Alright people, let’s talk spring break. Assuming you’ve already saved up a few dollars, sworn off the cold and convinced your parents you deserve to get away for a week, let’s make this thing happen.

We’ve teamed up with Wild Side Travel to give Spoon readers an exclusive package to help you avoid ending up at sketchy, overpriced places your parents have nightmares about. Plus, planning the trip from scratch is the worst part about this process, so we’ve got all the details figured out for you.

The special deals we have for Spoon readers are in Puerto Vallarta ($759) and Cancun ($999 – $1,099). You and your friends just need to pick your place, pick your dates, sign up and start getting excited.

Side note, we’ve personally been on Spring Break trips with Wild Side in college, so we back these guys 100%.

Here’s the deal for PV:

  • 5 nights all-inclusive resort for $759
  • Free 5-star meal
  • Spoon readers get the party package for $99 (normally $229) which gets you VIP tables with unlimited bottle service and open bar every night
  • Spoon members get the party package for free
  • Spring break reps get a free trip*
  • Air fare not included

*Holy shit, a free trip? What’s the deal? If you get at least 15 of your friends to sign up for a trip, you get yours for free. Email if you want to be a rep.
