Lonely Planet travel writer Robert Reid recently shared his thoughts about travel safety in Mexico asking the question, “Are Americans Safer in Mexico than at Home?” In the article he quotes a number of crime statistics, makes comparisons between major U.S. cities and popular tourist destinations in Mexico and notes that,
“What you don’t get from most reports in the US is statistical evidence that Americans are less likely to face violence on average in Mexico than at home, particularly when you zero in on Mexico’s most popular travel destinations.”
What are your thoughts about safety in Mexico? Do you agree with the author?
