Is Mexico Safe?

Is Mexico Safe?

safety-of-mexico

Some time ago there was a study with several interesting points made about the security in Mexico and other big countries like Canada and USA. For example did you know that traveling to Mexico is safer than traveling to Bahamas, Brazil, or Jamaica? Or that Mexico is twice as safe then Texas. Or that Sweden has over 50% more drug offences than Mexico? Since several past presidents till now there has been an exaggeration of the war on drugs, Mexico suffered a blow to its international image mostly due to higher levels of violence and an equal dose of sensationalist media coverage.  If you don’t believe me, visit the web site called “How Safe Is Mexico?” there you will find exiting facts like:  Mexico City is 4 times safer than Washington D.C. even though nobody is warning against going to visit the White House.  The kidnapping and rape rates of Mexico are substantially lower than Canada’s and yet the U.S. State Department hasn’t issued any travel warning for Canada.  Mexico City (9) and Mexico as a country (14), have both lower homicide rates than New Orleans (49.1), Chicago (15.2), Philadelphia (19.6), Atlanta (17.6) and Miami (15.4). We have as a fact that the homicides with firearms in the US ranked 7th in the world and Mexico 17th. This means the US has 92% more homicides with guns than Mexico. Please keep in mind that the US is trying to keep all the money earned by Americans in the US and that is the reason why they want to spread around all the bad news in Mexico. They want to keep as many Americans as they can to keep them from spending their money in this country. We understand that you hear stories and you worry about your family, but these are facts and what these facts say is that Puerto Peñasco, Riviera Nayarit, and the nearby area is as safe (or even safer) than your hometown…and here we have the beach, the golf courses, and the perfect weather all year round. Please consider the facts before you make your decision.

Family Activities

Rocky Point, Mexico has long been known for hours and hours of discovery and fascination for kids at Sea of Cortez. It doesn’t matter what beach you are on, when the tide goes out a whole new world is uncovered. Tidepools are full of fish, crabs, starfish and many other sea creatures. Even at low tide many of these activities can still be enjoyed. For the more adventurous there are ultra light rides that take you high above the Sea of Cortez.Or head over to Cet-Mar Aquarium and spend hours feeding the turtles, sharks and sea lions. If your looking for shopping, go down in Old Port along the Malecon. And most weekends you will be entertained by local musicians, jugglers, fire breathers and other talents. CEDO, the study of oceans and deserts offers a free educational and fun tour which is an excellent way for the whole family to spend a few hours. You get to learn about the Sea of Cortez and its inhabitants and see a full length Fin Whale Skeleton. Or maybe head to the Malecon in the Old Port for cultural activities and great sunset photos. This area, once known for cruising and hanging out, has now become a beautiful section of town where the family can take a long stroll along the Sea of Cortez, eat at various restaurants and shop for curios, jewelry and fine art and grab some cool ice cream treats. The Malecon has been host to many city sponsored activities such as musical bands, ceremonies, charity walks, business expos, art walks and various family oriented activities at the Governor’s Plaza. Also, come to see Rocky Point’s new movie theater. The movie theater is located in Plaza Puerto Mio, has 6 theaters and a concession area. Plaza Puerto Mexico  is located just in front of the docks on Luis Encinas and Blvd. Benito Juarez.

 

We have the most magnificent scenery: breathtaking sunsets, dolphins and sea lions, volcanic craters, natural sand dunes, pristine beaches, protected estuaries and so much more. There are no limitations when taking a kayak out into the Sea of Cortez except sunscreen up and get the camera ready. Even if you just hang out around the shoreline you are sure to see dolphins, schools of fish, sting rays and perhaps a sea lion or two. For the more adventurous Rocky Point is home to a few beautiful estuaries than wind back and forth for miles. These protected pathways of turquoise water rise and empty with the tide. At high tide you are eye level with the salt grass and beautiful birds that you will not be able to find in any other part of the world. The estuaries are a birders paradise as well as a photographer’s or just a nature lover. Birds aren’t the only creatures hanging out in the estuaries – you may spot a coyote or two and are surely to see a couple varieties of crabs. Kayaking silently through these wetlands are the best way to see the plant and animal life of these truly beautiful areas.

