Is it actually 'safe' to travel in Mexico with all the cartels in control and the corruption of government officials?

Seems to me from what I have heard, traveling in Mexico is like playing Russian roulette. You may be fine for a while then life as you know it could drastically change.

We were thinking about going there, but decided not to go after some research.

Your biggest safety concerns will come from those that have never been there and spend too much time reading the news. Chuck


That was helpful, thanks Chuck.

We traveled throughout the Atlantic Coast area from the US to Belize and never had any issues and never felt unsafe. We did avoid major cities. But we avoid major cities in the US. Chuck

It's all a matter of comfort and being smart. Many of the posters on this forum live and/or travel extensively in Mexico or both. Personally, I am very safety conscious wherever we travel, and have had no issues in either the US or Mexico. We do, however, feel more comfortable in Mexico.

I'm with you Talleyho69. Even though we live just south of the border we still get a little uneasy when we have to go North of the border. A lot less stress here, slower pace of life (we still work) all in all it was our best decision 13 years ago to move here.
