Top 10 Family Spring Break Destinations and Why

When you are deciding to take your family on a nice Spring Break vacation, figuring out where to go can be the hardest part of the whole process. Every Spring Break destination has its ups and downs, so the purpose of this post is to give you a good idea of what your options are. We've come up with a list of the top 10 destinations to take your family for Spring Break.

#1 Cancun, Mexico

Cancun is the all-around #1 Spring Break destination in the world. Resorts are top notch, everything is very tourist friendly, the weather is unbelievable, and on top of it all you get crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. There are countless side trips and activities for you to choose from, and the night life is very active once you put your kids to bed. Also, all-inclusive options make budgeting much easier.
When you book a trip to Cancun through Inertia Tours we have scheduled flights, on-site staff from the U.S. to help you out, and more. Find more info at

#2 Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Coming in at #2 is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Though not as popular as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta is becoming one of the bigger international destinations for Spring Break. This may be an advantage though, as it will be slightly less crowded than Cancun. It may not have quite as many side trips or activities as Cancun, but there is still plenty to do here. Also, the weather is still fantastic, and the beaches are still beautiful. Also, many consider Puerto Vallarta beaches the safest in Mexico.
The resorts are nice and laid back, with quality service that you just can't find anywhere else. Also, if you book through Inertia Tours, we have our onsite manager Andy who lives in Puerta Vallarta year round so that he is always available to help you out, no matter when you book your trip.

#3 South Padre Island, Texas

South Padre Island comes in at #3 for a few reasons. For one, it is the warmest Spring Break destination in the U.S. with temperatures often in the 80's in March. It's also a bit more affordable as it is in the United States. There are nice resorts you can stay at with private beaches. Endless activities and side trips are available like dolphin tours, deep sea fishing, and even sky diving on the beach. Also, South Padre is the Sand Castle capital of the world! While this is a big destination for college students, it is also a great place to take your family.

#4 Panama City, Florida

Panama City is also a very popular destination. It is located in the Northern part of Florida, in the panhandle. You can choose from a variety of hotels, resorts, or condos to stay at. What really sets Panama City apart from other Florida destinations are the beaches. The incredibly white "sugar sand" makes you want to spend your whole trip just relaxing at the beach.

#5 Mazatlan, Mexico

Mazatlan is definitely not as well known as Puerto Vallarta and Cancun. It is still a great place for a family Spring Break vacation, though. The atmosphere is fun, the beaches are great, the food is fantastic, and the weather is typical of Mexico at this time (which is usually perfect since it isn't rainy season during Spring Break). It is a very historical city, which can be fun to learn about with your family.

 #6 Leon, Nicaragua

Nicaragua is quickly become one of the most popular alternative Spring Break destinations. Located right above Costa Rica, the tropical weather is perfect. Once you actually get to Nicaragua you will notice the prices for everything are MUCH lower than in the U.S. and there are unique side trips and activities you can do (like visiting volcanoes). The beaches are less crowded and seem untouched. If you are into surfing or want to learn to surf, Nicaragua is a great place to do it.

#7 Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is often overlooked as a Spring Break destination, but it shouldn't be! It offers a little bit of Caribbean experience that you can get on (kind of) U.S. soil. The pretty beaches make swimming and windsurfing popular.

#8 Bahamas Cruise

While we wouldn't normally recommend a cruise for Spring Break, you can book a Bahamas Cruise through Inertia Tours. This cruise is a little different because you spend 2 nights on the cruise ship (there and back) and 2 nights at a hotel. This way you can get the full Bahamas experience instead of a quick pit stop. 

#9 Miami, Florida

Even though Miami is not as far South as South Padre Island (making it a little bit colder), it is still a nice Spring Break destination. You can feel safe as you are still in the United States, and you can enjoy the great food! Beaches there are pretty nice, and there are endless choices when it comes to resorts and places to stay.

#10 Breckenridge, Colorado

This might seem like a weird destination for Spring Break, but sometimes it is nice to skip the beach when you go on a family Spring Break trip. There is still snow for skiing and snowboarding, but it is much less crowded this time of year! The resort is fantastic. You can get living rooms, full kitchens, fireplaces, plus multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. The condos are even within walking distance of the ski lifts. The mountains are beautiful, so don't miss out on the scenery!
