12 Jan. 2018 – The State Department is a wee bit slow on issuing this major travel warning, but its out now. We’ve known how bad it is for many months through tourist reports, but now the State Department has confirmed it. Look at the picture above. The whole freaking country of Mexico is a cesspool of crime and corruption. Let me get right to the bottom line: There is NO safe place for you and the kids, okay? The State Dept. should have included a half dozen Central and South American countries too. Like, do not even get off the ship in Panama, you are just asking for trouble.
So, if you are planning a trip to Mexico, be smart and forget it. The crime is rampant, touristas are just another $$ target down there, from kidnapping to being cheated at a store or restaurant.
Wise up, stay safe, stay home and spend your money in America.
