I travel down into Mexico on a weekly basis more or less and even after completing hundreds of trips I am still constantly asked by my friends the same question. “Is it safe down there?” My obvious answer is usually something like “well of course”. After going this many times I have become so comfortable that I’ve grown ignorant to the possible dangers. But is it even dangerous? Sure I’ve heard the tragic horror stories portrayed through the U.S. media but I have yet to experience anything worse than a simple $20 bribe from a police officer to keep an intoxicated friend who was driving from going to jail. But real actual danger? Not even close. In fact I feel safer south of the border than I do in my hometown of San Diego.
