Tourist Zones Up To 26 Times Safer In Mexico Than U.S.A.

We knew that despite some bad press coverage recently, Mexico's tourist zones are very safe and real estate investment here offers some of the best opportunities in the western hemisphere at the moment.

To prove it, we undertook some research into crime rates in Mexico, the U.S.A. and Canada.

We've published the fascinating results today. They indicate that major tourist zones in Mexico are up to 26 times safer than some tourist zones in the U.S.A.

• The Mexican state of Baja California Sur - location of tourist zones Los Cabos, La Paz and Loreto - has a homicide rate 26 times lower than Orlando, 18 times lower than Miami, 17 times lower than West Palm Beach, 12 times lower than Tampa and half that of Honolulu.

• The Mexican state of Quintana Roo - location of tourist zones Cancun and the Riviera Maya - has a homicide rate 14 times lower than Orlando, 10 times lower than Miami, 9 times lower than West Palm Beach, 6 times lower than Tampa and lower than that of Honolulu.

The figures also show that Mexican tourist zones are even safer when the homicide rate is compared with major cities in the U.S.A. and Canada, where many tourists to Mexico have their homes.

For example, Baja California Sur has a homicide rate 39 times lower than Washington D.C., 19 times lower than Houston, 17 times lower than Dallas, 7 times lower than the city of New York and 3 times lower than Vancouver.

Ahead of President Obama’s visit to Mexico tomorrow, we hope that the research will help overcome the recent representation in some media of Mexico as a violent country all over.

Many tourists are safer on vacation here than when on vacation or living at home and Mexico's biggest tourist areas remain a true paradise for vacationers or anyone looking for investment properties.
