Last week was my last spring break ever! It was one of the most relaxing and memorable spring breaks I’ve ever had. I went to the resort town of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with 10 close friends. For those of you who don’t know where Puerto Vallarta is (I didn’t when I first heard of it), it’s located on the west coast of Mexico.
We stayed at the Barceló, an all-inclusive hotel for under $1,000 for 5 nights and 6 days. The Barceló was the perfect resort for college students on a tight budget. The resort was very laid back and family-friendly so I would not recommend it to college students looking to party all week. It was also very secluded, with the city around 30 min away by car. The only time we left the resort was to go on a “City Tequila Tour”, a free day trip we booked through the hotel that took us around the city and to a tequila distillery.
Overall, I had a very pleasant experience. The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly. The food overall was average. However, the stars of the week were the salmon from Don Quixote (one of the four themed restaurants at the resort) and the cheesecake from the snack bar (which is open all day), was well-worth the calories. I also loved the assortment of fresh fruit at the buffet, which definitely satisfied my tropical fruit cravings.
And here some pictures documenting my first all-inclusive trip 🙂
