People often ask me about how safe Mexico is…
Having traveled here for over 20 years, I have never been robbed or felt unsafe as a tourist or as an explorer in the field. But I have relied on guides as well as good local advice. 

Saying all that… I’m currently being driven around in a Land Rover that has bullet proof windows and Kevlar lined interior including full engine protection.

Being wealthy in Mexico is dangerous. I stay in a gated community that has 24 hour camera surveillance, with security guards moving throughout the area at night.

在这里旅行了20多年,我从来没有像旅游者或在该领域的探险家那样被抢劫或感到不安全。 但我依靠指南以及当地的好建议。


在墨西哥富裕是危险的。 我住在一个有24小时摄像头监控的封闭式社区,夜间整个区域都有保安人员。

It’s a nice museum, located in the Museum district. I wasn’t excited by all the coloured lights that changed regularly. It was redesigned on a low budget after decades of neglect . Attendance is about 250,000 people per year. We were looking at options of how to use vacant areas within the museum.

这是一个很好的博物馆,位于博物馆区。 我对所有经常变化的彩色灯光并不感到兴奋。 经过数十年的忽视,它在低预算下进行了重新设计。 每年约有250,000人参加。 我们正在寻找如何使用博物馆内空置区域的选项。
