Hi we are a family of 5 (kids 7,7 & 4) hoping to go to Mexico in Feb 2011 from New Zealand. We have been planning a month or longer around the mid, and lower parts of mexico with time on the coasts for sun/beach. I also desperately want to see the monarch butterflies!!!
We are fairly adventurous travellers and have taken our children (2.5 years ago) to China for a month and regularly on trips closer to home, but all our friends and relatives think we're crazy going to Mexico due to 'dangers' seen in the news.
I had similar comments made to me when I went to Africa, yet it was fine. So I'm thinking this will be too, but wanted some advice as then it was only me, and now its my kids too.
Would love any advice, thoughts on this. THANKS!
