My cousin is in the Peace Corps in San Luis Potosi. We had been planning to go visit her around Easter, but suddenly my mom hears about kidnappings there and gets all freaked out.
I was under the impression that Mexico is perfectly safe if you are not involved in drugs or law enforcement and you keep your wits about you and don’t hang out too close to the border. She says if we’re going with her and her two older lady friends that it isn’t safe enough.
Experienced Mexican travelers, opinions? (Keep in mind, we would be taking two people who are not accustomed to the kind of travel where there’s no cruise director and you don’t speak the language.)
