  • Wedding: June 2009

I just wanted to add my oppinion.  I just got back from Cancun.  We were nervous about the recent happenings and decided to stay mostly on the resort.  However we did go out (only to tourist areas) a day or two.  I’ve been there for the past 8 years and everything seems the same, except added military and police patrol. 

I think it’s okay to visit Mexico in the tourist areas like Cancun, but!.. 

As with anywhere you go: make sure you are with someone else at all times (groups of people is preferred of course); be aware of your surroundings; and make wise decisions (don’t travel out of the tourist area, don’t wander off by yourself, and don’t talk to strangers!).

That being said, if we didn’t have a timeshare there we probably would have avoided it just because of all the news hype.  However, there is crime anywhere you go, just be safe and use common sense.

  • Wedding: August 2009

We have been debating between St. Lucia and Cabo. We REALLY want to go to St. Lucia but our wedding is in August which means not taking a honeymoon right away after our honeymoon (which we REALLY WANT TO DO) due to Hurricane season. The other option would be Mexico but I have become horrified with things that have been happening in Mexico… decapitaed bodies in Tijuana – the murder rate is rising so quickly. I just don’t wang to have that dooming over my head… I would warn everyone to do the same!!! BE SAFE!
