This section provides practical tips about security in Mexico. Generally, violent crime against tourists in Mexico is not common.
The government is quick to stamp out any untoward incidents considering the tourism industry provides such a huge economy for the nation. Colonial towns and beach resorts have low crime rates and the local residents are friendly and welcoming towards foreigners.
Reports of drug-related violence in Mexico are accurate although this occurs mainly in the border region with fatalities exclusively between police authorities and the cartels.
Large, urban centers do have higher crime rates than smaller towns, but like travelling in any major city in the word it's a question of using your common sense and avoiding certain areas.
