Caution in Mexico

Jump to last reply

About three weeks ago several travelers said Mexico was completly safe except around the high crime drug areas. I differed with them but they would not back down. Today the Wall Street Journel reports on the State Dept. high and modest safety risk areas for Americans in Mexico. Extreme caution areas include Aculpulco, Mazattan, etc. Resort Areas with strong "posted warnings" included but not limited to include Cancun, Tulum, Puerta, Vallarta (the one I sighted), Baja (South CA) and 6 others. I am not sure what the criteria the State Dept. used but knowing they want to maintain positve relations with Mexico they did not issue this information without significant data to support their finding I would assume.
What I learned from this is I am probably advised to go to a compound like resort and not wander, especially at night, without someone from the hotel staff.
