After two years without a proper spring break, my friends and I decided we wanted to go off for this one! Not only was it our comeback from a spring break hiatus, but it was also our last college spring break and pretty much a graduation trip.

Like many USC students, we decided to go to Tulum in Mexico! The city is ridiculously pretty, and getting to be there for a week with my best friends (we were a group of 12) honestly felt like a dream.

We got to explore some of Tulum’s finest restaurants (imo, they got nothing on the street tacos), relaxed at some beach clubs, went on adventures to the local cenotes, and danced the night away at some local bars!

Some of the highlights of the trip included the paradisiacal beaches, getting to use my Spanish, and honestly sharing a house for a week with the people that have been my best friends since freshman year.

This is a trip I will never forget, and even though our car ran out of battery in the middle of the road and we got scammed at a few places, I would do it all over again!
