If we went with Miami we'd probably go to Ultra.. although I'm not sure how good that is. Where would you go and why? And if you have gone to either, how was it?

    What's your budget for the trip?
  • DyeammDyeamm Posts: 39Registered User Junior Member
    I'd be happy paying 1k+.. not more than like $1500-2000.. obviously the cheaper the better

    Where do you live? How much are flights to Miami and Cancun?
  • DyeammDyeamm Posts: 39Registered User Junior Member
    I live in jersey.. looked today and prices to cancun and miami are about the same going upwards of 400-550..

    i recently did some research to see if it was better to do everything through one of those college travel things like studentcity or something. if i go somewhere for spring break id want to get the complete best out if

    Honestly Miami is pretty fun but you have to consider costs and I'd say it is more expensive but Mexico is crazy dangerous right now so I'd go miami

    I think being very conservative, it can be done for less than $1,500, but I think after you account for all of the expenses, it will be around $1,500-$2,000 for a week. It really just depends what hotels you want to stay in. I would choose Las Vegas over Miami and Cancun. But, out of your 2 choices, I would go with Miami.

    The only thing to remember is that you would be legal to drink in Cancun so no problems getting into bars or clubs that you wanna go to. I hear Miami is kinda tough on fakes.

    ^^ this is another point i was thinking about that would make things a lot easier. i dont have a fake right now but i have people who buy me my booze. i dont know anyone in miami so that would make things a lot harder

    Don't get caught drinking underage. It's just not worth it. And having a fake ID is a federal crime.

    dont think I'll ever get a fake.. like you said, just not worth it.

    After doing some research Panama city, FL looks intriguing.. and seems a lot more affordable.
