The travel website surveyed nearly 1,600 Americans and found that the average U.S. traveler's budget for vacation flights and accommodations is somewhere in the vicinity of $2,500.

From there, TripAdvisor analyzed the average roundtrip airfare per person and nightly hotel rate for 10 of the most popular Spring Break cities based on instant booking and meta click data for hotel check-ins between March 1-May 31, 2016.
With an average airfare of $397 and an average TripAdvisor hotel rate of just $174, $2,500 can easily score you a whopping 12 nights in Myrtle Beach this spring.
"The TripMaximizer Report found that Myrtle Beach is an outstanding option for travelers to really stretch their travel dollar because of the many low priced, top-rated hotel options and reasonable airfares," TripAdvisor's senior director of communications Brooke Ferencsik said in a statement.
Trailing Myrtle Beach are Anaheim, California (10 nights), and Orlando, Florida (nine nights), with San Diego and New Orleans rounding out the top five at eight nights each.
At just $305 per person on average, Orlando boasts the cheapest airfare of any of the 10 analyzed destinations, while Anaheim's average nightly TripAdvisor hotel rate of $213 is the second-lowest behind only Myrtle Beach.
This spring's final two domestic value destinations are Honolulu and Miami Beach, Florida, where travelers spending $2,500 can stay for six nights and five nights, respectively, based on TripAdvisor's data.(However, Honolulu's average airfare of $746 is the highest of any domestic hotspot analyzed.)
Internationally, San Juan, Puerto Rico; Barcelona, Spain and Cancun, Mexico offer travelers the spring's best bargains. Despite the average airfare to Barcelona being nearly twice as much as San Juan ($857 compared to $453), visitors can stay seven nights in each destination for $2,500 thanks to Barcelona's lower average nightly hotel rate.

With an average nightly hotel rate of $422, Cancun is the most expensive of the 10 destinations. Nonetheless, travelers can still afford a five-night stay in one Mexico's premier resort destinations as a result of affordable airfare.
Keep in mind that the average nightly hotel rates are based on four-star-and-above hotels between March 1-May 31, 2017. Therefore, travelers less concerned with luxury are likely to find a cheaper stay at the same length.
