I have traveled to Mexico at least 6 times, the most recent time this past January; so I understand many areas are safe and the media reports are way out of whack. I feel as safe in PDC and the surrounding area as I do (sometimes more) than I do here.
That said, I know nothing about the Riviera Nayarit area. I tried to find it on some of the crime stat maps but wasn't quite sure what I was looking at. I know there are some areas on the West Coast I wouldn't go, but aren't sure how far they are from Riviera Nayarit. I did a search but most of the posts I found were pretty old and I know this information changes from year to year.
OK, justification for my question over :-). I just heard about the new Iberostar and am thinking it could be a possibility for a trip our extended family is trying to plan (including an overprotective brother and his daughter so I need to be able to answer these questions). Any concerns about the area, the area between RN and the airport, or anything else I should keep in mind? Of course I know to use common sense, same as I would here.
Thank you so much. I appreciate your help. Really! Hope you are all having a great day and evening.
