Puerto Vallarta - drug lords?

Hello! It has been two years since our last trip to PV. I've heard lately, (from people who haven't been there) that there are drug lords causing a lot of trouble in many areas of Mexico. Is PV one of them?

Only if you are buying or selling.

Don't listen to people who haven't been here and believe everything they see in the media.

No.

I know this is a rumor out & about a couple places on the internet lately, but it is NOT true according to people who live in Vallarta.

i live, work and sell tours in puerto vallarta & most of the tourist areas in mexico...cabo, mazatlan, p.v., playa del carmen & cozumel. i travel to all of those places constantly. the only problem we have in any of them is bad publicity, generated by a lot of people up north that are up north. truly unfortunate. we are also suffering from the public hysteria about swine flu, & it has had a double whammy effect on all of us.
this is the time to come visit us, now is when we really need people to come & see for themselves how beautiful, safe & spectacular mexico really is.

mexicofun, So why top this old post? You're hardly helping the cause!! Maybe you could instead start a new post with a postive title for your message? because I couldn't agree more with what you are saying, and it's important to get the word out, but not by bringing up PV Drug Lords which don't exist.

I just returned from a short trip to Puerto Vallarta, where I can say that there wasn't the slightest hint of any drug-related violence. P.V. has been and remains unaffected by the drug problems faced by BORDER towns.
