It doesn't make any sense. Why go to Mexico, when the US destinations are just fine and comparably priced (even cheaper by my estimation): Myrtle Beach, Daytona Beach, Panama City Beach, Lake Havasu, South Padre Island, etc.

Well intentioned drinking laws raised the drinking age to 21.

So now the students simply go to Mexico where its 18.

Just another example of the law of unintended consquences.

now instead of protecting "kids" from drinking, they go to Mexico where they are in much more danger.

Yes it does. The legal drinking age in Mexico is 18, while it's 21 in the US. The average collage student is under 21.

Ah, but have you been to Matamoros for a evening?

I have got a great story, but decorum prevents me from repeating it here...

Also, there is just something fun about going to Mexico. Once a year or so I still go to Progresso to shop. The kids like to hang out there. Unfortunately many are naive and think and act like they are still in the US. They don't understand that they can be targeted and arrested , with parents having to pay big bail or be kidnapped for who knows what kind of bad stuff.

Because the diving in Cozumel is some of the best in the world? That's why I go.
