I posted a similar question not too long ago. A few of the brides stated that they were impressed with the security at the resort. Most of the street violence that is occurring in Mexico is at the border towns; however a few incidents have happened in some of the tourists areas. Unfortunately the news has blown those incidents out of proportion. To me, the incidents that have happened in the tourists town compares to incidents happening in a bad part of Oakland, it only takes a turn down the wrong street and you're subject to the fire zone. To say that because an incident happened in Oakland, it's going to happen at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay is just as ridiculous as saying the violence occurring in areas of Mexico is going to happen at Now Jade, a freaking 5 star resort where there is security patrolling the perimeter of the resort.
Below is a link to an article which you can share with your FIL's, not sure how much it will help, but it does describe the perfect serene setting.
I'm sorry I don't have much else for you. If Mexico is so bad and Now Jade wasn't safe, then why would there be so many weddings booked, in addition to the rooms at the resort? I shared quite a bit of information and addressed my FIL's concerns, when they barely voiced their concerns...sadly here I am 4 months before the wedding date and my FMIL and FFIL have just informed us that they will not be attending the wedding. Whatever decision you make, make it with your FH after you have both honestly weighed out all the options. Ultimately, it's about you two and what you two want. If you're willing to accept the FIL's not attending the wedding, then do it. If you can't, then it's probably best to look at alternatives.

I was wondering if you could give me advise as far as easing some of their fear/ doubts about traveling to mexico? I'd appreciate the help! Thanks in advance...
