@mandypop There have been a few things in the news lately about things happening to Canadain tourist when they go to Mexico so that is probably why most Canadians in this post are a bit more weary then others.
@cali_cat I actually just laughed out loud at my desk at work about your post. I totally understand what you are saying. People dont want to come where I live even because it is so badly portrayed in the media in my city!!
@firecutie What resort are you getting married at in Mexico next year? (if you dont mind me asking) I was looking at Adventura Cove

Obviously this all comes down to a personal opinion about what you feel safe doing, but I got married in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico last October and we had over 80 guests from all over the world, and I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. Some people acted like we were asking them to go Baghdad, and a few people didn’t go because of it, but that was a risk we were willing to take. Most of Mexico is safe, and much of the media reports are highly exagerrated. I felt safer walking around San Miguel at night than I do San Francisco. We honeymooned in Tulum and felt the same way. To me saying you are not going to go to the Riviera Maya because of violence by the border is the same as saying you won’t travel to Washington because of violence in Texas. The people that matter will be there, so I say stay with Mexico.

Ive been to San Luis Potosi and San miguelle Allende…I second Serena, in that I feel safter walking those streets than back home here in Seattle.
Yes, Mexico has it’s issues indeed, but it doesn’t make the entire country a cestpool.
