    Revelry: Cancun is regularly one of the top picks for American Spring-Breakers and is said to be the most popular choice of destination for students this yearRead more:
    Spring Break chaos has arrived early in Mexico’s Cancun this year with American college students already beginning their revelry across the resort.

Hundreds of students have been pictured starting the party early in the Mexican city today, drinking heavily and dancing the night away with marines on patrol to ensure no one gets too carried away.

This year Cancun was found to be the number one destination for students looking to enjoy the typically wild week-long holiday which doesn’t usually get going until March.

As student advice website Student City says, visitors shouldn’t be expecting a quiet time: ‘In Cancun, the party never stops, so you may want to choose your spring break hotel based on the noise-level. Chances are that if you don’t choose a quiet one, you’ll just be up for 7 days straight. And that may not be a bad thing for some of you.’

However, no matter how many of them there are, it seems the party-goers won’t be able to escape the long arm of the law.

Mexican Navy Marines were pictured patrolling the popular nightclubs of the city yesterday starting a season where on average 45,000 people will visit the resort.

The local tourist board is keen to maintain safety in the area, particularly amid fears in Mexico that tourism will decrease as a result of violence in the tourist town of Acapulco.

Six Spanish women holidaying there earlier this month were tied by their bikinis and raped and robbed by a gang of men.

There have been six arrests in connection to the incident.

Jesus Almagauer, chief executive of the Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau, said Cancun was not a city struggling to keep the peace.

‘Last year Cancun welcomed almost 4 million visitors, and while none of our tourists were victims of violent crimes, we understand that safety is always a concern when traveling to a foreign country,’ he told the LA Times.

‘In response to that concern, and in an effort to dispel any misconceptions about the destination, we always amplify our security protocol during peak travel times to ensure the safety of every person visiting us. [Cancun] has better safety records than most major U.S. cities.’

Last year the Department for Public Safety in Texas sparked a row with Mexican authorities for advising against travel to the resort – for the third year running.

They said violence between rival drug gangs as well as other crime posed safety issues for tourists.
