DPS discourages spring break travel to Mexico

MEXICO Every spring break, students from Texas flock to Mexico's beaches. But lately, the crowds have been smaller.

"Now, I think things are getting a little bit better," said Steve Varela, a student at the University of Texas at El Paso.

The situation has improved over previous spring breaks when violence in some parts of Mexico scared students and their parents.


The Texas Department of Public Safety continues to discourage all spring break travel to Mexico, even to popular tourist resorts that many consider safe.

1. I'd pass on it

Corrupt authorities, kidnapping, rape, murder, etc. Of course some places of the US are pretty rough as well, I avoid those too.
