February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 136

Spring Break 2012 is quickly coming up and many students all over the country are trying to figure out where to spend these glorious few weeks. There are many different wonderful options for young people to consider when traveling abroad for spring break. However, if you have not already gotten your passport you may need to get an overnight passport shipped to you before you are able to leave on your trip. A passport is a travel document that every citizen must have when traveling internationally.

Passport Requirements

In the past, anyone visiting Mexico from the United States was not required to have a passport with them to be allowed into the country. However, that is not the case anymore. Anyone wishing to travel to Mexico for Spring Break is now required to have a valid United States passport. Thankfully, unlike the past, obtaining a passport is much easier and simpler than ever before. Just go online and find a reputable passport services company and you will have your new passport in no time.

Passport Services

If you are willing to spend a little extra, there are some companies that can get you a passport in a matter of days. Actually, there are even some companies that can have your passport delivered to you overnight. This is a fantastic service for people who have forgotten they need a passport and must get one quickly before they leave on their overseas vacation. It is important to remember, however, if you do not wish to spend a lot of money to begin the process of getting a passport well before you are scheduled to leave on a trip overseas.

Famous Nightlife

One of the most famous Spring Break destinations in all of Mexico is the town of Acapulco. It is home to some of the most stunning beaches in all of Mexico and has incredible nightlife geared towards Spring Break travelers. Every Spring Break thousands of students from all of the country descend upon Acapulco to have a great time.

Celebrity Visitors

Along with being a favorite destination of students, Acapulco used to be a favorite destination of many big name celebrities. Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor used to frequent the town often and indulged in the wonderful nightlife and hotels it had to offer. In addition, the Prince of Wales used to tell all of his elite friends that Acapulco was one of the most beautiful places in the world to travel to.

Beautiful Beaches

In addition to having beautiful beaches, Acapulco is known for its wonderful and exciting nightlife. There are many different clubs and bars that cater specifically to young travelers who are visiting for Spring Break. Also, the drinking age in Mexico is 18, meaning most college aged travelers will be able to enjoy an alcoholic beverage when they visit.

Other Activities

Along with all of the traditional Spring Break activities that there are to do in Acapulco, there are also many fascinating cultural sites and attractions. There are wonderful spots where tourists can go bungee jumping or cliff diving if you are feeling adventurous. Also, Acapulco is home to some incredible game fishing. This is just another reason why so many travelers enjoy their time in Acapulco, Mexico.

If you are going to be traveling to Mexico for Spring Break you are sure to have an amazing time. However, you must remember that anyone who is planning on travel to Mexico, unlike in the past, must have a valid United States passport. If you wait until the last minute to get a passport you may have to apply for an overnight passport. This can be a very expensive service, however, it is good to know that it is available should you need it.
