Wondering if it’s safe to travel to Mexico? It is safe! The hub of scenic beauty, pristine beaches, vibrancy, ruins and inspiring culture Mexico remains one of the most oft-visited countries despite being rumored as a death-trap. Tourists are wary of the risks they may encounter, but we beg you to reconsider. Pack your bags, but before you leave-here are some tips on how to travel safely in Mexico!

Years of drug-cartels, trafficking, and violence have caused the US Department of State to issue a travel advisory to Mexico. But with the evolving times, Mexico has risen as a beautiful phoenix hosting an amalgamation of natural beauty and daily-life. Plan your trip in advance and only visit the safest destinations. We recommend visiting Cozumel, San Miguel de Allende, Mazatlan, and wonderful beach resorts such as Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Avoid areas such as Colima, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas that have a higher ratio of violence. The charm of distant vacation rentals in tourist areas will always be a great choice, but some people opt for an all-inclusive resort or hotel.  The same goes for cruises. Just pay a onetime fee for food and entertainment, which would be considerably safer and convenient too.

Leave all your belongings and gadgets back home to not attract unnecessary attention. Carry your cash in a money-belt or somewhere safe and always keep duplicates of your important documents. Opt for public transports instead of taxis and don’t go wandering off in shady or less-crowded areas. Stick to bottled water and always double-check the food that tempts you; make sure it’s fresh and hot. Party lovers might want to watch how much they drink for you don’t want robbers or kidnappers to take advantage of you when you are under the influence!

Most of all, practice diligence as you enjoy a lifetime experience in this beautiful destination!
