This savvy slideshow sums up 11 awesome things about Mexico that don’t get the attention they deserve. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves…Which brings me to one of my favorite
subjects rants: I’m not recommending you spend your next vacation poolside in Ciudad Juarez or anything (actually, I wouldn’t recommend that ever), but if you look at the numbers, Mexico is not as violent as many other popular tourist destinations, such as the Bahamas and Puerto Rico.
Also, since I am all geared up in my special “dead horse beating” outfit: Mexico’s murder rate is evidently half that of Detroit. While Detroit is not exactly viewed as an ultra-safe vacation Valhalla, I still think it’s interesting that US news networks are so willing to imply that Mexico is more violent than the US.
