hard to know without statistics, but from my point of view might say:

Toluca, Edomex
Merida, Yucatan
Puebla, Puebla
Queretaro, Queretaro
Leon, Guanajuato
Oaxaca, Oaxaca
Hermosillo, Sonora
Los Cabos, BC
Cancun, QR
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco

Yucatan state has a murder rate of 1.7, as safe as you will get in Mexico.

Wow that's a great question because a lot of us prefer city living as opposed to the ultra-boring suburbs. I'd like to know:

What are the safest large cities that are, relatively speaking, closest to the American border?

One doesn't judge safety by the murder rate alone.

In Mexico it is a big factor though given that unlike the states many innocents/non gang members get killed in Mexico.

^ There have been many civilians killed in Mexico over the drug wars, but the still the vast majority are those involved..

I'd say Mexico City is the safest large city in Mexico. Before, people would leave the capital becuase of the insecurity, now things have changed and people from all over Mexico, especially the narco plagued north are flocking to Mexico City.

Puebla is another large "safe" city as well.
