    Stuff like this isn't good for tourists in general let alone fans of Sammy. Still, my goal is to get to Sammys birthday bash October next year.

    I was staying in Vegas during a NBA allstar game there and gun fights where breaking out all over. The cab driver who picked me up said it was the worst he's ever seen it. Bretts right.

    These guys better start worrying NOW, or they're going to face some serious juju. Sammy warned them: "don't disturb my paradise/I asked you once, I asked you nice!"

    This was about 10-12 years ago but I had to travel to Mexico for work for a week about once a month over a two year period. At one point we received instructions from our HR department that if the police pull you over, don’t roll down the window but press your passport against the window. If they don’t let you pass, call the emergency number but don’t get out of the car. In background to this, the local and federal police were having gun battles over their share of the Cartel’s kick back money.

    Fuck all that. I need a bit more law and order for me to visit a foreign country so I have no plans to vacation there anytime soon. Imagine the above scenario but something actually happened, like a little kid jetted in front of your car and you hit him. What happens then? No thanks.

    We can say it happens everywhere but people see that stuff and they will find somewhere else to vacation. People don't like hearing about gun fights happening while they vacation.

    when's the last time a cartel opened fire on Disneyworld? The first time it happens I can assure you that the tourist number drops.

    Wrong. Actually the number of people coming to the US, both immigration and tourist, is down this year. By a lot.

    Maybe but where that happened is not anywhere near the Cabo that most of us go to. It's a huge area down there. That's like the ghetto of the Cabo area where stuff like that happening is not that surprising. I would never go to San Jose del Cabo. Yuck. It's like saying I'm not going to come to LA because of the gangs in South Central.

    Yep we spent part of our time in San Jose del Cabo. Totally different place there. Crumbled buildings that seemed like remains of a war zone, nearly. Did find a bar with Sunday NFL though, and rode the public bus drinking a large bottle of Pacifico with about 40 locals staring at me and saying nothing, this big 6-6 white dude.

    Not completely unrelated:

    At least 4 people shot, killed in Mexican resort of Acapulco

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/...pulco-49198497

    (I live in Philadelphia where there are times that we kill a person per day so I admit I'm being selective in my outrage.)

    Cabo is definitely safe for tourists.

    It really bums me out to see people living in fear. Just the other day, my friend told my wife she hopes we are not still planning on going to Cabo this October for Sammy's birthday bash. This is, of course, because she heard the news that there were shots fired, resulting in a few people getting shot or killed. (The shots were between cartel people exclusively).

    I've been to Cabo nearly 40 times since 1991. Out of all those trips, which were each around one week in length, I have NEVER had a single bad experience where I felt even remotely unsafe.

    Keep in mind, I've not one of those people who like to stay in their resort the whole week. I never do all-inclusive packages, so I'm out and about constantly, always trying to enjoy as many bars, restaurants, and beaches as possible. I have never had anything but a wonderful, carefree time.

    I'm well aware there are some unsafe areas of Mexico for U.S. tourists, and that would include some of the boarder towns in my state of Arizona. But Cabo, at least as of 2017, is definitely still one of the "very safe" areas of Mexico.

    It seems to me that the people who are afraid of Cabo (and other safe tourist areas of Mexico) are simply people who never go to Cabo, and are the types of people who are afraid of things, in general. Maybe they have an unusual fear of flying, or an unusual fear of terrorism, etc. There are a lot of people on this planet who are burdened with fear. People who vacation in Cabo understand it's a safe place for tourists. It's at least as safe as a what would be considered a "safe" city in the USA.

    Hopefully it will always stay that way.

    As for me, I'm very much looking forward to having a blast down there in October! I certainly encourage anyone here on VHLinks to make it down there.
