Hola amigos,

I'm a student at UT Austin considering spending the summer at ITESM. I have lots of family in the area but will probably stick to living in the dorms for sheer convenience. UT is requiring me to file a petition because its a restricted region, so I just really wanted to know how safe the area around the campus is for an American. Yo no soy un gringo pero mi espanol no está 100 percento perfecto y tengo un acénto de un estadounidense.

It's safe, I live in Monterrey and I can tell. Violence levels have fallen substantially. If you live on campus or near will not have problems and you'll be fine.


After this answer, a lot of Americans who have not set foot in Monterrey in years will tell you not to come, it's super violent, etc.
I recommend you to form your own opinion, come from a few days to visit the city and the campus area and see by yourself.

I visited Monterrey in April. I saw families, choo-choo trains, and a lot of hotties.

I'm really happy to hear that violence levels have fallen in Monterrey. Any idea what lead to that?