Top 10 most beautiful beaches in Mexico

Top 10 most beautiful beaches in Mexico

 Mexico has almost 10,000 kilometers of coastline, and therefore, infinity of beautiful beaches. Some are classified among the most beautiful in the world. And it is that Mexicans are terribly darlings in question of beaches. In el Caribe, the color intensity turquoise, the reef and Mayan culture; in the Gulf, the coasts of Tampico and green of Veracruz, and intensity of Tabasco and Yucatan. In the Costa Oeste, from Chiapas to Baja California, incredible sunsets, waves for surfing and the passage of gray whales and dolphins. For all this make a list with the best beaches is almost painful and also very subjective. And sure I’ve forgotten from the beach more recondite, the prettiest.

For those who prefer the crowds, Mexico has several of the most visited beaches in the world. Manzanillo, in Colima that receives half a million visitors each year, Mazatlan, Sinaloa, and Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, receive more than a million and a half visitors, and Cancun and Cozumel in Quintana Roo, and Acapulco in Guerrero, which are visited for more than 2 million people every year.

Personally, I prefer the quieter beaches, or at least those that are more beautiful in terms of nature. Here are some of my favorites.

Tulum, Quintana RooTulum-Beach,-Mexico

One of the stars of the Caribbean is Tulum. The white sand and turquoise waters would not be as wonderful without Maya el templo looming on the horizon. Bathe and look to the temple, or visit the Mayan ruins and see the immensity of the sea bottom is priceless. You can’t leave without taking a bathhouse, sauna famous Hispanic, with subsequent dip in a cenote and a feast of traditional food.

Mazunte, Oaxacamazunte

Mazunte, on the Pacific coast, is one of the most beautiful beaches on the beautiful beaches of Oaxaca. It owes its name to a blue crab that once was very numerous in the area. If you go, do not miss Punta Cometa, the northern most tip of Mexico, where you can see the sunrise and sunset in the water.

Boca del Cielo, Chiapasbocacielo

One of the least known beaches is Boca Del Cielo, also is one of the most pristine. A strip of land between the estuary and the sea of the Pacific Ocean, to rest quietly, rocking in a hammock sipping coconut water and freshly caught a lobster lunch. Do not forget to visit the turtle camp.

Islas Marietas, en JaliscoISLAS-MARIETAS-VALLARTA02

The geology creates wonders sometimes, as it did in this natural paradise protected by UNESCO. The hidden beach, hidden beach or as it is known, is located a few miles from Puerto Vallarta. Has prohibited access to be a protected area, but can be accessed with special permission. To enter you’ll swim beneath a cave about 20 meters long.

Puerto Peñasco, Sonorapenasco

With 110 miles of beach Puerto Penasco is also known as Rocky Point Sonora, the area is famous for its natural treasures. Desert islands, semi-virgin beaches, caves and endless wonders to be discovered. You can also visit the Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans (CEDO), a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental education and protection of the land and sea environments of the region.

Chacahua, Oaxacachacahua

In the National Park Laguna’s de Chacahua, you can find a secluded beach-shaped bay with gently sloping fine sand, where it joins the fresh water and salt water. Chacaua, also in Oaxaca, is another wonder of the Mexican Pacific. Do not miss the walk through the mangroves and visit the crocodile farm and the iguana.

Playa escondida, Veracruzplaya escondido

Forest, beach, sea and sky. That is the attraction of this beach, located at the northernmost point of the coast of Los Tuxtlas. To get you need to take a boat from Montepío, or on foot, it is isolated between two neighboring cliffs and is frequently washed away by winter storms. Do not miss the tilapia in garlic sauce is prepared in the area.

Los Cabos, Baja California Surlos cabos

Los Cabos is one of the most beautiful and exclusive destinations of Mexico, located on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Many are the delights that will drive you mad, its wilderness, its reef, its tons of fresh seafood. But if anything stands in the area is because in February the whales arrive to find the warm waters of Los Cabos to mate and give birth there to their calves.

Zihuatanejo, Guerrerozihuatanujo

Zihuatanejo is a wonderful place in the Guerrero coast. He went from humble fishing village, a highly rated beach destination for backpackers and ecotourists. Be sure to explore the many magical places of Zihuatanejo, explore its narrow winding streets, visiting art galleries and craft shops, and savor the fish tacos richest region.

 Costa Esmeralda, Veracruzjpg_esmeralda

Among communities Tecolutla and Nautla is a strip full of blue and green beaches impacting tourists. This is Costa Esmeralda, a beach with fine sand and calm surf, highly recommended for water sports of all kinds. Do not leave without trying their seafood.
