Spring break is traditionally a time of study leave in preparation for the start of the fourth term. However, in America and even Canada the week-long spring break has become synonymous with parties, relaxation and a last chance to let loose before the final slog toward the final exam period a few months later in May. During spring break revelers from across North America descend upon the beaches of Mexico, as well as other beaches in the region, for a week-long party. Visitors to Mexican resorts (Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, and Acapulco in particular) during March should expect hoards of university students, loud beach parties and copious amounts of drinking.
