With its amazingly diverse terrain and bountiful breathtaking landscapes, Hawaii’s Big Island boasts countless potential spring break adventures. Visit the awe-inspiring Kealakekua Bay, where Captain James Cook landed for the first time on the island of Hawaii. The bay is home to a spectacular coral reef, making it an ideal location for some epic diving expeditions. Venture to the iconic Mauna Loa, the world’s largest and one of its most active volcanoes and take in the magnitude of its mighty power on the surrounding land. With an abundance of hiking, water sports, and adventure activities, a trip to the Big Island is always a good idea.

Situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Nicaragua is a gem of Central America that is noted for its diverse terrain containing formations from lakes to idyllic beaches to epic volcanoes. It is an ideal location for spring break adventure. Spend your days exploring the outdoors and inserting yourself directly in it by surfing along the coast, trekking through the dense jungle, climbing up the volcanoes, kayaking in the wetlands, and cooling down with a dive or snorkel trip. At the end of the day, venture to one of the local restaurants and dine on some delicious Gallo Pinto before indulging in the energetic night-time fiestas.

With its laid back lifestyle and natural aesthetic, Pai in Northern Thailand may not seem like a destination for spring break adventure. Still, the area is home to an abundance of activities that are sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Explore the stunning Pai Canyon and admire the magnificent views on one of the various hiking routes. Since it can get quite hot depending on the time of year, visit one of the many waterfalls for the perfect place to cool off. Pambok Waterfall, located a short scooter ride outside Pai, is a hidden gem and alternative to the famous Mo Paeng Falls. Visitors to Pai should also try the blissful hot springs, tubing down the Pai River, and visiting the iconic Pai Circus School.

An autonomous archipelago of Portugal, the Azores islands are home to beautiful scenery, idyllic fishing villages, and expansive green areas. The archipelago is comprised of nine islands divided into three groups, eastern (Sao Miguel and Santa Maria), central (Terceira, Graciosa, Sao Jorge, Pico and Faial islands) and western (Flores and Corvo islands). Sao Miguel is particularly ideal for spring break adventure as visitors of all skill levels can find an activity for them, from rappeling down waterfalls, canyoning, biking along volcanic grounds, or canoeing in a crater lake. Whatever you choose to one or all of these things, a visit to the Azores is one for the memory book.
