Safety in Cuilican, Hermosillo, Cananea

Jump to last reply

My husband and brother are hoping to do some ancestry research in Mexico (Mexican born parents, sons born in USA).

I'm a little concerned about the safety of the trip they are planning. They would like to visit Culiacan (where their mother was born) and travel to Hermosillo (where records are kept for Cananea where they think their father was born).

Are there still fake cops, carjackings, etc...all that worrisome stuff going on? These areas (at least Culiacan) have suffered from the cartels in recent years, and Hermosillo and Cananea are not exactly tourist hot spots. They would need to drive or take a bus between these cities.

I hate to be alarmist and I myself went to Prague when there were Russian tanks still circling the city...but I was young and foolish back then!

Our relatives are not in these cities anymore, so we don't have anyone local to ask. My husband is also going to call the US consulate in Hermosillo at my request, but I've gotten great advice from local experts on Fodors in the past on a whole variety of issues.

Muchas gracias.
