Anthropologists seeking ways to explain how spring break has retained its enthusiasm need no artifacts, relics, or the bones of too-enthusiastic party animals left behind to explain how and why this celebration remains popular. This annual ritual has morphed from Florida-centered partying to all manner of coastline events, and like all trends, this one has been assisted by massive amounts of publicity and especially word of mouth. Some students say that spring break is so exciting, it’s atop their social calendars as soon as classes begin.
Fast forward to 2023
Are students currently the only people looking forward to spring break? No longer—especially now that COVID has been wrestled to the ground thanks to masking, distance, vaccines, and boosters. Just about everyone feels entitled to a getaway, and this includes couples, entire families, and even honeymooners. After all, who doesn’t want to go a little wild after surviving another stress-filled winter, so students won’t be the only people you run into once you put into motion your own plan to escape.
Where is everyone headed? Forget about the usual spots. Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, South Padre Island Texas, and the Gulf Coast are so yesterday. Belize is spring break nirvana and depending upon where you live, it could take you less time to fly there than it does to head for these traditionally pricey destinations. Choose The San Ignacio Resort Hotel as your lodging and expect to find yourself amid a lush jungle filled with authentic wildlife that couples, honeymooners, and families seeking a quality spring getaway are sure to appreciate.
Everything at your fingertips at this lush resort
The San Ignacio Resort Hotel is a rare find compared to typical Belize properties. Its location is unique and onsite activities, offer experiences you won’t find elsewhere. From the soothing swimming pool, tennis court, and in-room spa treatments to the tea-tasting medicinal tour, Critters of the Night prowl, birdwatching, and Belize’s number one attraction, The Green Iguana Conservation Project, there’s something for everyone on spring break, and if you do want to explore nearby points of interest, you could walk to cultural attractions, eateries, a casino, and fun farmer’s market.
Spring breaks, as you have likely surmised, are so much more than opportunities to escape parental rules and let freak flags fly; they’re symbolically a salute to renewal, re-dedication, and the reward everyone deserves—especially folks who have been vacation-deprived for extended periods of time. The Belize all-inclusive package you choose offers everything you crave, including fabulous meals at the resort’s gourmet restaurant, a dedicated tour desk, and the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
Best of all, the first day of the 2023 Spring Equinox is March 20th, around the time shoulder season for tourists replaces winter rates and deals begin to bloom. You may even snag a special rate if your timing is right. If you can think of a reason not to take a spring break this year, we’d love to hear it!
