Spring Break 4/6 - 4/15?

Will we be overcome by spring breakers the week of 4/6-4/15? Just want to know what to prepare for.

Thanks!

No, spring break is over. There might be a few stragglers, but the big event was mid-March.

No to spring breakers but you will probably encounter many Mexican Nationals as Semina Santa (Holy Week) is always busy on the island.

Forgot about Semana Santa, but I think that is over April 8th, but I don't know how long they generally stay on the island. The merchants are hoping for big crowds since I read that Spring Break sales were pretty weak....

As already stated, spring break is pretty much over.

Semana Santa should keep the island pretty busy, however. School aged Mexicans have two entire weeks off from school, so there will be a lot of families out there..

Prepare fpr a nice trip. Lots of great resturants. Time on the beach if you enjoy that. Comfortable walkingshoes if you plan on shopping in Mexico. Have a nice and restful stay on SPI
