All night long diva
There is always someone in the group who refuses to accept that it is time to go to bed, even if all of her friends have already left. She’s the one who’s still lining up shots for people as they try to walk out the door and tries to get everybody dancing even if they’re falling asleep. Of course, there’s only one destination for this party girl and it’s Cancun.
The infamous Coco Bongo is an all-night party paradise, and the music does not stop for anyone. Then there’s The City, nine bars spread over three floors and host to more than five thousand people at times. This is where top international DJs have been known to perform, including the likes of Tiësto and Paul Van Dyk! What are you waiting for?
Pack for a party
Avoid overheating in the crowds by not wearing anything too heavy, as this could force an early night from even the most notorious all-night long reveller. Most of the clubs state that their dress code is casual or “club attire” so whatever you feel comfortable in is what only matters.
The sleepy one
This girl has a religious routine for getting enough sleep, and she often struggles to keep up with her livewire friends. She is too laid-back for a night of partying, she’d rather sleep until the early afternoon and is always the furthest away from any drama. The location for this co-ed is Punta Cana.
Punta Cana favours zen daytime vibes over vibrant evening nightlife. Instead, go all-inclusive and you’ll struggle to find a reason to even leave the resort! Fancy doing some light exercise? Head to Bávaro or Cap Cana for a spot of golfing.
A minimal suitcase
It is a bikini only zone, as long days are spent beneath the hot Dominican sun. Grab a good book and beach towel and you’re good to go.
She enjoys the finer things in life, and you’ll find her at the mall or dining in a high-end restaurant. She’s not afraid to overspend and probably has a make-up box worth more than her flight tickets to this destination! It’s no surprise that she’d fit right in at the idyllic Bahamas.
With a range of breath taking beauty spots to enjoy, including the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve and Lucayan National Park — she will be scouting out all of the best backdrops for her Instagram.
Dress to impress
This girl knows how important it is to have plenty of oversized sunglasses and going out dresses, and it could take her a while to get ready before hitting the casinos. Don’t forget to bring a full purse because you’ll be spoilt for choice at the duty-free shops.
Beach ready babe
Those last-minute workouts are not on this girls’ holiday preparation schedule. Whether she’s trying out the latest Kardashian fad diet or LA fitness craze, she loves nothing more than showing off her abs in a bikini. Girls like this should get their flights booked to Cabo San Lucas.
This slice of Mexican bliss can be found at the edge of Baja California and is home to unmissable golden sands and clear waters. While you’re here, discover the well-known rock formation The Arch of Cabo San Lucas or keep your fitness levels up with a hike up Mount Solmar.
Immerse yourself in the surroundings by packing bikinis, snorkelling gear and hiking boots.
The helping hand
This friend is committed to helping those in need, and she is fiercely loyal. From extra-curricular charity events to fundraising for local causes, her mind is always on making a difference. These thoughtful souls should head over to Puerto Rico for spring break.
Puerto Rico is an eclectic mix of enticing nightlife and local culture, and you must try both while you are there!You can also take the opportunity to get involved with the hurricane relief efforts and help out the locals.
A simple suitcase?
There’s quite a relaxed atmosphere here, with some opportunities to learn a bit of culture so you might want to pack suitable footwear and comfortable T-shirts.
Days in Puerto Rico are for exploring local sights and sampling the cuisines available, so dress casually and bring a hat or cap- the sun can be intense on our scalps!
You always enjoy the tastiest food when you are out with this girl, after she has photographed he meal and uploaded it to her Insta feed. A holiday is incomplete if it doesn’t include amazing food, so Jamaica is the ultimate spot!
You will be able to sample some of the most authentic jerk chicken, and tuck into a classic Jamaican patty while on spring break here. Combine this with the idyllic beaches and relaxed reggae vibes and you’ll have a spring break you won’t forget!
Dressing to dine
There’s the perfect mix of exploring and relaxing to be done in Jamaica, but the main thing is that you’re comfortable so pack something that’s easy to walk around in.
Your vacation will be full of activity as you venture through food markets, so pack a trusty selection of shorts and camisoles, as well as some comfortable sneakers or sandals!
So… Have you decided where you will go? It’s time to start packing your suitcase for spring break!
