The Mexican Government Took The Media On A Tour To Prove Tourism Is Safe . . .

 

At this point, there's not an all-inclusive vacation package in the world that could get me to visit Mexico.  All the free alcohol and food in the world isn't worth getting kidnapped the second we step across the border.
Well . . . the Mexican government HATES that we're all scared to travel there, and they decided to do something about it.  So they took a group of 13 reporters on a tour of southwest Mexico to prove just how safe and tourist-friendly the country is.

And . . . the reporters were promptly KIDNAPPED.

Surprisingly enough, the kidnappers weren't drug lords . . . they were MACHETE-WIELDING Nahua Indians, who are in a serious territorial war with other indigenous groups over land all over the country.
A group of 15 people who were filming a beer commercial for Corona were also kidnapped by the Nahua.
Fortunately, all 28 people were released after the Nahua questioned them and decided they weren't a threat . . . but the Nahua refused to give back their cameras and other equipment.
The U.S. State Department still has a travel warning reminding all of us to be very careful when we travel to Mexico . . . especially the most dangerous areas like the southwest.
