    HI, Jason.

    Mark Twain wrote that "there are 3 kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics."

    That being said, and knowing that figures don't lie but liars can figure, my very own S.W.A.G. is that about 25,000 springbreakers came to Cancun last year during the 6-week period.

    It has been going down since its peak about 6 years agao when about 120,000 showed up. Reasons vary for the decline--everything from other destinations promoting the market, the springbreakers themselves getting tired of Cancun, hotels raising prices,etc.

    I have some numbers from the papers filed somehwere and will look for them---not that they are anymore reliable than my own failing memory.

    Mexican Immigration Stats are here:
    http://www.inm.gob.mx/paginas/710000.htm

    You can find general info about how many foreigners entered through the Cancun airport on the INM site. Unfortunately the web site is poorly designed and throws a lot of page not found errors.

    According to people I know in immigration about 2/3 of the foreigners entering Mexico through the Cancun airport lately are heading south to the Riviera Maya, and about 1/3 report that they are staying in Cancun.

    For the year or so after Wilma 9 out of every 10 foreigners entering through the Cancun airport was going to the Riviera Maya. But now Cancun is rebounding some and a larger percentage of the foreigners are staying in Cancun.
