With spring break around the corner, it’s time to start planning a week of beach going, partying, and a whole host of activities best kept on the D.L. around your parents and future employers. It’s not hard to find a comprehensive list of the best spring break destinations, but one thing sorely missing from these guides is the food. Unless you plan on fulfilling all of your calorie needs in the bars, you’ll need the low-down on where to eat during your next spring break getaway.
We’ve researched the top spring break destinations and uncovered the best places to eat in each location. This is the guide for food lovers, which means all of the places we recommend come highly reviewed in food publications and on user-review sites. Keeping in mind the limits of a student budget, we’ve skipped over the high-end dining rooms and focused on eateries that represent the best in authentic, local cuisine.
If you’re the type of spring breaker who prefers to uncover the best tacos in Cabo San Lucas, the killer breakfast to nurse your hangover at Yummie’s Coffee Shack in South Padre Island, Texas, or an authentic Bahaman seafood lunch at Arawak Cay in Nassau, we’ve got everything to fuel those long days on the beach and crazy nights in the club.
Be warned: not all of your fellow spring breakers will be as interested in the culinary delights of your surroundings. But it’s their loss. With this guide in hand, you’ll have everything you need for the best spring break ever.
