Simple, don’t go on a ferry. But if you do, make sure it’s the Boobs Cruise.
I'm way more concerned about the sargassum than this.
Problem is this isn't a BS fake news story. US State is issuing the warning and US Government employees are banned from travel. I agree that Cancun is still a safe place however it sucks for those of us who already have reservations.
Security Alert - U. S. Embassy Mexico City, Mexico (March 7, 2018) | U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Mexico
Are your reservations in PDC? Nothing seems to prohibit travel to Cancun. Though if you are military, I understand that some units have more stringent travel restrictions.
People think it,s fake news because the US TA is constantly crying wolf in Mexico , it,s no secret .
Why doesn't the US travel advisers,, tell people not to go to '' any major us city with high crime'' ??
Mexico /Cancun statically is far safer then some US cities . ( not naming any Cities cause last time I did some got sensitive.defensive.)
Canada has issued a warning to avoid ferries .
Joe&Heidi no our reservations are for TTR so we're GTG. My only point is the ban is not fake news and "if" we decided we wanted to take a trip down to PDC we would not be able to. As for comments about US cities being more dangerous than Cancun, don't think that should be a discussion here. I know I can't wait to get down there to get away from all of the political back and forth
And now confirmed by good ol' Steve...our true CCC Mayor or TTR, etc....and most if all...true or unfake news information Barron!
I would like to point out that "fake news" has not only denotations but also connotations.
Aka....hype good or bad is fake news!
Why do they ((gubment and broadcast/print news) want to freakin scare people all of the time?
Makes no sense.
Life is short so enjoy it.
Go where you want and do what you want but just keep your wits and be aware.
If not we should just cower and go back living in caves and under rocks.
Yes swimming would be more safe...even with the sharks and fear of drowning
why couldn't you still go to PDC? you're free adults and therefore free to ignore the silly hype of media and bureaucrats.
if I hear one of these stories, or the alcohol ones a few months back, and the source is the State department or the news media I am actually more inclined to believe it is complete nonsense or at least so exaggerated as to bear no resemblance to reality.
Because I'm one of those darn Govt employees and if PDC or any other city is on the list I can't go
Do you disagree we should keep politics out of this forum? I only ask because you yourself said you got flamed for mentioning certain cities and I know people can be sensitive.
24 hour new cycles. They need to say something juicy. Please keep politics out. Or it’ll end up the Hatfields against the McCoys.
Ps- my wife says no ferry to Isla because of this. Which I’m not happy about
Funny!!! ABC news just aired the explosion on the ferry and the found device found by the Mexican authorities place underneath another ferry— (video of the explosion scene and the other device from the 2nd boat) —then says additional information in issuing the warning—- lets not bebate the issue here except to use a bit more caution in traveling!!!!
No you were just making my point , thats why I found it funny ,, and why I did not mention any cities by name ,, yet ..... I guess we agree ??
That said most US travel warnings are political ,, so it,s hard not to mention.
My thinking , why tell people not to go to PDC ,, when going to ''x'' city in US is more dangerous,, if not for a political reasons ? US travel would far more like you to go to Florida .
...........or you could visit Chicago. This is a wild world. There are risks with every step you take. They're all calculated risks. You and yours will have to decide what risks you are willing to take for what reward. It's just that simple. Some people will tell you there's no danger at all.............others will shout "Danger Will Robinson.......Danger". If you "get" that quote you're either balding...........salt and pepper.......have droopy tits or need Viagra.
Lighten up....decide what's right for you and part on.
i still don't understand why you would allow an exaggerated fear mongering directive from the state department designed to give Good Morning America something to talk about control your freedom. do you have a gps implanted in your forehead?
It's because "if" I or any gov employee went to a banned area and "if" something happened while there, there would be consequences i.e. disciplinary.
