Break Out Of The Ordinary For Spring Break 2020

Break Out Of The Ordinary For Spring Break 2020

This year, think outside of the box for your spring break 2020 adventures. You can still have the usual spring break experiences – beaches, relaxation and all-ages adventure. But you can throw in some new elements as well. Go ahead, break out of the ordinary this spring break.

Pure Relaxation At Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa

According to  this survey, 50 percent of spring breakers say they plan to simply relax during break in 2020. And there isn’t a better place for that than at  Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa. Located at the base of the Arenal Volcano in the northern region of Costa Rica, Tabacón is home to the country’s largest network of naturally flowing hot springs. It might just be the ultimate spring break getaway. Not only can you escape crazy college-aged kids, the property’s new, multi-room  Senator Suite provides space, privacy and luxury accommodations. It’s an excellent choice for small groups of friends who want to spring break together without rowdy crowds.

An essential part of exploring Tabacón are the thermal waterfalls. Here, the 100+ degree thermal rivers will provide a boost of warmth after a long, cold winter. In fact, water from the thermal rivers is redirected using an underground, gravity-fed system and is the only source of water used throughout the property. Guests also receive the health benefits of hydrotherapy in their guest rooms with a daily supply of fresh mineral water and thermal water showers. And since Tabacón’s use of water is sustainable, you’ll feel better about your carbon footprint.

  • Good to know: Flights  to Costa Rica actually tend to be cheaper in March in comparison to January, which was the most visited month in 2018.

A Different Kind Of Florida Spring Break In South Walton

Florida is of course one of the most popular (and clichéd) spring break destinations. But South Walton offers a more chill spin on Ft. Lauderdale-style antics … without sacrificing any of the beautiful beach vibes. Located on the Florida panhandle, South Walton offers beautiful scenery, welcoming weather and plenty of things to do making it a favorite spring break vacation spot.

\Wine lovers should time their trips around the South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival (April 23-26). The event features more than 800 wines, a chef-inspired culinary village, and hands-on educational seminars with industry experts and renowned chefs. And don’t miss Bud & Alley’s, a pioneer of the fish- and farm-to-table food movement, the award-winning menu features Gulf coast classics paired with Southern-style cuisine. The sunsets are as gorgeous as the food is delicious. Craft beer & spirits lovers will love exploring the South Walton scene, from grain-to-glass options at  Distillery 98 to hoppy IPAs at Grayton Beer Company.

South Walton is also great for families looking for an all-ages spring break getaway. Take sandcastle lessons with  Beach Sand Sculptures. Each group gets a Sand Castle Coach to guide them through the proper sandcastle building stages bringing vacation memories that will last a lifetime. The family experience is even more appealing, thanks to high-design, high-luxury vacation rentals. These spots are tricked out with all the bells and whistles to keep everyone happy – in-home arcades, indoor/outdoor pool, movie theaters, putting greens, tennis courts and more.

For travelers with a taste for outdoor adventure, South Walton won’t disappoint. Dive the  Underwater Museum of Art (UMA), the country’s first and only permanent underwater museum. There are several amazing sculptures to discover beneath the waves, surrounded by dazzling marine life. Then, explore the 15,000-acre  Point Washington State Forest, which includes more than 27 miles of distinct trails through longleaf pine flatwoods, wet prairie, coastal scrub, swamplands and sandhills.
