    In the coastal areas in the South you can walk around even as a girl at night. Harrassment, yes, violence no. We didn't get robbed either.

    I only felt unsafe in the port cities of Honduras. Their public transportation and taxi system is dodgy and their authorities, too. We had a lot of shit happening to us. Same with El Salvador, practically no police.

    Everything else was fine, though. I loved Guatemala, I keep raving about it. We got shaken down there, too, but all in all it was very laid-back. Nicaragua was fine, too. Some people say Belize is boring, but to me it was like Jamaica, I loved it. Cool rastafari people taking us home, great local parties. I digress.

    Compared to Africa, Central America is a family resort. Yes, there is crime, but if you look dirty and sweaty like us, no one bothers you significantly.
    I might compare old cancum with honduras then. That's what I experienced

    No, you did that all on your own.

    Why do some people think that the world should be made to please them.
    You visit a place,you are the one to fit in.
    Sorry but you want all English speaking and stuff,you stay put and enjoy!
    The whole world is my playground,i intent to see as much of it as i can,i will be quite happy to face and overcome anything!Playgrounds according to statistics are VERY dangerous for the kids,that doesnt stop mothers taking their kids out to play.
    There is a policy for US goverment to keep the dollar spent inside the country.
    Maybe that is why Americans dont travel that much!

    Cancun didn't appear dangerous to me at all. I shlepped my stuff half through town, when we arrived at the bus terminal late at night.
    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!

    You did not imply it. Certain people inferred it(incorrectly so IMO).

    Pretty much. Yes they are twisting what you are saying, making implications about what you said that are not true(according to you), and also according to what I took from your statement. And no, they won't admit they did anything wrong at all.

    I don't think it is fair either.

    It does not imply racism IMO. Put that racist card back in the deck please.

    I'm talking about old cancun,this was a few years ago. Maybe its better now. We do concun and cozumel fairly often because its close but haven't made it back to the old section so nkt sure its the same or not

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the part some may have taken as racist. You were essentially saying you, with your "blond hair blue eyes" stuck out like a sore thumb.

    Not siding with anyone here, but I'm guessing that was what got some feathers ruffled.
