Mexico Honeymoon Safety

Honeymoon Quiz

I can't tell you how many times I get a wedding couple that tells me they are afraid to go to Mexico because of all of the things they have heard about their safety. This can really be unfortunate as Mexico is one of the most amazing and affordable wedding and honeymoon destinations out there, and can offer you everything that you are looking for in a location at a fraction of the cost compared to other locale. So far all of my wonderfully lovable and  petrified couples, I have created this informational article to help them start their own research.


I have experienced Mexico many times, and personally have found it to be one of the best experiences out there. The food, service, white sand beaches, and atmosphere are wonderful, and the resorts are really amazing. I have seen the most beautiful turquoise water in Mexico and white sand beaches. It is truly breathtaking. You really can’t beat the value Mexico offers honeymooners, and destination wedding couples. It is also a prime hotspot for many Hollywood A-Listers looking for sun, and fun.



Are You:

  • Afraid to go to Mexico for your honeymoon because of all of the things you hear?

  • Wondering how safe a romantic trip to Mexico can actually be?


Do you:

  • Know that Mexico's crime rate is lower than many states in the US?

  • Realize what you are missing out on?


Many people are afraid to travel to Mexico due to concerns from well-meaning friends, social media, television, and state travel warnings. People tend to think that all of Mexico is under attack. However this is far from the truth. This is because there are only certain regions of Mexico that the travel advisories apply to, and not the entire country.

Does crime happen in the tourist areas of Mexico? Yes absolutely. Crime happens everywhere, including your own home town.


MILLIONS of Americans visit Mexico every year without incident, and the number of tourists continues to grow.


Here is some information taken specifically from the website:

“Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year for study, tourism, and business, including more than 150,000 who cross the border every day. The Mexican government dedicates substantial resources to protect visitors to major tourist destinations, and there is no evidence that Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) have targeted U.S. visitors or residents based on their nationality. Resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico generally do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime that are reported in the border region or in areas along major trafficking routes.”


Here are some very popular and amazing tourist destinations to consider that are NOT under a Mexico travel advisory warning:

  • Cabo San Lucas

  • Playa Del Carmen

  • Cozumel

  • Tulum

  • Chichen Itza

  • Cancun

  • Riviera Maya

  • Riviera Nayarit


When visiting Mexico or any country for that matter, there are some common sense and good judgment rules you should always follow:

  • Don’t flash your cash – it is just common sense

  • Keep your good jewelry at home. This is where it is a good idea to travel with your costume jewelry pieces.

  • Never place valuables in your checked luggage

  • Leave your electronics at home unless absolutely necessary

  • Stay in a group

  • Don’t leave your drink unattended

  • Avoid getting drunk in public

  • Don’t use credit cards in open air markets

  • Bring small bills, as change will be in the country’s currency


Using common sense and being knowledgeable can open up a world of possibilities and opportunities to experience different cultures and regions. Traveling international is not only easy, but fun and rewarding as well, as there are a great many exciting experiences and bargains to be found in Mexico and the Caribbean.
