It’s time for that annual rite of spring—when spring breakers descend on these popular destinations, ready to party.

Acapulco, Mexico

25 of 21

On Mexico’s Pacific coast, this town has a scenic position on a curved bay and was the preferred getaway for the rich and famous in the 1950s and ’60s. Fast-forward a few decades (which saw the rise of mega-resorts and neon-lit dance clubs), and foreign tourists are now mostly of the spring breaker variety. Not only has some glamour faded, but Acapulco has also taken a hit from drug-related violence. Still, the package deals keep the partiers coming; Acapulco was the sixth most popular spring break destination of 2012, according to STA Travel.
