Huatulco Makes The List Of The Safest Spots In Mexico
USA Today Travel wrote a great article regarding the bad rap associated with Mexico safety. Included in the article is a list of the safest places to vacation in beautiful Mexico…It should come to no surprise that Huatulco made that list!
Top 8 Safest Spots To Vacation
The Top 8 Safest places to travel according to Lonely Planet U.S. travel editor Robert Reid:
1. Mexico City
3. Todos Santos
4. San Miguel de Allende
6. Playa del Carmen
This article does a great job of pointing out the huge double standard often seen when it comes to reporting violence in the news. In fact, one commenter said it perfectly when he wrote:
“When something bad happens along the border with the US, it’s “Mexico” vs identifying the city or state. When piles of graves are found on Long Island from serial killers, it’s “Long Island” not the United States. As such, Mexico, as a whole, gets the bad rap for isolated scenes of violence. Do you want people staying out of California because of what happens on Long Island? As for safe places, Playa Del Carmen was mentioned, but that is only one city on the Riviera Maya, which is Mexico’s golden goose, and they are not allowing any violence to disrupt her from laying more golden eggs. The state is Quintana Roo, and it is quite safe from Cancun down to the capital, Chetumal.
I have lived here in Akumal for 1 year.
