Is it Safe to Travel to Mexico?

Island Isla Mujeres, Mexico

I was a bit puzzled when I read a few days ago the Texas Department of Public Safety once again advises vacationers to avoid traveling to Mexico for spring break. Although no formal advisory was issued this year, officials made it clear through media outlets that “the stance has not changed” and violence is still prevalent.

As I wrote around this time last year, we can’t deny that the drug-related terror and violence doesn’t exist. It does and it is tragic. However, I can still say, with 100 percent certainty, that I still feel safe in Mexico.

Even the U.S. State Department, in its latest Mexico traveling warning, gave the green light to tourists. From Cabo to Cancun, from San Miguel de Allende and Leon to Chichen Itza, the calm of Mexican culture awaits. Indecently, this last report broke down each region in Mexico, giving travelers a zoomed-in look at potential threats state-by-state. Regardless, State says that resort destinations are safe.

I have a client that takes his company’s President’s Club to Mexico every year. Overall, the service at some of the more luxurious Mexican resorts far surpasses that of the Bahamas and Caribbean. Mexico is beautiful, affordable, accessible, hassle-free and, most of all, safe.
