    I was in Cabo in Fenruary 2011 and we rode the local bus, visited the local shops and markets and even went out one evening. We used common sense and we were just fine, I never felt like I was in any danger. I was in the Mayan riviera this past weekend and it ws very safe there as well. we had appointments to visit a few resorts and we rented a car and drove to and from the resorts. the area was safe and there was no dangerours or concerning behavior during our stay. Our police and sfety system here in the United States can't keep drugs out of our prisons here, so I think people have a unrealstic sense of safety here in the States.We are facing the same issue with guests scared to come. I guess each person must make thier own decision and you will just have to enjoy your day without them.

      I'm from Pittsburgh too! And its funny I am doing them same thing with my family and friends if you are scared stay home. Ill show you pictures. Lil

      I'm not getting married in Mexico but it was one of our choices, we are getting married in jamaica and people are saying the same thing, they are going to get kidnapped/murdered/something along those lines. I think you have to have common sense when traveling anywhere, includin within the US.  I don't know where you live but I'm from Pittsburgh, which in thelast few years has been multiple times been named on forbes list as americas most livable city...well just this week on the news we had a family of three shot to death and a girl missing, which is happening in every city in America, so I don't know what it is about International travel that freaks people out, I just tell them if yo'ure scared stay home, I will send you pics, because if my wedding was happening here they wouldn't be saying anything about murder/drugs/kidnappings....sorry for the rant I just get so annoyed with that comment

        I looked on the US travel bureau website and it has a lot of good points that I shared (ie: it is safer in tourist areas, the borders are where it is least safe, etc.)  That helped some of the people who were worried.

          The resorts are safe.  So if they feel unsafe, they can choose to remain on the hotel premises.
