Our top hack: Always be cautious when travelling but also remember to relax, some countries such as Mexico have a bad rep on the safety front & whilst this rep comes with some fact in Mexico’s case that’s not to say that everywhere you go & everyone you run into should scream danger. Relaxing & taking things one step at a time will enable you to enjoy this amazing country for what it really is.
