March is the unofficial month of spring break
Which -- at least to hundreds of thousands of college students across the nation -- means it's a 30-day stretch of time dedicated to partying, preferably in beachy locations around the world, if you're looking to get the classic spring break fix, here are the top Spring Break destinations for partying.
Cancun -- with its beautiful sandy beaches and turquoise waters -- is one of the world’s top beach destinations, and it is also one of the most-visited spring break destinations on the planet.
The Hotel Zone is where to go if you're looking for all the college spring break staples; dozens of mega resorts line miles and miles of postcard-perfect beaches where guests lounge in the sun, margarita in hand. Hotels here cater to spring breakers, hard partier's, young couples and rowdy groups with night-long parties, loud entertainment, cheap booze and all-inclusive plans.
Where to stay: Hotel Riu Cancun
In the heart of the Hotel Zone, Hotel Riu Cancun sits on a sprawling piece of beachfront that’s close to bars, nightclubs, restaurants and shops. The all-inclusive 569-room resort offers three swimming pools, a buffet-style restaurant, as well as three themed restaurants and a range of on-site activities that includes nightly live shows, tennis, windsurfing and a nightclub. Rooms are a bit outdated, but most consider it a small trade off for the affordable prices.
