Brits hoping to escape the dismal weather in the UK and extend their summer holidays by jetting off to the sunnier climes of Mexico in September are surely likely to be delighted to know that the month is jam-packed with exciting entertainment.
Mexicans celebrate their independence day on September 15th, Whatsonwhen notes, with various celebrations held around the country.
Mexico City, Puerta Vallarta, Cancun, Cozumel and Isla Mujeres are all providing commemorative gatherings on the national day which marks the breakaway from Spanish rule in 1821.
In Cancun, food and craft stalls, music and dancing can be punctuated with tequila drinking for party animals who want to enjoy the Mexican merrymaking ethos.
Cancun is a popular resort with tourists and presents a plethora of unusual nightlife for late night revellers, including Coco Bongo - a club that boasts flying acrobats, live bands, DJs, soap bubbles, confetti streamers and bar-top conga lines.
