The U.S. State Department is warning college students across the country not to spend spring break in certain parts of Mexico, where rampant crime has made travel dangerous for Americans.
The warning comes as students are finishing up midterm exams and heading out in search of warmer climes, salty margaritas and wild parties. But Mexico, once among the most popular spring break destinations, is plagued with endemic levels of violence, according to the government.
- So, if you want to have a safe and really bitchin’ spring break…. Go someplace that nobody cares if you act totally ridiculous, and openly do drugs, and get drunk, and take a dump in a doorway, and then pass out in the street. Someplace like the Bay Area, perhaps?
But then again, the spring weather is pretty nice in Baja….
