Mexico: Help Me Get Over My Fears!

Jump to last reply

Ok....I will say it. Mexico scares me. Why am I nervous about going to Mexico? Because of:

1. The high crime rate that typically appears to involve unprovoked attacks on tourists.

2. The high rate of illness from food and water.

There! I have said it!

Yet my fears seem to be unfounded because hundreds of thousands of people enjoy Mexico every year. So, I need to get over my fears. Can you help me do that?

My family wants a spectacular beach holiday and Mexico seems perfect ( except for my hesitation as outlined above). If you agree, can you pls suggest what part of Mexico would be best for a beach holiday for us? Looking for luxury property/resort. Golf would be nice, but not essential, for this trip.

Thanks!
