End of Innocence

I'm not ready to write off Zihuatanejo and I am not sure where safer tourist destinations are.

But I will say that when a neighborhood starts to get the reputation as unsafe for tourists or residents or merchants, it's really time to step up protective services, neighborhood vigilance and police presence. I don't think Madera can afford to be seen as a dangerous neighborhood.

I would also hope that there is no local culture that shields the people who are responsible. If locals know, locals should come forward.

It's true that you cannot tell the government how to spend tax dollars but it would seem to be in the interest of keeping Zihuatanejo prosperous to put some resources in the neighborhood before the reputation gets set in stone.
