Mexican Drug Violence Sparks a War on Spring Break

Universities and parents, not to mention travel agencies that straight up canceled trips, have discouraged college students from heading south of the border for their Spring breaks this year. While the warnings aren't stopping students from heading to places like Cancún, resort towns close to the border are being hit not only by violence but also by a decrease in tourism revenue.

After more than 6,000 people died last year in Mexico from drug violence, places like Palm Springs are wooing Spring breakers to their hotels, bars, and pools. Lucky them?

Just another reason for the saying: Good (in this case very tall) Fences make good neighbors.

why would you go to a place like juarez for spring break? i'd rather stay home in the snow!

Also, it's April. Aren't 95% of college/university spring breaks in March? ;)

Even parts of Phoenix aren't safe as a result of this drug war. Scary! :(
