Our (owned by the heart) Coste Alegre area is a haven amidst a WAR. Mexico is at war. The people of the affected towns are experienceing similar attrocities that the older generations endured during the Revolution sparked by Pancho Villa.

We, as tourists and expats, would be well advised to take off the rose colored glasses and arm ourselves with knowledge and courage....the courage to know the risks, behave accordingly and not let terrorists (carjackers, gangs, bullies, etc.) paralyze our lives. If you allow that THEY have succeeded and you have been terrorized...holed up somewhere in fear of what might or might Not happen.

choice is yours.

Did I mention arm yourselves with knowledge...the age of the internet is both helpful and a pain in the A...!

We will be there for the summer. our longest time and the first time to drive. a little scarey...
thanks for the input. I will need lots of advise.
