Spring Breakers in Mahahual

It is that time of year again, spring break in Mahahual.  This week, and for the next two weeks, there will be a lot of cruise ships stopping here loaded with college students from the USA on spring break.  This is one of my favorite times of the year here in Mahahual. There are college students from universities and colleges all over the southern part of the USA.  There are also students from northern states as well, but the majority of the spring breakers we get are from the deep south part of the USA.

They get off the cruise ships ready to party.  I remember when I worked for Shark Tours at the port, we had a special all you could drink package, and we used to sell that out during spring break.  It was like $35.00 usd for an open bar at the Senor Frogs on the beach.   It has a pool, and a swim up bar, which the college students love.

When I was working at the port I would meet college students from all over the USA, and I was surprised at how many college students take cruises on spring break now. When I was in college, Fort Lauderdale and Daytona Beach were big college spring break destinations.  In those days that is where you went, we never even considered booking a cruise, nor could we afford it.

My buddies and I in college would usually pool our money together, load up a car and head for Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  We would sleep 5 or 6 to a room, and party for a week in Myrtle Beach.  We would meet other college and university students from other schools like North Carolina State, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Georgia, and other schools in the southeast part of the USA.

Now college students show up here with lots of money, credit cards, and are ready to cut loose.  Different times, we could barely put $10 together in my college days.  But I have to admit it, these young college students know how to have a good time.

And like every year before, as soon as the party gets started the young female college students start dancing on the bar.  I see it every year, and it is a sight to see.

Well this year I just happened to look over, and at that moment I saw a woman fall off the bar while she was dancing, right on her back on the ground.  I thought to myself, this does not look good.  Well the music stopped, all the woman’s friends ran up to her to see if she was all right.  She laid there for a while, then jumped up, and the crowd went wild, and then they all just went back to partying.  She seemed all right, and went back to drinking, I bet she was sore the next day.

Also like every year since I have been here, I always meet pretty little female co-eds from the University of South Carolina, my alma mater.  This year was no exception.  I met some yesterday, and I found them a place for lunch.  There were some South Carolina and Virginia Tech students here together.  I got them a table at the Blue Kay, and chatted with them a while.

So next week there will be even more college students here, because the majority of the colleges and universities in the USA start spring break next week.  So it should be an interesting two weeks ahead for Mahahual.  And trust me, every Mexican man in town loves spring break, just as much as I do.  There is nothing quite like seeing hundreds of young female college students in bikinis running around the malecon.
