    Pacific Coast Highway

    Hi all

    Im planning a trip from Vancouver to Mexico, and back to las vegas and grand canyon. However Im really unsure about mexico as Ive heard there are a lot of crime there? Is it safe to go to mexico, near the boarder, or should we stop at LA and head for Las Vegas from there?

    Mexico... a lot of crime there.

    The Mexican border is more like a war zone at the moment. It makes Afganistan look like a 5 star resort.

    Guess we´re not headed there next year then
    So stop at Los Angeles, and not go further down south cause of crime?

    I wouldn't go to Mexico. It's very crime ridden and the cartels are turning it into a war zone as Aphex said. A co-worker's husband was murdered there last year. He was a Mexican citizen too, just visiting family in Tijuana. The police hassled him but he didn't have any money on him so they beat him up in a public market then dragged him into a field where he died and was found days later.

    You can definitely go south of LA. It's very beautiful down the coast, especially by La Jolla and San Diego. There isn't any spillover crime in San Diego, in fact I was there last weekend. Try to make it there if you get a chance, I love SD.

    Ok, thanks.

    I might ask for more tips later when my plans come together.

    Been to Las Vegas once. I guess its OK if you like neon, plastic and phoney everything. I, for one, am NEVER going back.

    Hey, that's as close to Hawaii as you can get on solid ground - come on over for a few days

    Mexico is fine as long as you cross during the day. Below ensenada its good. I made the drive to canon last year no problems.
