I was driving past the Vallarta cruise ship dock yesterday and couldn’t help but notice this gigantic black and white behemoth looming over the street with the name, Disney Wonder, painted on the bow. What a sight. Aha! Mickey isn’t afraid to come to Mexico; why should anyone else?
I just don’t understand why the US and Canada feel so threatened by Mexico, but they obviously do. Let me set the record straight, yes, there are issues in some areas in Mexico and, no, there are not issues in all areas, such as Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, aka Bahia de Banderas.
Every time I read or hear generalized negative reports about Mexico, I can only think that it is less about the actual issues in Mexico and more about domestic issues in those other countries.
The next time you hear your local newscaster make a general statement about Mexico, or any generalized statement which degrades or demeans another, challenge them by e-mail, on their blogs, facebook, twitter, and ask them to be specific. Even Mickey knows it’s safe to come to Mexico.
