    Mexico Travel???

    I have the opportunity to pick up a couple cruise vouchers that go through Cozumel Mexico VERY VERY cheap. I keep hearing and reading about warning not to go to Mexico right now.

    Does anyone have any opinions or recent experience with Traveling to Mexico?

    Gabe? I know you live in Mexico City, what are your thoughts????

    Stay away from borders, cozumel is a TINY island with no issues that i have heard.

    July I am on Norweig. Cruise lines that will deport from NAWLINS (New Orleans) and go to cozumel/belize/etc.

    Its very dangerous, dont go and send me the tickets. I will give you a full report of whether its safe or not when i get back

    No I live in Tucson, Mexico and I don't really notice anything in my day to day life. You hear a few stories but nothing that doesnt happen in other cities downtowns and stuff. The border is really bad in some locations, but Ive crossed the border several times and have never been close to feeling threatened. There are alot of unsafe places there right now, but resorts and cozumel should be completely safe.

    mexico city, cancun/cozumel/playa del carmen, los cabos all safe as can be.

    the only danger in mexico is the border towns, and i dont know anybody who goes to them ever.

    I used to work on a cruise ship and was in Cozumel every second week for a couple years. It's a nice little island and you have nothing to worry about as far as safety is concerned. Make sure to go on a dive if you go there!

    Nice. My girlfriend and I are actually going on a cruise this Saturday for a week and we are going to Cozumel, Costa Maya and Haiti! I'm a dive instructor so definately be doing some diving. Cozumel is all drift diving so it's pretty awesome.
