Vegas, Cancun, Myrtle Beach -- they've been done. Think beyond spring break and try one of these trips instead
When you think Mexico, visions of tequila shots and beach parties probably come to mind immediately. But of course there's more to Mexico than that, and the city of Merida is a perfect example. It's a cool mix of colonial architecture and a modern vibe, where you can get a taste of "real" Mexico, beyond the $2 Corona specials and thumping nightclubs. You could easily spend your entire vacation in this city (it's in one of the safest states in Mexico, for extra peace of mind), or if you're still set on a Cancun beachfest, Merida is about a three hour drive away, so you could make it a side trip. For more info, check out the Yucatan Today website.
What to pack: You'll want to ditch your bikini and try a more sophisticated look that's still light enough for the warm weather. Try this Printed Pleated Leather Trim Maxi, $98, and Isola Adelina Sandal, $79.95.
