  • I have been to Mexico 5 times and I love the country because I love the people.
  • I went to Cancun for the 1st time, and I loved it, Mexicans are the friendlist(sp?) people you could ever meet. At least the ones that worked at the Omni, some other workers from the hotel next door creeped me out, but other than that I Loved it!
  • I was young, all I remember is good deals on jewelry, and bad water, and hot food lol!
  • I lived in Mexico for ten years and can't wait for the day I can return. It's where I want to die. For more of my feelings about this mystical, magical country visit www.experiencesanmiguel.com.
  • I have visited Mexico five times. I've been to Mexico D.F. and also to the south of the country in three road trips with my family. We visited the Mayan Riviera, Villahermosa, Campeche, Tuxtla, etc.)Also have been to Ixtapa and Puerto Vallarta. Mexico is a country rich with history and endless attractions. They treat all tourists incredibly well. Mexicans know they have a beautiful country and are proud of it, I admire them for that.
  • I have been to Mazatlan it was fabulous would love to go again and the hospitality is great!
  • I've been to Tijuana a number of times and to Rosarito Beach a couple. This answer is different from the others I read, which is why I'm writing it. TJ is like a third world country. Rosarito's better than TJ, although the two are close together, distance-wise. Astounding poverty. People everywhere, 24/7. Funky looking dogs with mismatched heads and bodies roam the streets. The few people who own cars drive them like tomorrow's a threat they hope to avoid. And the houses are painted wild colors - turquoise, fuschia, neon green - name it. Everything in Tijuana is cheap, including life. You can get almost anything you want, except guns - although if you know the right people, you could probably buy those, too. I never had any problems with the policia or the Federales, but one of my friends ran into a couple of cops who shook him down for $500 one night as he walked down the street. Needless to say, the Mexico that people visit on vacation is different from the Mexico that I've seen. That one's a definite perspective builder. I'm sorry if this answer offends anyone. The question did ask for opinions. What I've written here reflects my experience in Tijuana, which is part of Mexico.
  • i love mexico and it's culture. awww the food is so yummy and HOT! the people are friendly and miss mexico 2006...is Beautiful...oh mexico...i love mexico...gorgeous country! i'm white and love mexico because my grandpa's from there! go mexico!!!
  • I have been to Tijuania & Rosarita and Ensanada on cruises. And the people there speak better English then here in the United States. Everyone there is always friendly to me and helpful.
  • I love it.
  • I have never been to Mexico. Other members of my immediate family have gone and have had pleasant experiences. My daughter went there as a junior in high school.
  • I'm afraid to go to Mexico. I've read too many horror stories about cops beating people and stealing from them. And stories about people getting sick and having to go to the hospital and being held there for a long time with bad care, then ending up in jail because the hospital was some incredible amount of cash. I don't think I'll ever go there because of stories like these!
  • I have been numerous times, the most recent in March 2007 and I am very comfortable there. Language issues are minor, modern conveniences are now available and safety and infrastructure are improving. I have done both the Baja area and Yucatan area and prefer the Yucatan.
  • I love it there.
  • I have been to Mexico a few times (I guess 4 times all together), never to the resorts... I worked as a volunteer in the 'dump' villages and saw things that I would have never believed if I hadn't been there in person... I have also been to the most southern parts, on the edge of the rain forests of Guatemala, where it is incredibly beautiful and serene and the people are the kindest most generous folks I've known.. and wealth is measured by large, loving family, rather than money. It was a great awakening for me :)
  • I've only been to Cozumel. It was beautiful in the immediate port area, but once we went walking just a few blocks away, it got very slum-like, and you could tell the people were very poor.
  • I live in Guadalajara Mexico, I have been here for almost 2 years, my husband studies here. I must say I love the way of life, it is so different from the States. I have a maid which I pay $20 usd to clean my WHOLE house and she does an amazing job, I think what I will miss the most from here is her.. I'm going to have to figure out a way to smuggle her in....lol!!
  • I've never been to Mexico. I've never been to any country besides the US, all because of my mom.
  • Yes but I was too young to remember.
  • A lot of poor people and wealthy hotels. I didn't really enjoy it, but the people were friendly.
  • I lived there for a little over a year. What I didn't enjoy: I don't like spicy food and I found Mexican men in general (there were exceptions) to be a tad chauvinistic and sexists. However, many Mexicans, regardless of gender, were quite friendly and the country's landscape is truly beautiful in some places.
  • Si, I have been to Mexico, walkiing the streets of carts and cheap deals, wearing my light-up flip flops and getting offered pecos for them... Good TIMES!
  • I am too afraid to go to Mexico. I hear too many horror stories about Americans being kipnapped there.
  • I went a friend to Mexico City, we rented a car and drove south through Puebla, Oaxaca and onward to the Pacific Coast, Puerto Angel and Puerto Escondido, up to Acapulco and then back through Cuernavaca to Mexico City. We spent two months it was great. We got robbed by some cops but leaving Acapulco but even that was like 20 dollars loss US and we drove him home through the mountains. I strongly suggest you go.
  • I went to one of the little border towns across from Arizona. I hated it. It was nothing, but a tourist trap and a dirty one with nasty people to boot. We saw kids chasing and throwing things at a beggar woman and nobody did anything to stop them. I will never go back.
  • Twice, Tijuana, which was everything you think it is, and then some!!,and Las Hadas in Manzanillo, That was incredible. It is the same resort as in the movie "10" The bus ride there from the airport was exiting?. It was a beautiful piece of the earth. Went to Belize once also.
  • I have been to Mexico at least 20 times as a tourist(Cancun,Playa del Carmen, Playacar, and most recently for the last 10 years Puerto Vallarta) The Playacar section of Playa del Carmen(40 miles from Cancun) has the best beaches and water in the world in my opinion. You will find some resort workers who are interested in tips mainly. I am fortunate in that I have developed friendships with several families in Puerto Vallarta so I get to see Mexico from that point of view. I always tell my friends that: 1.The Mexican People are very hard working. 2, The Great Mexican People are very family oriented. 3. The Mexican People are very religious. 4.The Mexican people are very proud people. The people get paid very small wages in most jobs and if they are mistreated, they do not dare say anything for fear of reprisal. You will find things that bother you such as hard sell time share sales personnel. Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful quaint city originally a small fishing village made famous by the movie "The Night of the Iguana". (Population now around 400,00 people. It now is a large way overgrown congested city(too many hotels and they keep building them, over crowded roads, too fast and rude taxies and drivers) BUT at least 100 very Excellent restaurants with great food and service.Restaurant Prices are the same if not more than US Restaurants. The city has a section downtown about a mile long facing the ocean called the Malecon which has Restaurants, Night Clubs, Jewerly Stores, Art Statues. and the best People watching probably in the world. I over all recommend a visit to Puerto Vallarta(West Coast of mexico) There are many things to see and do that would suit many appetites. I have never seen any problem with Police there, in fact they seem to be quite protective of tourists. You can also take a tour to a couple of other close intersting villages, plus many tours, etc. tieing in with the ocean. Thank You, Bill
  • its nice
  • I hitch-hiked all over Mexico. The Mexican people are great in Mexico. The Americanized Mexicans in the U.S. are a real discredit to the Mexican people.
