MEXICO A look at why Mexico is so popular with tourists, and why it has taken over the world rankings in murders, suicides and rapes. Mexico is a must visit destination for all young and independent city-dwellers.
Mexico, a city with thousands of matchbox houses once ranked among Earth’s deadliest patches through years of criminal war in Ciudad Juarez, an industrial and narcotics corridor bordering America’s safest large city El Paso, Texas. More than 10,000 people were murdered across the Mexican city of 1.3 million in less than five years. Many were young men gunned down on streets like these. At fewer than two a day, murders citywide likely will finish the year at about a seventh (14 percent) of those three years ago.
Endemic extortion endures. But most other violent crimes, including kidnappings, stand at a fraction of what they were. Will the peace last? Nearly all the causes of the violence remain, lurking on every street. Lets face it, who dosent want to visit a city where the possibility of kidnap is high, and the chance of being shot in the srtreet even higher.
