What is the best way to keep vsiting guests safe? I have about 20 newbies coming to Z for a wedding, what should I tell them and how do I keep my own paranoia from ruining this special experience?

Don't do anything here that you wouldn't do in your own home town.
Realize that it isn't all tourists, many people live and work here!

My First Timer Sheet touches on that and other info, most of it helpful. If you'd like a copy, e-mail me directly via the white envelope next to my name.

One might think common sense should prevail, seems like some have lost this!

No, don't need that one, have acquired a little bit more common sense than to be out at 4 a.m.

In my opinion it is natural to be not paranoid but a bit apprehensive if you are new to a location. This is year number 13 for us and our third year of 6 months, we venture to different areas but not very far off familiar places and rarely if ever past 10pm but that is our lifestyle others like the locals like to party late into the evening and early morning on holidays, different cultures. We are also in our early sixties so those late night parties are seldom but we have a fairly big energy output through exercise each day so to bed early.

I am concerned about different events and wish they didn't occur but they do. Like Rob mentions some are targeted. We still go to the places we want but I don't look over my shoulder all of the way.

Be humble, remember you are not in your home country and be respectful. Remember you are not at home and things work differently in different countries, tourists can be a target for pick pocketing, hustling and so on all over the world.

If you are coming for a week, by the time the wedding is all over I expect you won't have much time for extracurricular activities into the wee hours.

Gemini97;
Don’t stay out in the wee hours
Take a taxi after dark
Remember you are a quest in Zihuatanejo
Have fun enjoy the wedding

Thankyou bobbybend and Ernie, you responded to my original question, it was helpful. I will pass this along to my guests. Sending 35 people to Cuba isn't an option. Just trying to show new people beautiful Zihautanejo. The end!

I suggest you show them this.
