Most people I talk to are scared to travel to Mexico. This was my 3rd big trip to Mexico, in addition to many small border crossing trips. Since I live 30 miles from the border I often cross it for things like dental care and handmade home furnishings. Are there places in Mexico you should not travel to, or at least be very cautious in? Absolutely. However, there are also plenty of places in the States I would not feel safe spending time in. As a general rule though, I feel if you treat people with respect and a smile you will receive the same in return. If your still uncomfortable with Mexico, San Miguel de Allende is a great place to start. A bustling little artist colony with architecturally outstanding churches seemingly every other block. It houses many foreigners as tourists as well as full time residents. Even with so many people, it still possess a small-town charm, while offering many options of activities, eateries, and shopping. There is even a toy museum!
