Abstract When one thinks of tropical Mexican beaches, especially during the cold months of winter, the names Acapulco, Cancun, Puerto Valla.rta, Manzanillo, and perhaps Mazatlan come to mind. These international resort enclaves - collectively dubbed "Club Mex" by Luis Casagrande in a 1987 article in FOCUS - also irJclude the resort complexes of lxtapa, la Paz, and Puerto Escondido. The beach resorts are popular tourist destinations not only for international tourists - mostly North American and European winter migrar,ts - but also for middle - and upperclass Mexicans who flock to the beaches during summer holidays (mostly August), Christmas, and especially Holy Week (Semana Santa), the week preceeding Easter.
