Mexico 2010 - when is the US Spring Break so I can avoid it?

Hi, I'm planning a two week break in Mexico early in 2010 and want to avoid the height of the Spring Break season in Cancun as I've heard it's worse than Benidorm. Does anyone know the dates involved?

Thanks

What a hoot that Canadian colleges have "Spring" Break in the middle of February!

P.S. - I wonder how many Spring-Breakers visit Chichen Itza.

If you avoid Cancun/Playa del Carmen/Cozemel you will not have much contact with Spring Breakers. They tend to center themselves in AI resorts and do not get into the rest of the Yucatan or Quintana Roo. I have been in Mexico during Spring Break and except for the airport have not seem much of them in Tulum, Merida, Progreso or any sights off the tourist path.

Enjoy
