Spring! Yes, this week we sprang right into Spring and Semana Santa is just about to start.  If you’ve ever wanted to get the full flavor of Semana Santa, from bandas across the malecón to overflowing beaches, now is the time – well, Easter weekend is the busiest time of the year!  Schools get out this weekend as we launch officially into Semana Santa (Holy Week), culminating next weekend – then followed by Semana de Pasqua (Easter Week).  Oh, and as we glide through Spring don’t forget the biggest concert of the summer – tickets for Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers 2018 Circus Mexicus are now available.
