Spring Break 2010, ¡Feliz Semana Santa!

Can't get to Cancun or Acapulco this year?
Here's a photo, video, and blog update from the beaches...

Looks like Mexico's spring break king — Cancun — is rebounding quickly from last year's triple blow to its tourism industry caused by the flu epidemic, drug violence and a global economic crisis.

Those worries couldn't compete this year against Mexico's cheap airfare from the United States and phenomenal package deals that include the popular all-you-can-drink enticements.

To counter the bad news, the Pacific coast resort of Acapulco in drug-plagued Guerrero state paid MTV $200,000 for the network to host its spring party there this year. The city expects to draw between 7,000 to 10,000 spring breakers despite the resort's sporadic drug killings and gun battles...

Some U.S. universities warned students headed for Mexico about drug-related violence, prompting some to cancel already paid for spring break trips.
