Cancun Spring Break 2024: Not Just for College Kids

Spring Break Cancun! I clearly remember the posters lining the hallway in my high school in Canada in the 80’s. Turquoise waters, palm trees, white sand and party, right? With the Canadian winter blowing outside, I fell into daydreaming with those posters, Cancun Spring Break became a recurring fantasy. Swoon.

I have lived in Cancun for 20 years. I have “been there, done that, got the tshirt” 20 times with Spring Break. Fantasy is reality and I see Cancun spring break in a really different way. It’s not just bikini clad babes, ripped ab dudes and drinking contests. Though hey, nothing wrong with that. The fantasy college kid party scene still exists and it is world-class. Cancun has been one of the top spring break destinations for a long, long time and the experience is stellar.

Family travel to Cancun for Spring Break 2024

Cancun’s reputation as party central has evolved over the years as the destination has changed its focus to family travel in March. I have noticed the shift in marketing strategies (that’s my job) to include more kids with baby bottles than with bottles of tequila. The spring vacations for elementary and high school in Canada and the USA are important dates for hoteliers and service providers like Cancun transportation companies.

Cancun and the Riviera Maya have tons to offer everyone during spring break 2024. There are hotels that focus on the foam parties and the flowing beer. Other hotels welcome families to fantastic activities that feature the nature, culture and history of the Mexican Caribbean. The weather is FINE, I mean, FIIIIIIIIIINE, one of the best times of the year to visit. Sunshine and blue skies and an ocean breeze sound good?

MICHAEL - 9 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Hotel Occidental Costa Cancun

Friendly drivers and always on time.

Know what you want before booking. Snorkeling not good, drunken co-ed vibe.
Trusted Customer - 11 days ago Cancun Catamaran Tour

The service was just fine. Everyone was very nice. However, it was definitely a "drunken co-ed" vibe, and that was just not what we were looking for. Loud music, and a guy dressed up in a bra and wig pouring shots into people's mouths on the way back. That's not our vibe, but if that's what you're looking for... The sea was quite choppy where we were let out to snorkel. Obviously, they can't control that, but it was so rough you really couldn't see anything. We were quite rushed, and they only provided masks and snorkels, no fins (they did provide life vests). I had my own equipment, including fins, and I actually had to help a lady who was starting to panic, as she was swallowing. I had to grab her and tow her in as the guides were yelling at us to hurry up. Finally a guide came back and helped. Not a super great experience. The beach club was ok. The food was mediocre, but that's to be expected. The beach area was crowded and smelled of raw sewage.
