It is obviously a personal choice where you choose to vacation - and my choice is to not include Mexico in any future trips until things calm down.
Your thread has made people more informed about Mexico and travel in general. That is a very good thing. My Mexican Riveria cruise two of my tablemates were afraid to get off the ship in Mexico because of Violence. I told them to get off the ship, just use caution. They did and had a great time. So I would not alter my island choices do to increased violence in Mexico. Most of the violence occurring in Mexico is near the boarder due to drug running in the area. I still think you should understand the culture and crime in any country you are visiting.
