Americans have their sights set on sunny beach destinations this spring.

According to new data from Allianz Partners—which analyzed more than 3.4 million flight itineraries for spring break trips between five and eight days in length—Florida and Mexico are among the most popular getaways this season.

The Sunshine State boasts five cities in the domestic top 10, including top-ranked and ever-evolving Orlando, Fort Lauderdale (fifth), Miami (seventh), Tampa (eighth) and Fort Myers (10th).

Other cities garnering significant interest this spring include Phoenix (second), Las Vegas (third), New York (fourth), Los Angeles (sixth) and Salt Lake City (ninth).

When it comes to international trips, Cancun is the hottest destination, followed by San Jose del Cabo and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Americans venturing abroad are also showing interest in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Nassau, Bahamas; Oranjestad, Aruba; London, UK; Providenciales, Turks and Caicos and Liberia, Costa Rica.

Allianz found that approximately three-fourths (76 percent) of the itineraries were for domestic travel and about a quarter (24 percent) were for international trips. Additionally, it was revealed that Americans are spending an average of $4,681 on their spring break travels, which signals a 7.9 percent increase in spending compared to the same period last year ($4,339).

“Americans are not only headed for warm-weather destinations but are warming up their wallets in pursuit of unforgettable spring break experiences,” Daniel Durazo, director of external communications at Allianz Partners USA, said in a statement.

“Making family memories is important, and travel mishaps can throw off even the best-planned trips this spring break. To help avoid unwanted stresses, a travel insurance policy is an important consideration, as it may reimburse you for covered trip cancellations and interruptions, travel delays and unexpected illness or injuries,” Durazo added.
