For the most part, I think wearing ponchos, sombreros, red/white/green, mariachi costumes, or even something like the iconic (in Latin culture) purple sparkley catsuit-type outfit that Selena made famous would be appropriate choices for a Fiesta-themed party IN GENERAL. Now, when you add in alcohol and 18-22 year olds, there's no way it's not going to "go there". Basically, limit your "fiesta" theme to serving tacos and margaritas and some genric decorations and call it a day. I would also advise against piņatas, for the fact of drunk people being told to swing a large stick blindfolded is not going to end well.
