WinterBreak filter: I am a student on the east coast. What awesome, cheap and educational things can I do this winter break?
Big factor: must be somewhere warm down south.

I am a landscape architecture student interested in urban design. I was hoping to do a winter study abroad in Mexico, however, they are all prohibitively expensive even with a scholarship. ($4 grand for 1.5 weeks) I was revved up to go to this trip thinking I'd get a hefty scholarship, unfortunately, this was not the case.
I have never been south of Florida and would love to do something like design/build or just educational in general. I don't speak Spanish and I don't have a lot of money but I do have a serious case of the travel bug.
What programs or activities do you recommend? Hopefully it's not too late to apply to some things....
