Of course, you might have some discretionary income now that doesn’t come from your parents’ credit card. And perhaps a party trip to some exotic international destination is in order. Lucky you, the world’s best party city tops this month’s list of cheap airfares, as Seoul will have flights down 35% to $589. If you’d like to see a side of Mexico that doesn’t include beer bongs on the beach, Mexico City flights are down 26% to $289. And if mainlining hard liquor for a week still holds a perverse appeal, San Jose del Cabo will be 30% cheaper in March, with flights for $292. The rest of the international deals:
1. Seoul, South Korea -- $589 (35%)
2. Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic -- $428 (30%)
3. San Jose del Cabo, Mexico -- $292 (30%)
4. Rome, Italy -- $546 (28%)
5. Venice, Italy -- $666 (26%)
6. Mexico City, Mexico -- $289 (26%)
7. Athens, Greece -- $734 (24%)
8. Nassau, Bahamas -- $399 (24%)
9. Munich, Germany -- $621 (23%)
10. Zurich, Switzerland -- $614 (23%)
Much like the quality of a whistle-blower’s tequila, none of this is guaranteed. Though Hopper does predict this stuff with 95% accuracy, which if they were playing beer pong would pretty much make them Kings of Spring Break. If you’re keen on going somewhere this March you can download the Hopper app, enter your desired destination and dates, and wait for them to alert you when airfares start to drop. Or you can spend your downtime scouring the internet to catch the best deals. As the great 20th-century philosopher Humpty Hump once said, doowutchyalike.
Spring break doesn’t have to mean acting like a college kid again. It can, but it can also mean taking some time when the weather starts to warm, and getting the heck outta town. Whether it’s partying, immersing yourself in another culture, or just Instagramming pictures of yourself with fruity drinks on the beach, spring break is still a helluva concept. Especially when you’re old enough to make slightly better decisions.
