When to go to miss Spring break

Thinking about a trip sometime around April/ May 2013 and am tempted by good offers at Secrets the Vine. However we really don't want to hit a spring break. While we dont mind the odd blow out would also like a bit of peace and quiet. Is there any period during those months which might be ok?

Dont go in March or the first two weeks of April. That is a nice heafty window of approx. 6 weeks but that should just about cover it.

I can't imagine there being any spring breakers at Secrets... That said, we were there March 31-April 6 last year and it was the last week of spring break parties; Oasis was starting to take down the stage and banners the day we checked out, so late April onward would be safe.

Don't go anytime in March, particularly the middle two weeks, to avoid Spring Breakers.

But more importantly, don't go at Easter or the week before Easter! Even more packed.

Easter is the last day of March... so from maybe mid-Feb, thru the first week of April (adjoins Easter) will def. be Spring Break weeks.

We are booked for the third week of April.

If you can go later in your window, maybe into May.. That will def. avoid Spring Break, as all students are back in school, working on Finals, Standardized Testing, etc...

Might be getting a little warm by May.

But that should avoid any Spring Break issues!

Yep...Either Winter or just avoid mid-February through mid-April. Outside of those times and summer, you'll also find GREAT rates.

Many thanks. May is looking good.

We are already going early Nov so winter was first choice, but those good rates up to May are tempting too
