Top Ten Active Spring Vacations

Cancun, Mexico
Mexico's Riviera Maya
Mexico's ""Riviera Maya"" (Stefano Morini)

For cheap eats, drinks, and crash pads, beautiful weather, beaches, and bodies (as well as the beauty of an 18+ drinking age), spring-breakers know Cancun is Number 1. You get to party all night and rest and recoup on the beach all day.

If you want to break away from the crowded, touristy scene, no worries. Cancun is surrounded by natural wonders: the Great Belize Reef System; uncanny, otherworldly cave diving; and way more Mayan ruins than you could explore in a week. And all this is within a reasonable distance from party central (don't worry, it'll still be raging when you get back).
