Same old problem

Rob, while I understand the current situation has a large bearing upon the US, this is not a US only issue. If I am not mistaken, Mexico has a rich, lengthy and deep history of corruption.

Your cartel issue has reached into the "local" economy and into the local population. To the point that your local Cab/Taxi drivers are shaken-down regularly. Over my last 15 years of visits I have made some local friends. One being a Taxi driver and have heard the tales first hand.

Is Mexico more or less safe than the US? I don't think so. And I will continue to visit.

Really? You've got The Chump in the White House and you want to tell me about how corrupt Mexico is? R U 4 real?

Cartels in Zihuatanejo? Not exactly. Lázaro is their big prize on this coast. We're just one of the scraps for the junkyard dogs. As long as we keep supplying passing vessels in the night with fuel there's nothing for them to fight over here.
