Although my Cristal Ball is broken at the moment, yes, driving on Mexican Quotas is generally very safe...in the DAY!

Do not drive at night, especially on rural roads. I was advised of that by many federal police officers coming from the states.

Bring back lots of Avocados from Uruapan!

A shoot out along the highway this morning between the military and narcos left three dead*. Generally speaking there is no specific threat against tourists, though. But be vigilant. And personally I wouldn't stray too far off the main road right now.

The shootout between the military and a convoy of gunmen took place yesterday morning on the highway between Pantla and Buena Vista around 4 a.m. Surprised you haven't heard about it.

Ha! No one should be scared because the military caught these guys! But it is another good reason not to be driving on the coastal highway after dark, especially during the wee hours of the morning.

I beg to differ. The waterfalls are not all man made. Here are some photos and additional info from my old Message Board Archives.
