As the North American continent slides into another winter of “global warming” caused rain-and-snow storms, the beautiful Acapulco is now entering into its dry season, and the city likely will not see a cloud for the next six months.
But, for those fed on a steady diet of mainstream propaganda, Mexico, historically one of the world's great travel destinations, seems too dangerous to visit. Nevermind that most of the violence happens at the border where the US has constructed a border fence, when all the nation needed to convince Mexicans to stay out was the 2008 economic collapse.
The truth is that Mexico's key tourism areas are safer than some of the most popular tourism areas in the world. According to UN-based data, Mexico doesn't make the list of the 36 nations with the highest murder rates. Instead, Sweden and Switzerland top Mexico for murders, while the assault rate in the US is nearly 5 times greater than Mexico. Over 150,000 Americans safely visit Mexico each day. In fact, they are safer in much of Mexico than they are in popular US cities Miami, Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans, Washington DC or Atlanta. The murder rate in New Orleans is 4 times higher than all of Mexico and more than 5 times higher than Mexico City.
That the US State Department issues warnings about Mexico but not Washington DC, which has a murder rate four times more deadly than Mexico City, highlights that the State Department functions in part as a propaganda arm of the US government.
When is Mexico truly dangerous? That is a tough question to answer, as the nation spans 2,000 miles of land. Moreover, it's 31 states are as diverse geographically and culturally as the 50 United States. Considering this data from the UN though, unless you're running drugs, you are statistically safer in Mexico than anywhere else in North America. Sure, people might not report crime in Mexico as often in the US because people there are less dependent on the government. But, nonetheless, it has been demonstrated time-and-time again that Americans and Canadians are safer in Mexico than in their own countries.
While in Acapulco, it is not merely the safe streets which will make you feel at home. You can sit in a luxurious condo, and watch Gossip Girl Acapulco, if homesickness truly calls. If you watch the video below, you can see just how truly breathtaking it is here. Oh, and yes, Mexicans do come that white. Many North Americans don't realize that.
This week, 13 of the top Olympic countries are currently competing in Acapulco for the 3rd Mexican Open, signaling finally just how extremely dangerous it is here.
