    Default Re: Now is not a good time to go to Mexico ...

    I have been to Mexico well over 20 times. I've been to the tip of Baja (Cabo San Lucas), to the west coast (Guamas, Los Mochis, Mazatlan, San Blas, Acapulco, Ixtapa, and Puerto Vallarta) and to Cancun. I've even driven through the interior and been to Mexico City.

    But that was then and this is now and unfortunately, it is not safe. It is not only violence. It is also spiked drinks and resorts that knowingly use bootlegged liquor made in unregulated stills.

    The story was broken by a Wisconsin newspaper that investigated several reports of Wisconsin citizens who were drugged, robbed and died due to spiked drinks in all inclusive resorts. Mexican police refused to investigate and the US consulate was of no help. You are on your own. Finally the publicity was too much and Mexican authorities seized 10,000 gallons of bad booze in just 31 bars and hotels. That is over 320 gallons at each location! How about the hundreds of hotels and bars that were not raided. Finally the USA issued travel warning about tainted booze.

    I have literally spent 10s of thousands of $$$ in Mexico but no more until they make it safe for me and my family to visit. If you are not safe drinking in your all inclusive resort, where are you safe. Abbey thought she was safe.

    This is more evidence that we need a new president. This announcement is purely political in nature. Trump is trying to pressure Mexico, and trying to convince the under-informed US citizens that we need a wall on the Mexican border, which is not the case. The wall needs to be built around the White House.
