Glamp Into Spring Break

By Abby Jeffords

Warmer breezes are about to tear through the walls of winter, and the sun will begin to heat the earth so that the life that had been hibernating can reemerge. Even though flowers are bursting into bloom, animals are awakening, and the land is becoming beautiful and clean, we all know that spring is just a teaser for summer. Why do you think spring break was invented?

After winter, our bones ache for sunshine that seeps into our soul, sandy beaches, fruity drinks, and crashing waves. You don’t want to wait for spring to slowly turn into summer. You want it now, and you can have just that when you glamp into spring break.

Here are our top picks for a glamping spring break:

Hawaii: On a hill in the middle of a coffee farm, you can relax in the sunshine with a fruity drink on the deck of this massive luxury yurt and feel the warm, ocean breezes wash over you, thick with the smell of tropical flowers. Talk about unique!

Florida: Check out this cool up-cycled shipping container turned luxury accommodation in Jupiter, Florida. Glampers will be totally immersed in Florida's fantastic natural wilderness, while still getting to soak up that sweet Floridian sun.

Nicaragua: If you’re searching for a beach bungalow in an unforgettable location, look no further. This mellow Nicaraguan retreat is so close to the sea you can literally roll out of bed and into the sand. The luxurious wooden bungalows have spacious ensuite washrooms and are constructed with renewable materials, keeping with the site’s efforts around sustainable tourism.

Caribbean: Who wouldn't want to soak in the warm Caribbean Sea during spring break? These chic, eco-friendly cabins on Water Island off the southern coast of St. Thomas will bring you back to nature in style with ocean views and a home-away-from-home feel that will make you want to stay forever.

California: It isn't the beach, per se, but there is certainly sand and sun! You may not believe that a tipi can be luxurious, but let this Mojave Desert glamping site convince you. Turkish rugs, plush king-sized beds, mosaic tables and an endless night sky. And all the beauties of the wild Californian desert right outside your door.

Peru: On the shores of northern Peru, these cozy beach bungalows are perfect for a relaxing springtime escape. The bamboo huts are nestled happily in the white sand, only a few feet from the waves of the Pacific. Private washrooms, comfy beds, panoramic views of the ocean and access to the wild beauty of Peru—need we say more?
