    I don't think I'd recommend it as a tourist destination, it's an industrial town built on factories, not really much to see there anyway. My point is not to let the media hype scare you away if you have legitimate business there, or in my case, friends or family.

    But you know what, I would recommend going there for the food. I'd say the flautas and chiles rellenos and the mexican candy were totally worth taking a bullet for. Not gonna lie.

    Damn cut and paste..in response to Soj, I also said that if you go to trip advisor and read reviews for Juarez hotels near the border, there's a lot of comments from business travelers on their own about how it's surprisingly safer than they expected and not as scary. All I'm saying is that it's not really as scary as the media would have you believe.

    My husband and I honeymooned in Cancun in 1991 and we were considering going back next spring for our 20 year anniversary, but now we are considering going elsewhere because we don't want to be stuck just in the hotel zone. When we were there in 1988, 89 & 91 one of the things we liked to do the most was go into downtown Cancun and visit the small, less touristy restaurants.

    Anyone know how things are in Puerto Vallarta and Cabo?

    About 10 years ago a coworker of my husband who was an executive at one of the Big 3 here in Detroit was kidnapped in Mexico city for almost 2 weeks and was repeatedly gang raped by a drug gang. They managed to get him even though he had a driver/guard with him. Scary. Though living in the burbs of Detroit I often ask myself why I'm so scared to go to certain places when my own area has so much violent crime. I guess it just comes down to being less at risk on your own turf because generally speaking you know where to go, what to avoid, etc. and don't look like a fish out of water.

    ^^True, but insulting the residents with racist comments is probably not a good idea either.

    I went to Cabo last year, it was fine, it's still developing with a lot of construction going on. Plus it's pretty isolated from the rest of Mexico, so I think that's a big reason why it felt a lot safer.

    I'm thinking of going to Puerto Vallarta this fall too.

    Where did someone make a 'racist' comment? I do not see it.

    Where is this 'racist' comment exactly? Can someone point out the 'racist' part?

    i really want to travel all around mexico but it's huge, you'd need months. i'd love to start by travelling around the yucatán peninsula (because it's a tourist trap, not because of shootings), it's supposed to be a natural paradise. i also want to see the cenotes and caves.
