I'm sure the tourist area's are safe. Its just shocking to me how lawless some parts of Mexico are - and when CNN and MSNBC mentioned Cancun - it just rattled my nerves. It was easier for me to belive the vilolence was "in the other part" of Mexico and not be concerned. I hope the tourist industry is not affacted. I know "bad" things can and do happen anywhere. I was just wondering what other cruisers thought about it. Maybe I should change my name to "worrywart"
