    It's an American thang, you won't find much going on here. I'm sure some places with embrace the American culture (lol) but it's not really something to celebrate here. It's a day to remember the battle at Puebla so Puebla will have some events, but not really much going on in Cancun.

    Here's a good history of Cinco de Mayo.... http://www.mexonline.com/cinco-de-mayo.htm

    We were there last year, and never noticed a thing about Cinco......agree with CC and the rest. A day for americans to drink tequilla and eat at their favorite mexican restaurant!

    Sounds like the distillers have learned from the florists how to create a holiday.
    You gotta love capitalism.
