NEW YORK, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Protravel International – the travel industry's leading luxury corporate and leisure travel agency with an award-winning reputation – is sharing some of its luxury travel agents' recommendations for spring break this year. With multigenerational, adventure and experiential travel on the rise, Protravel's expert travel agents are once again poised to create indelible memories and enjoyable experiences for their highly diverse clientele.

Their recommendations span the globe:

  1. Japan
    "Among my clientele, Japan has always been a top destination for its food culture all year round, but particularly during spring to see the country's famous cherry blossoms. However, Japan's powdery slopes have become increasingly popular, as travelers are taking advantage of the superb ski conditions until May or even June in some places, ideal temperature and low-season prices. You can enjoy your après-ski in a T-shirt in the sunshine, instead of huddling in a cabin to keep warm." – Laurie Robinson, Protravel, New York.

  2. Australia and New Zealand
    "With new direct flights from the West Coast reaching more places 'Down Under' than ever before, Australia and New Zealand are hot destinations this year. Both countries are very family-friendly and easy to travel around, perfect for families seeking fun, safe and relatively well-priced places to take their kids to this spring." – Vikram Seshadri, Protravel, San Francisco.

  3. Destinations in Europe
    "The strength of the U.S. dollar against the euro and new nonstop flights from the West Coast make Iceland and Scandinavia two top spring destinations." – Vikram Seshadri
    "Many parents and families visit their children during their spring break as they are studying abroad in some of the most culturally diverse cities in Europe, such as Barcelona. To enhance their stay in Europe, they can easily combine it with a visit to other destinations like Paris, Sevilla, Toledo, Cordoba, or Amsterdam to see its famous flower market." – Roberta Long-Kelleher, Protravel, New York.

  4. Cuba
    "Fathom – a new cruise line from Carnival Corp. – is launching this April and will be offering impact cruises to Cuba as early as May. With reasonable prices, it's the perfect combination of vacation and meaningful on-the-ground interactions for late spring breakers and students (over the age of 21) looking to have fun and better the world." – Marisa Costa, Protravel, New York.

  5. South Africa
    "With the rand at a low, it's never been a better time to go to South Africa. Adventurers can jump off one of the world's highest bungee jumps and cage dive with great white sharks, while those looking for culture can enjoy the rich history and vibrant food scenes of its cities. It's such a big country, activities are endless, and there are so many ways to get off the beaten track." – Marisa Costa.

  6. Puerto Rico
    "For families who want more than just lying on the beach, I recommend going to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Easy to access, Puerto Rico offers a wide range of adventure and experiential opportunities like hiking in the El Yunque Rainforest, zip lining at several locations, visiting the El Morro historical fortress, or just enjoying shopping and dining in picturesque Old San Juan." – Roberta Long-Kelleher

  7. Mexico for the luxury traveler
    "I recommend luxury properties in Cancun, as it is the perfect destination for a last-minute trip and it's easy to get in and out from almost every major U.S. hub." – Lisa Grossman, Protravel, New York.

  8. Destinations in the United States
    "National Parks such as Yellowstone, Grand Teton or Yosemite, are among the hottest destinations for families, individuals and couples this spring." – Melinda Gerdts, Protravel, Roseland, NJ.

    "Families with a love for nature, snow adventure, and exquisite accommodations with excellent service should spend a week at the sun-filled Deer Valley in Utah." – Richard Engle, Protravel, Chicago.

    "In March, Snowmass, Colorado, and Park City, Utah, also offer unsurpassed skiing conditions." – Roberta Long-Kelleher.

    "This year, Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina, are two of the most popular places offering activities for all ages." – Jesse Katz, Protravel New York.
