NOTHING UNUSUAL, anything is possible in Mexico. Children are kidnapped and held for ransom & prostitution all the time. And then again maybe they were beaten up because the parents owe somebody SOME MONEY.

I just read this "Beautiful",,,and my heart goes out to these boys,,,and you...
Good luck... I wish you all the luck, and prayers. I don't understand people who can hurt a child... in any way..
How sad. One would only think that they were kidnapped for ransom. Happens all the time here in Mexico. It is in the papers all the time. They even kidnap them from the schools, so many of the schools here in Mexico have had to put up security. Many of the young women from the "Tech de Monterrey" school in Monterrey and were being kidnapped from the school and rapped. The problem is the criminals get away with so much down here.

I read where a taxi driver from Juarez, Mexico had just dropped off a fare at the El Paso airport. He saw a man and a woman in the back seat of a car. The man shot the driver in the back of the head. The woman ran into the airport and the shooter in another direction. They were both caught within 10 minutes. The taxi driver from Juarez made a comment that was quoted in the El Paso Times. He said the difference between the police in Mexico and in the USA, is that in the USA the police catch the criminals. Amen to that!

I agree with you. How can anyone hurt a child. I hope they find out what really happened.

Sad,, and such a beautiful country,,and so much pain..and so much bad. I was talking to a couple today that are going on a cruise, and they cut Mazatlan out of the itinerary,,because it has become so violent..
I was in Mazatlan five years ago, and it was so peaceful, beautiful, friendly and we felt completely safe. What the hell has gone wrong???
It is so sad.... I have been to five places in Mexico over the years,,but now no one wants to go anymore...
I do hope that things get better there,,as I want to come back.
The best place to go would be Puerto Vallarta. The best thing to do is stay in the hotel grounds at night. In the day do not talk to tauts that are peddling anything from Condo's to free meals, and free trips. Do not tack an offer from anyone to take you into a restaurant for great food with a free drink or something of that nature. Ask to have your drinks opened at the table if dining out of the resort if possible. I have been drugged. My uncle and Aunt were drugged on e hour excursion into Mexico. Walk in groups and sadly try not to talk to anyone that approaches you. Even my wife here in Mexico and her friend yelled at me and made me drive away from a guy in a truck, that saw I was an American and wanted to talk about where he lived in Denver before he got deported.

Lots of Americans live in PV and they are doing fine. But they know the ropes. Just like you would need to know them in many big Cities in the USA. I remember one night staying in Houston when I came back from a walk. Everyone was shocked that I walked down a road called shooters alley at night without getting shot at or mugged. Maybe they were exaggerating a little but I got their drift.

The people that live here know the ropes and what not to do. You as a tourist should also. I cannot remember but I read here that all the police of Cancun and Puerto Vallarta are working for the Narco's. They are being investigated by the army. The Mayor of the town in one denies the charges and the Mayor in the other welcomed the help from the army. It is in the papers here. But they are not bothering the tourists if you do not give them a reason. I would suggest that if you are a very beautiful and attractive woman that you stay in the resorts or with groups in jaunts about during the day. You draw too much attention for obvious reasons.

The biggest thing you have to watch out for is petty crime. Use the same common sense you would use when traveling in any country. I know in Rome, Italy we were accosted by the gypsies and one man unknown to him had his wallet stolen.

People know you are traveling and that you have money to spend and nice things like cameras and ipods. Never put your money or valuables in the hotel safe. Leave the jewelry and expensive watches at home. You are a walking teller machine for criminals in other countries and they know it. The police usually will not do much to help you.

If you go to New Orleans during Mardi Gras you have to watch out for pick pockets.

Stay away from Acapulco. Lots of crime and killings now. The Baja is just as safe as many most places in the USA. Cancun or PV would be a great choice. Always fly as the roads have bandits that set up road blocks and take everything. I have had Mexican friends here that recently lost everything while driving from Chihuahua City, Chihuahua to Mazatlan.

The Mexican people are friendly and willing to help you. But their a lot of criminals because the people are so poor there.

I would not worry and enjoy your trip. But follow the rules and be alert as you would in any country.

How has a thread about the tragic story of two abandoned boys in Mexico turned into a travel guide for cyber-Harley riders?

First of all you know nothing about my life..or what I do.
I also have no quarrel with you, nor you me. I have not posted any ill remarks to you,,so you need not post any to me. If you are looking for a fight,,go elsewhere,,,as I am not wasting my time with any more of your types of fools on here. I find it waste of my time..and energy that could be better used elsewhere.
I also take your remarks about harleys and riders to mean that you are upset that I am not on the back of yours(if you got one), but on the back of someone elses.
Have a nice day.
If you were ever on the back of any of my bikes, trust me, it would be because you stole it.

I do apologize for topic going off in a different direction,, not really off topic,,,as it is about violence in Mexico, and some are concerned enough to warn would be travellers.
Please keep us informed of any news on these boys.
Hoping it is good news of course.
Have a great day..
Take a look at these forums. One way or another they all seem to get off topic and sometimes never get back on topic because people are attacking each other. Look at the topics that have 15,000 posts. You will see for yourself. Gets pretty crazy sometimes. But you cannot take them personal, as you said they do not know you and you do not know them.

I live here in Mexico as an American, so yeah, I do mingle with the locals. But you should not go if you are going outside of the safe areas right now. I was held at gunpoint with my friend from California on a road named Cosala just outside of Mazatlan. They thought we were DEA and a 13 year old boy asked if he could be the one to shoot us. Lot of fast talking got us out of that one. They even offered us some beers afterward and said they would watch our backs.

So I am making this a personal message to you, so as to not be off topic. Will that work, LOL.
