ABSOLUTLELY STAY AWAY FROM MEXICOS CLEAR BLUE OCEAN WATER AND WHITE SANDY BEACHES WHERE THE CANTINAS BEERS ARE HALF THE PRICE OF SOUTH PADRE ISLANDS.

I agree with Gene, Just before you go make a will, a goodby note to your parents and Write your SS number on your arm and leg with a sharpie so you can be ID'ed when they dig you from one of those mass graves. Which will be better an armpit or rotting body next to you in a mass grave

Students wouldn't have to go to Mexico or other countries if the USA wasn't so restrictive. The reason those countries are fun is because you drink, party all night, and go to the beachin the nude.

Here, bars are tightly regulated (they close early, can't smoke, and drinks are expensive), the drinking age is 21, and you can forget about nude beaches.

I didn't know they found mass graves in Miami? Seriously though, just don't come, we don't care in fact it's better without you since they are lowering prices to attract more people, we just keep winning. Spent a weekend in Cancun two weeks ago and heading for a weekend in Cozumel in two weeks. Spent all day today at an international women's tennis tournament here in Monterrey, even chatting with our american competitors. Kind of enjoying the fact that only educated Canadians and Americans are coming here....improves the ambiance.

You have to be naive if you don't believe the only reason they are warning this is to scare people to the crap Texas beaches.

Enjoy Miami, but don't go out after dark and South Padre is lovely, for an hour.
