Mexico Spring Break Alert

The US State Department is warning college and high school students on going to Mexico for Spring Break.  Spring Break for many Universities comes in just a few weeks and students will be planning their trips to places such as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Rosarito Beach, Cabo San Lucas, and Acapulco.  The beaches, warm weather, hotties, clubs, non-stop drinking, and being able to drink under 21 are definitely the temptation of going to Mexico over going snow skiing or staying at home and being bored.

The travel alert is pretty serious due to the escalated violence near the border in Mexico.  Tijuana and northern Baja California have had spikes lately in violent crimes.

Ciudad Juarez, Tijuana and Nogales are among the cities which have recently experienced public shootouts during daylight hours in shopping centers and other public venues.  Criminals have followed and harassed U.S. citizens traveling in their vehicles in border areas including Nuevo Laredo, Matamoros, and Tijuana. –

If you are planning on going to Mexico for the clubs consider Canada for the 19+ drinking just make sure you bring a coat.  Then again you could consider Orlando and Tampa which are warm and have good clubs and most of them are 18 to enter but 21 to drink.
