@Sophiaone95 Hi there!
My husband and I also got engaged in Playa del Carmen and loved it so much we moved here! So now we're wedding photographers here
I just want to assure you that it's SAFE! I've lived here for over a year and I feel much safer in Mexico than I did in Oklahoma (where we're from). The biggest crime in Playa del Carmen is bike theft. I've had my bike over a year too, with no problems!
I wanted to give you a link to an article on safety statistics for tourists in Mexico for you to read or give your family members: http://www.banderasn...e-is-mexico.htm
There's another really great in depth one, that I just can't find now... it seems to have disappeared from the internets... if I find it I'll post
Poor old mexico, gets a bad rap. But assure your family, if you're not here to get in trouble, you'll be perfectly fine - and I'm not just saying that to get your business down here I love Mexico!
