Anyone in PV seen or heard any news about PV and gangs? Is all Jalisco getting hot?
Been in beautiful Vallarta now for ten days and everything is safe and sound as usual.
Actually this continued misspeak about safety in PV is getting old and tiresome.
We expect our grandkids to visit and have no hesitation as to their well-being for a moment.
Use any normal precautions as you would at home and enjoy paradise.
If you're there now, why are you worried? What's brought about concern?
I've heard nothing but positive reports from people who were just there, just returned, or like you are still in the Vallarta area. Nobody's complained about anything but the cooler weather or the ongoing demolition of the pier at Los Muertos.
I'm thinking honestly this is much ado about nothing, so I'm curious if you're actually IN Vallarta, what is the problem? Just dropping a broad based "hint" and then leaving no facts or reasons why you're inquiring doesn't help anybody, friend.
EDIT: Or is this some kind of carry over from the President of Mexico being in town this past week/weekend, and there being an increased security presence because of that? People usually mistake that larger security detail, etc. for some kind of "safety issue", without taking the time to find out the facts.
Yes, President Calderon was in PV this past week. He was busy filming what we all hope will be a very positive docu-style program for PBS involving Mexico, tourism, and safety. He has declared 2011 the Year of Tourism in Mexico.Edited: 10 February 2011, 15:05
There must be some way that when someone posts the word safety that it automatically takes them to the posts of previous members. I know newcomers to the site are sometimes worried about safety and I understand that totally but if you are really hearing bad things about PV then where is it from? I have very seldom heard anything legit on this except for the normal safety issues that any city would have. Everywhere has gangs and crime. Just mind your business and you will be fine. Have fun in one of the best places on earth. 11 days to go.
This "person" has already had two threads deleted as closed topic.
Let's put the onus on them.
Where are you staying? Why are you worried?
If no satisfactory answer, let's all push "inappropriate post"
This Forum is not just for entertainment.
No I have not seen or heard any news about PV and gangs. Not now, not ever.
I get worried everytime I have to start packing to go home from yet another wonderful trip to PV.
I worry that my Loreal waterproof mascera won't be enough to hide my tears as I fly out from yet another wonderful vist to PV.
Mr.QT always worries that I will cause yet another scene at the hotel as I scream out loud, "But *I* am NOT ready to go back home yet!" as Mr.QT discreetly tries to undo the death grip that both of my hands have on the door of our hotel room.
(Don't even ask me what the last few hours are like on our one day cruise stops, Mr.QT is still considering Therapy, (seems *I* have issues about leaving a favourite city)
Sigh.....yes, let's talk about the PV gangs...... Sadly we have seen these gang members in fact we saw four chihuahua's roaming the street surrounding Dee's Coffee Shop, (loved the pink blanket wrapping up the lady gangsta) then saw two more on the beach.
We do fear that our two 100 pound Golden Retreivers might have a battle on their paws when they are moved down here in the next 7 years but really??? They need to be more assertive and a gang of Chihuahua's are the best bet to teach them that .;D
Jalisco is such a hot spot to vist :)
In all of my travels i have yet to see another city so enticing, so warm, so welcoming :)
We're not a gang, we're a club!!
Well at least it's Friday, so no excuses about drinking tonight.
^^^^LOLOL I have that on my favourites and it never gets old....
Yes, Tomorrow noon might be a Micky D's run only because I live too far from an In N Out. >;D
Brainfood42, I'm not sure what your agenda is, but give it a rest. This is your third post about the same vague nonsense. (I guess you didn't get the hint when your other 2 posts were closed down.) The only thing that's getting hot is the weather; it's getting warmer and more beautiful in PV with each passing day.
(Apologies to everyone else. I should be following my own advice, which is "Don't feed the trolls".)
