
Miami Beach - Although pricey, Florida vacations offer lots of entertainment--24-7. Clubs, bars, sandy beaches and "colorful" streets make the spending worth it.
South Padre Island - Touted for its affordable accommodations, South Padre Island is a great place to catch a break.
Cancun - Cancun is one of the more popular Spring Break locations in North America, and there is a reason. Affordable housing, lots of sand and a rowdy night life, this laid-back locale is the place to be.
Puerto Vallarta - Are you the outdoorsy type? If so, this is the place for you. Explore powdery sand and hidden coves, and don't forget "abundant" happy hours that cater to those on a tight budget.
Bahamas - Lots of hiking, great sands and awesome waves are three reasons why the Bahamas attract tons of visitors. Cheap accommodations also make it more affordable.
Puerto Rico - Gorgeous--that word usually describes Puerto Rico, probably because of its picturesque beaches--vistas for your soul!
Jamaica - Montego Bay and Negril are popular spots, but no matter where you stay the native music will whisk you away.
Cabo San Lucas - Accommodations tend to run high, according to US News; however, beaches like Playa Medano "appeal to students in need of some R&R."
Playa del Carmen - Often compared to Cancun because of affordable accommodations, Playa del Carmen is described as more laid-back and low-key.
Sanibel Island - Described as calming, Sanibel Island is the opposite of a party locale. Cute boutiques and quiet shoreline with shells are what you will see. The seafood is the BOMB!
Daytona - Named the NASCAR capital, Daytona was once THE place to go for Spring Break. With beaches you can drive on and bargain-friendly hotels, students from all over flock here.
