“You are what? Going to Mexico? Are you crazy? You’ll get killed!”
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard tourists tell me this exact story. The U.S. press has really done a job on Mexico. Anyone reading this, please know these facts:
1) The drug cartels are after drug dealers. Not tourists. Not citizens.
2) Swine flu has been incredibly exaggerated. Now the thought is that it didn’t even start in Mexico! Has the US press apologized for the damage it’s done to Mexico’s economy? Have they tried to get the truth out?
3) Mexico is suffering greatly. The hotels and rental units are down 85%. Visit Mexico! It is a country of wonderful people, many of whom are living hand to mouth. Your American dollar will be appreciated!! And, it is an economical vacation, especially when compared with Europe.
A new website has been developed to help foster the relationship of Mexcio with the rest of the world. Check out www.thecatalist.org It is an interesting site that is focusing on the positives of Mexican/foreign relationships.
