How to Vacation and Travel Safely While in Mexico

Let's don't get the wrong idea, Mexico is a great place to vacation to and a very popular destination as well. But, like anywhere else you might take your holidays to there are problems that could arise and you need to know how to protect yourself so that your vacation is not ruined by becoming a victim.

One of the first things you should do when you are planning a trip to Mexico is to make sure to check with your State Department to see if there are any kind of special travel warnings you might need to be aware of. You can easily do this by going to their website that covers travel. Just click on “Travel Warnings” and there will be a list of countries and the different things you should be aware of.

Make sure that you stay current with the news for Mexico by keeping up to date with news provided by entities like Yahoo, Google or Bing. You can have updates sent to you letting you know if there might be areas of Mexico that you might want to avoid during your trip.

There are a lot of things you need to remember once you get to Mexico as well. These are things that you should always pay attention to and follow no matter what is going on in the country. One really important one that you should make sure that you follow is to do your best to only go to places that are well known and traveled a lot by other tourists. Stay away from places that are off the beaten path or out of the traffic of tourists. These places could get you into trouble.

Make sure that you have a copy of your itinerary including any tours you might have planned left at home with a good friend or someone in your family. They should know where you will be so that if something happens they will have this to fall back on. Make sure that you also include all the places you will be staying and how they can contact you.

Never go anywhere alone, not even during the day. You should have at least one other person with you no matter where you go and no matter what time of day it is. You also may not want to take your own transportation. Consider booking with a group of people so that you don't fall victim to cab scams and other types of scams that might leave you without money or ID.

Make sure that you know how to use your cell phone once you are in Mexico. This means you should contact your cell phone provider and see if there are special things that you need to do in order to use your phone while you are traveling in Mexico.

If the place that you are staying at has a safe in the room, it's there for a reason, take the opportunity to use it. You never want to leave any of your money, jewelry, iPods, MP3 players, cameras, etc. out in the open in your room. Lock them up. You never know whether or not you can trust the hired help.

When you are traveling around the country do your best not to wear any kind of jewelry that appears to be expensive and never flash a lot of money around. You need to do your best to keep as low a profile as you possibly can in order not to draw too much attention to yourself.

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to find out how you center yourself
and clear your mind before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
