Help - I need updated info of PV
Posted 24 August 2009 - 08:13 PM
so I was just starting to relax and get excited that all my friends were booked! And then I get a phone call.....
My friend called me just today all freaking out because her parents said she was stupid for going to Mexico at a time like this "with all the violence." etc etc. Now she said even if she went, she would have an anxiety attack because she wouldn't be able relax. Her mom told her that people are going into resorts and killing people etc. Now, I'm afraid my friend is not only going to cancel her trip (oh well), but scare other people to cancelling!!!!!! (my biggest worry...)
Let me start off by saying, I posted an article on my wedding website about "don't worry about the violence" but I need concrete stuff here! I'm sure resorts/vendors on here don't want to lose business and say anything negative, but this is important! Any detail from past brides/recent visitors/people who live down there (Mishka...?) I just need some concrete info to pass on to my friends to put them at ease before this gets out of hand.
I know there have been other posts but I didn't see anything in the PV section...thank everyone! I hope this helps my friends because I just went from super excited to depressed

past brides will be able to give you better advice, but i just want you to know that i hope it all turns out alright and i hope you don't stress about this too much.
you might want to think about talking to your friend to keep her opinions to herself and not go around scaring others...

I feel the more I say, the more it looks like I'm trying to defend something (that doesn't need defending...)you know what I mean? I feel if I just stay cool about it, it will show everyone that there is nothing to worry about!

The US governments site for travel warnings, etc.
The US consulate in PV
Vallarta Consular Agency - U.S. Consulate General Guadalajara, Mexico
IMO: The best advice is to tell people to use common sense. Don't talk to strangers, don't flaunt your money, don't go anywhere that looks sketchy. Same thing they would do if they were visitng NYC or San Fran or Dallas or New Orleans or Toronto or Paris or Lodon....
