Not overall, just some parts. Sort of like in America there are the bad parts of Chicago and other rough areas, but then there are also the suberbs and uptown stores.

The border towns are dangerous.

I live in south Texas. And anywhere along the border is more dangerous than the the interior. But being an American can make you a target anywhere in Mexico. They look at Americans as being rich so they are targeted for kidnappings. Be careful. Dont flash money around. Stay in large groups if possible. I personally would not go to Mexico.

Border towns are like war zones. However, I have a lady friend whose mother lives in Mexico City and she tells her daughter to not come there & the relatives meet in San Diego ( and the family is Mexican).

The parts that are designated mostly for tourists are not bad but if you venture out of those cities it can be dangerous because you're out of your element and are around j familiar surroundings. Also not knowing the language puts a damper on communication which in return could lead you to becoming lost. Just stick where the tourism is strong and you'll be fine.

Yes, it is very dangerous! My friend and I were chased by a group of about 20 men. The chased us about 3 blocks until the border guards saw what was happening and intervened. They love women with blond hair. Also, don't wear shorts or revealing clothes. Don't take your car across the border! Good luck to you!

Yes very much so and has been for years and just gets worse -- there you have kidnapping - murder /robbery - mass graves - sex trade and this is referring to the tourists and then you have the drug cartels - the crooked police -- it is also known that people are ground up and feed out ... never mind you can't drink the water - high rate of diseases including air borne flesh eating bacteria And and and ...

I don't really have to worry about that kind of problem since I'm a cat and can easily get out of bad situations fast. But, I do have a big problem with illegal cat fights in Mexico. Man, if you're an animal, and going to Mexico, stay close beside your owner, and if you don't have one, it would have been nice to meet you buddy.

I took a cruise to Mexico once, only once. That place is a cesspool. The people there are very poor, the streets are so filthy, water isn't the cleanest, and they have a major problem with prostitution & drugs. Worse than South America. No wonder many Mexicans that want a better life for their children do whatever they can to get their kids out of there. It's terribly sad.
