This Mexican getaway has long been a spring break favorite. Margarita madness reigns supreme every March and April as students pack the beaches and clubs late into the next morning.

Take a ferry to Cozumel or a bus to Playa del Carmen if you’re looking for a more relaxing experience along sandy beaches with steady waves. Go for a swim or enjoy some snorkeling off the shore at Xel-Ha. Not into the nightlife?

Take a trip to Tulum where lights are out at 10pm. Don’t forget your passport.

How to Find a Great Show in Any City You Travel To

Part of the joy of travelling is enjoying some of the local atmosphere. This includes more than just enjoying dining experiences and area tourist attractions. Finding an entertaining show adds to the experience of travelling.

One of the great joys of enjoying a show when you travel is witnessing an approach to entertainment that you may not have been able to witness in person prior to this point.

Finding those great shows takes a little effort and planning, but the payoff is a travel experience that is even more memorable.

How to Find a Great Show in Any City You Travel To Don’t Think Like a Tourist

When you start your hunt for a great show to enjoy when you are in different city, think of yourself as a resident of that city rather than a visitor.

Ask yourself what you would be interested in seeing if you lived there. This gives you a different perspective when you start your hunt for some entertainment.

Look for a local events calendar online to see what shows are coming up on the dates you will be travelling to that particular city.

Plan Ahead

Some shows have limited availability. You will have a greater selection of seating options and available dates if you purchase your tickets in advance. Start looking for shows as soon as you make your travel plans. Click here to read more »
