A Woman's Guide to Traveling in MexicoBook - 2012
Each volume in the Go! Girl travel guides series is specifically designed with a special focus on health and safety for traveling women. Featuring full-color photos, illustrations, and maps, the Go! Girl guides all feature sections on "Before You Go," culture and customs, volunteering, food and recipes, Q&A, and local language usage, all with an eye for overcoming the particular challenges that traveling women may face on their own in a foreign country. Mexico has much to offer a traveling woman: the people, the beaches, and the slow pace of life all make it a struggle to return to the United States when the vacation is over. But narcotics trafficking and related violence have caused the media to focus largely on the negative issues concerning Mexico, making it a seemingly scary place to go. This book shows how Mexico is still a safe and beautiful country when sticking to the right areas and using caution. It avoids the conflict zones of the north, instead focusing on southern Mexico, from ancient ruins to crystal blue seas and lush, tropical jungles.
