Alcohol — México
The legal drinking age in México is 18, but it is rarely enforced. Excessive drinking and public drunkenness by tourists is a significant problem, particularly in border cities and resort areas like Cancún during spring break. Méxicans do not find public drunkenness by foreigners amusing. It is also against the law and could land you in jail. Drinking to excess, particularly when you are alone, leaves you vulnerable to violent crime. Be especially careful in border cities where there have been numerous cases of drunk foreigners being attacked, robbed, or raped.
