Mexico Pt 6: SPRING BREAK!

One of my biggest wishes is that I’d had a chance to go to college in America. Don’t get me wrong – I loved my university experience and I wouldn’t give it up for anything – I’m just spoilt, I want both! I’ve probably just watched too many shows on MTV, but I think the college life in America looks so much fun. We didn’t deliberately time our holiday in Cancun to coincide with Spring Break, but, when in Rome…

After a day of relaxing in the sunshine, recovering from our island adventures, I put on my little black dress and we headed down to try out the nightlife – after having (maybe a few more than) a few drinks in our hotel room looking out at the gorgeous view below.

If you’ve been to any of the typical European holiday resorts (which I have!), Cancun is a completely different scene– fewer bars, more proper clubs, and it’s not cheap either. We started with dinner – I think you can tell I’m maybe slightly tipsy, and that the margarita bigger than my head probably wasn’t entirely helping…

We had some Mexican food... and some more drinks... 

Afterwards, we headed to one of the many clubs – I honestly can’t remember the name! 

And ordered cocktails in plastic cups nearly as tall as us!

It was a really fun night – although bizarrely at one point the DJ handed out candles and made everyone dance to Queen’s ‘Bohemain Rhapsody’ – if there was some reason behind this, then I didn’t catch what it was!

The next morning we recovered from our hangovers splashing in the pool…

And having a couple of morning cocktails!

I really love having a pool bar - makes such a difference!

We then went for a walk along the beach, which led us to a Spring Break beach party!

In some areas it’s, err, quite apparent that American people under the age of 21 aren’t used to drinking, but it was still really fun and gave me a little taste of what a college experience might be like!

If any of you American readers have Spring Break posts, link them below – I’d love to see what everyone got up to!
