This safety presentation includes Ensenada, Mexicali, and Tijuana 2010 crime data compared with US cities. (2010 crime data is complete. Not all of the 2011 data is available yet. We'll post the full 2011 data when made available.)

The newly released update to last years travel warning by the US government talks briefly about Tijuana, in the state of Baja California, Mexico. Teams  with ministry sites in Ensenada have to drive through the border by Tijuana. The newly completed 2011 murder rates for Tijuana, show a significant decrease in the murder rate for 2011. 

Here is the link to download the    keynote file    or     pdf file.

Every year the US State department updates it's travel warning for Mexico prior to Spring Break. On Feb. 8, 2012, an update was released. Click here to read the travel warning. 

We are pleased that again this year there is no mention of activity in Mexicali or Ensenada, Mexico. See the prior blog entry for Mexicali crime statistic comparisons. Ensenada crime statistic comparisons will be posted shortly.

New Travel Reminder:
Limits to Spending US Dollars in Mexico

Track your cash budget while traveling in Mexico. The amount of cash in US Dollars you can spend with one vendor while in Mexico is now $250. Also, you can exchange up to $1,500 US dollars to pesos per month at Mexican banks. This will impact your bigger purchases. If you need to spend more than $250 in one location, make sure you have a credit card or pesos. Be prepared.
