Wife Freaking out about violence in Mexico

Ok guys help me out. I tell her it's the border towns not Cabo. Well I guess Cancun is not safe for wives. Anyway. Please reassure her Cabo is fine.

Below Tijuana, I would say that the Baja Penisula is safer than the United States. And I don't mean the heavy-crime spots of the U.S., like LA and New York and Washington D.C.; I mean the entire U.S.

I'm hoping the hubs and I could one day retire in Cabo. And that's the truth!

This morning's paper yielded "Deadly night in Chicago: 7 killed and 18 more wounded in a matter of hours in shootings." It goes on to say most of the 7 who died had documented gang ties; nobody was in custody in any of the slayings. At least two of the victims died in drive-by shootings, including an 18 year old who was killed as he pushed his son down the street in a stroller.

If that had happened in Mexico, it would have been headline news; in Chicago, it gets a small back page mention. That's the difference in media coverage. That's why some of us say the American media is responsible for instilling paranoia in Americans about traveling to Mexico.

"It was one of the best trips ever (we go to a different part of Mexico every spring). So far Cabo is our favorite; we will be back. Upon returning I told family members I feel unsafe being back!"

Soccerref, spot on! We wouldn't live here full time if we didn't feel safe! Paradise on earth - in my opinion. We looked all over the world for our paradise retirement spot. Los Cabos won, hands down. Distant second choice was Hawai'i. Love Hawai'i, just don't want to live there.
