Travel expert: Why you should go to Mexico

Travel expert: Why you should go to Mexico

By Robert Reid, Special to CNN

Reports of mass grave sites, daylight shootings and car jackings from the escalating drug war don't exactly build confidence for a family planning a week's holiday. And on April 22, the U.S. State Department upgraded its travel warnings to target 14 of Mexico's 31 states. Now's not the time to visit our southerly neighbor, right? Well, wrong. Mexico is a lot safer than you may realize. We tend to lump all of Mexico -- a country the size of Western Europe -- together. For example, a border incident resulted in the death of a Colorado tourist last year, and the Texas Department of Homeland Security recommended against travel to all of Mexico. Yet it's in the 17 of 31 states not named in the newly expanded warnings where you'll find the most rewarding destinations: the Yucatan Peninsula and Baja California beach resorts, colonial hill towns like the ex-pat haven of San Miguel de Allende, even the capital Mexico City.

Mexican protesters march to end drug war. An hour inland from Cancun's beaches, Yucatan state -- home to the most popular Mayan sites and "real Mexican" colonial cities such as Merida and Valladolid -- is among the country's safest. The state, with roughly the same population as Kansas, saw two drug-related deaths in 2010. Wichita, Kansas, alone had six gang-related killings over the same period.

Lonely Planet: 8 top places to (safely) visit in Mexico now. In most of central and southern Mexico, drug violence simply isn't on the radar of daily life. "It's as easy-going as it's always been," said Deborah Felixson, a diving operator on Cozumel who is "shocked" when people say they had been scared to go to the Caribbean island. "We're just small communities here. We all know what everyone's up to." That sentiment is found even in places once linked with political tension, such as Chiapas state and Oaxaca City, where political protest turned into a stand-off in 2006. "Things are so much quieter now," said Rogelio Vallesteros, who runs a Spanish-language school in Oaxaca City. "People call to ask about safety all the time, then they come and see how quiet it is. We're normal, really." Mexico tourism official: Vacation spots far removed from violence After the swine-flu crisis of 2009 -- when some cruise ships diverted routes from Mexican ports that had no reported cases to American ones that did -- travel bounced back a bit last year. Interestingly, the increase of returning Canadians and many Western Europeans doubled that of the American rate. We seem to remain particularly leery of Mexico. That's sad. My love of travel began with childhood visits to Mexican ruins and beaches, and I feel the U.S. is fortunate, not cursed, to be so close to a place that offers jungles, deserts, volcanoes, beaches, coral reefs, ancient pyramids, living pre-European cultures and some of the world's most satisfying cuisines. And of course the best reason to go: the people. A couple of years ago, I informally polled various innkeepers and tour operators worldwide to find out who are the world's friendliest travelers. Guess who won. "Mexicans are such a joy to have here," one Bulgarian guesthouse owner e-mailed back. "They make everyone feel happier." And it's often better in Mexico, where locals show particular gusto in love of life. Once I saw fireworks go off in Mexico City, before sunset, and asked a local why. He was surprised I didn't know. "It's Friday," he explained. In restaurants, strangers seeing each other's eyes instinctively say "buen provecho" before eating. It's an earnest wish that their food should not only be tasty, but really pleasurable, and that the hope that their life will be a bit better as a result. There really is no English equivalent. Even our adopted "bon appétit" pales in significance. Naturally, crime exists everywhere in Mexico. I've been pickpocketed in Guadalajara (and in New York, too). But that's the extent of my unpleasant scrapes in a dozen visits that have taken me to home-stay language courses, traditional Mayan markets, mummy museums, cenotes (surreal limestone sinkholes in which you can swim) and even Zapatista zones in the south. Most travel to Mexico, ultimately, is simply good travel. It's fun, affordable, eye-opening and fascinating (seriously, what other city of 21 million other than Mexico City is founded on a filled-in lake?). But, no, you don't have to visit Mexico. And there are certainly places, like Ciudad Juarez or Tamaulipas state, I'd never visit now. Just know that the Mexico experienced on the ground almost never matches the Mexico we increasingly see and read about.

Every year there is a reenactment of the Mayan crossing from the mainland to Cozumel in order to honor the goddess Ix Chel, the goddess of fertility.  It was tradition for the Mayans to make the pilgrimage  to Cozumel to the temple of Ix Chel at least once during their lifetime, especially for women who were pregnant or wishing to become pregnant. 

After months and months of training, modern day participants rise before dawn and leaving the mainland around 5am make the long journey across the channel arriving to Cozumel mid afternoon in dugout canoes.  It's a long, arduous journey, made more difficult since participants can only wear the typical Mayan dress, so no sunglasses, hats, or sun protection except a white cloth on their head.

Waiting on their arrival, I stood under an intense sun downing free cups of water provided for everyone in order to prevent sun stroke.  I  can only imagine what it was like to row for hours under that same sun.  

I was told stories about women who had become pregnant after attending the ceremony in years past -  even one who had had her tubes tied!  So, women beware!!

The celebration continued into the evening at Chankanab and was a total delight.  Chankanab is built around a beautiful cenote with three Mayan style temples.  I only wish we could have sat closer to the temples but the setting was devine and the lighting and production values were really terrific.  It only happens once a year, which is really a shame, so plan ahead.  You can get tickets for next year here.

Donald Trump will build tourism development in Cozumel

With private investment of $65 million for the construction of two major hotels and a financial ceiling of 46 million pesos for the development of tourism infrastructure, Cozumel is shaping up to become a #1 destination of Quintana Roo. Mayor Aurelio Joaquin Gonzalez said that beginning 2012 construction of two new hotels will begin. They will be located in the northern part of the island. U.S. businessman, Donald Trump, will build a development of greater size over the next four years. It will have a thousand rooms, a golf course and a marina. This complex will have a capital expenditure of 60 million dollars. This is the first development to come to the island in 4 years of no foreign investment for large hotel infrastructure. The growth of the hospitality industry will join the hotel Cozumel Turquoise Bay where the Hilton will invest five million dollars to make 200 tourist hotel rooms available on the north end of the island. With the growth of the tourism industry, Aurelio Joaquín González said that in 2011 Cozumel's three million 600 thousand tourists will increase to four million as a result of the new Interjet flights linking Cozumel to Mexico City. The flights begin the first of July.

At the start of the airline operations, he noted, it will have four flights a week and increase in the winter season. Daily, direct flights to the island from the nation's capital will increase island income. He said that by 2012 Cozumel will reach five million visitors. It is the number one destination for the cruise ships in the country that recorded a flow of three million visitors, while 600,000 come from regional flights. He is also proposing that Quintana Roo be the host of the Mexico Tourism Tianguis that has been held in Acapulco. Cozumel is also proposing to be considered a home port in the cruise industry since the country currently has no competition.

The mayor highlighted the investment of 30 million pesos for the construction of the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, a project that is to provide more and better tourist facilities in Cozumel. Resources for this project, he said, are a mixture of federal, state, and municipality. Moreover, to develop new segments and increase the range of attractions in Cozumel, we are investing two million dollars for the preparation of Municipal Development Plan for Tourism, to make the strategic plans to promote island tourism.

With this project, he said, efforts are also directed to seek national and international markets for Cozumel on the basis of the range of attractions and services. He is even working to achieve the appointment of Cedral Fair as a Cultural Heritage of Humanity with UNESCO, which is why Congress recognized Local Cultural Heritage of Quintana Roo.
