You might be a Paisano...they could care less as long as your money is good...(Dollars or Pesos).

I have heard that it is dangerous if you live there but I don't think visitors would have a problem unless you are in a shady place.

More disengenous news that does NOT represent or affect the majority of areas in Mexico! YES, obviously *some* of the border towns can be very dangerous but much of Mexico may be safer than many cities in the USA.

Just more disinformation to malign this beautiful country..

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm...dangerous for a person living in Mexico but NO problem for a tourist/visiter.

What's the difference? Suppose people wear a tag identifying their status...local or visiter.

Surprising on the info given from some within the US and are NOT residents in Mexico but know all the true particulars of the country...it's good and bad points. I live in Mexico and am learning things I never knew before.

I spent one day in New York city and know everything there is to know about the city. After all that makes me an expert (tongue in cheek).

I spent 9 days in Puerto Vallarta in October. Then 7 more days over New Years Eve. Those were my 8th and 9th trips to PVR. 12th and 13th overall to Mexico. I am a crack addict and Mexico is my crack, specifically PVR.

It's very dangerous if you are afraid of sunshine, friendly people, and good food.

Absolutely! Why do believe swallow this stuff, hook, line and sinker? The really dangerous places are few and far between, considering the vast size of this country..

I personly wouldn`t go. To many problems down there. Not only that, I personaly know people who got stopped by police. They had to give them money and a material item. I`ve been to Mexico but that was years ago. With the way things are now, I wouldn`t go.
