Re: Mexico. Go or no go?

FWIW I too have traveled up and down the baja many times both on the Pacific side and the Del Mar de Cortez. Both on boats and on land. Been going there for over 40 years. Mainland too. Had plenty of dealings with the Federales and local police. Hell I even partied real hard one night with a full blown Federal Helicopter pilot. I know he was because he said he was going to visit us on the beach the next day-in the helicopter. And he did. Anyway my point is I've never had a major problem in Mexico. Lucky? Probably. But I'm not staying away. San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Juarez, Mexico yes I'll stay away. Baja? Nope.

Re: Mexico. Go or no go?

We have had our boat in Mexico for about 4 years now and find the country very friendly and in general feel very safe. Caution is required in any urban areas, and those in Mexico are not an exception.

A very good article about this topic can be found on the following site for those who really want to research the current situation.
