February and March are still part of the high season in Cancun — albeit cheaper than the Christmas rush — but the bang for your buck makes a compelling argument for visiting.

The middle two weeks of March, in particular, are popular with groups flocking over for spring break. So, if you don’t mind crowds, it’s the perfect sunny escape.

Who knows! You may even make some new friends in the process.

Like Cancun, March is a high season for Belize, but it is also a very cheap destination for those looking to combat the winter blues.

If you plan on travelling in a group, specifically, you will likely find Belize a very affordable place to visit through splitting the costs of things such as accommodation.

Caye Caulker is an ideal spot for budget travellers as it is nearby San Pedro on Ambergris Caye and has a very similar vibe while also having lower prices.

Lima, Peru

As a warm destination, Lima is a popular place to visit from December through February.

However, come March, the crowd numbers subside, which causes hotels to drop their prices. The colonial city is rich in history, culture, and an abundance of delicious food choices at affordable costs.

As well, just because the crowds are dwindling, doesn’t mean that the nice weather is gone. The sunny days with warm temperatures extend into late April.

If you are seeking an exotic destination without a massive price tag,Ā MedellĆ­n is ideal.

US dollars can be stretched pretty far once converted into pesos and, in most venues, it is best to bring cash so that you can haggle your way into even better deals with at local markets.

MedellĆ­n is an excellent spring break destination for those who are looking to strike a balance between lazing in the sun and going on adventurous excursions.
