      That is so funny b/c all of my relatives are saying how dangerous it is in Cancun and we live about 3.5 hrs drive from Juarez.

          I just got back last night from Riviera Maya to check out the resort for our wedding... We did see heavier police forces along the highway, but we were fine... the Canadians kept telling us the U.S. media was scaring us... we met many Canadians, many Europeans, and a small handful of Americans who were also told they were crazy by various people to visit Mexico. I do believe that people should take caution, like, do not travel alone on roads at night... (but I wouldn't do that in the bad cities where I live now!)... Something we need to remember, as that article stated, is that the tourism industry keeps this area of Mexico alive... There are thousands of workers who work at the resorts, hundreds of drivers from the airport... they depend on the tourism money... I also spoke to some of the people who live there (my Spanish skills were right on, all came flooding back, so weird!!!) They said it is bad by the U.S. border, and I even joked that we should not be "estupido" and be "cuidado" in what we do... so, we were sad to come home!!! So nice!!!

              I guess it is less safe that it used to be. But seriously there is a shooting like every minute in the US. So why does someone getting shot in Cancun freak everyone out?

                Yeah, I agree....There is TONS of crime in the U.S.-not to mention gangs, etc. and people should realize that there is violence everywhere--I am frustrated. If some of my guests use this as an excuse I really don't care b/c it will be more fun without them. I don't want worry warts dictating what we should do in Mexico!!! I am planning on going to town in Playa and going to Cozumel. =)

                  Good for you! You should enjoy your wedding and honeymoon without hearing complaints from people. I think that people are uncomfortable b/c it is a foreign country and most do not know the language. Now if they start abducting tourist maybe we will all have something to worry about.
