Feel more adventurous? Travel to Jamaica, an island paradise where reggae, romance and the Caribbean sun come together. Highschoolvacations.com has a trip flexible to your needs and wants. Highschoolvacations.com says, “Negril, the “capital of casual” located on the western tip of Jamaica, is a favorite spot to view the sun sinking into the ocean. Swim among dolphins, find breathtaking waterfalls, expansive beaches, tropical gardens, and fern gullies; if you are up to the climb, the 700-foot cascading waterfalls at Dunns River Falls beckon. Depending on your tastes, your Jamaican vacation activities can include horseback riding, polo, golf, tennis, shopping, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, sailing and surfing, rafting, swimming and sunbathing on gorgeous beaches. Add shopping and fabulous dining to the list!” The cost of this experience cannot be determined because you get to decide what you do, so the cost will change according to your plans.
Highschoolvacations.com also has some exotic Mexican trips available. Straight from their website, they describe the trip here. “If the site of a magnificent mountain desert disappearing into the cobalt blue Pacific Ocean is your idea of bliss, then Cabo San Lucas is your ideal destination. With more than 300 days of annual sunshine and less than 10 inches of annual rainfall, the spring’s temperature is typically 80°F.
You might spend a day deep sea fishing in the marlin capital of the world or go sailing or kayaking past the famous Land’s End rock formations. With a little luck, you might spot seals, whales or even a regatta race. Golfers delight the challenge of a world-class course while beaches beckon sunbathers. As evening approaches, prepare for an amazing meal and dancing at a variety of restaurants, clubs, discos, and bars.” The cost of this experience cannot be determined because you get to decide what you do, so the cost will change according to your plans.
