Spring Break

Spring Break

Is Cancun the new Woodstock? This Mexican resort is a favourite spring-break destination for American students.

Traditionally, this is Easter holidays, but not all American university students can be in Cancun at the same time, as its beaches and hotels are booked for weeks. Especially now, since Spring Break has become a Canadian and European university tradition as well. Anyone over 25 beware! Kids who have been on the academic grind relax by partying at the beach. And they get their vitamin boost under the sun for two days and two nights of concerts and uninterrupted RPGs. Spring Break isn't new: it started in 1926 when the first public Olympic pool was built in Fort Lauderdale, and has since been celebrated in movies and songs.
