Cancun, Mexico: Heaven on Earth for Spring Breakers

Ohh Cancun, Mexico…where to even begin?? I was fortunate enough to spend my final spring break of college in this crazy destination with 3 of my best girls, or the Fearsome Foursome as we call ourselves.  We went for 4 days and 5 nights and this was plenty of time to soak up some sun and experience the non-stop party that Cancun truly is.  This trip proved to be icing on the cake to my crazy college experience, which I feel wouldn’t have been complete without an insane Mexico spring break adventure.

Accommodation

The girls and I stayed at the Park Royal, which was pretty nice and we got upgraded to the 2 bedroom suite with a balcony and hot tub at check in, so we couldn’t complain! Yet another example of Ballin’ on a Budget in my travels!  The best decision I made for the group was to book a hotel that was all-inclusive.  This means all your food, drinks and room amenities were included in the price of the package.  Of course the food wasn’t great and a buffet isn’t exactly my idea of “fine dining” but when you’re on spring break your main concern is getting some food in your stomach to soak up all that alcohol.  Also the booze isn’t exactly top shelf, but once again it’s spring break and everyone has the same goal in common, whether you’re sipping Grey Goose or vodka out of a plastic bottle.

Location is very important aspect of your trip and varies depending on what your priorities are while in Cancun.  Our priority was a nice hotel on a nice beach and we hit the jackpot.  Make sure to read reviews about the hotels and beaches since there was a bad hurricane a few years ago many were destroyed and in poor condition. We were about 15 minutes by car from downtown, or a cheap taxi ride, which is where all the clubs are located.  We spent our days nursing our hangovers on the beach and not spending a dime while taking full advantage of the all-inclusive aspect at the bar and restaurants.  Some people want to be in the middle of the party 24/7 and for that I would recommend the Oasis Cancun.

Not too shabby of a view from our balcony! :)

Party Party

Obviously most people head to spring break for the insane clubs and ridiculous parties they throw.  There really is nothing like spring break in Cancun, trust me.  We were lucky enough to have promoters come to our hotel, which I’m sure most do, and let us in on some deals for the party scene in Cancun.  For about $20-40 each we were transported to the given club and received free entry and bottles at table for the group from our hotel.  This was amazing because it was much cheaper and we had a great group of crazy randoms at our hotel to hit the clubs with.  Also having a table at these clubs is great because they are so packed, it’s hard to really enjoy yourself.  Some of my favorites were The City, Daddy O’s, The Bulldog, Daddy Rock, and the world famous Coco Bongo.  All these clubs are located within walking distance in the downtown area along with tons of other bars and clubs.  Also check out the concert schedules in Cancun before planning your nights because they tend to have a lot of big performers such as Tiesto, Akon, etc., this time of year.  One more tip: the clubs get SO hot inside, so dress accordingly and prepare to get a lil sweaty while dancing your booty off!

One of my favorite clubs The City - Yes it was like 4 stories!
