White sand beaches popular destination for spring break

Thursday, March 8, 2001

Cancun, Mexico is the #1 hot spot for Storm Lakers on spring break trips this year and local travel agencies are helping people get there.

With spring break vacations beginning as early as this weekend, Jean Paterson at Nomad Travel said most of the students have their trips already lined up.

"The college students usually do wait until the last minute and we've been doing some last minute specials, but for the most part everyone is all ready to go," Patterson said.

Along with Cancun, the students are heading to South Padre, Jamaica, Bahamas, Acapulco and Florida. They are looking foremost for good weather, white sand beaches and preferably clear blue water, she said.

Spring breaks and high school graduation trips prefer Cancun and Purerto Vallarta above all other destinations, while adult spring travelers are looking for less crowded hotspots.

The students want to stay in mega spring break resorts, eat in world class restaurants and party in the hottest nightclubs., with beaches and water sports to pass the days.
