Semana Santa 2009

Semana Santa 'Easter' runs from about the fifth thru the eighteenth, or fifteen days. Semana Santa is the second busiest holiday after Christmas and usually all the winter vacationing gringos are gone. They leave because the weather is getting warmer and to avoid the massive crowds of Mexicans on this very busy holiday.

I've seen the beach busier during this time but still a lot of people .... and it's only Friday.

It appears the beaches will appear lonely when I arrive on the 22nd or 23rd.

Yikes - waaaay too many people for me. I guess as a soltero it might present opportunities for Steve ;-)
