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.
