I have read there is a lot of boot leg liquor in town. Some supplier must be swapping out the Bacardi and putting in his own bathtub booze.

Just got back from the Rivera Maya last Wednesday. Place seemed fairly safe but it was a nice resort. Would like to know the names of the resorts involved.

Had a friend whos wife was drugged last week there guessing was in and out of consciousness for about 30hrs!

They drugged her at a resort? Or in town? Was she at a hospital? Or hotel room?

My daughter and her BF went a couple years ago. Was at the pool bar in the morning and my daughter felt real light headed so they went back to the room. On the way he started feeling weird also. They laid down and woke up the next day. Fuck all of Mexico 🖕

Sad story.... His friend and fellow firefighter was so distraught over his death that he shot his portion of the news story at his side business "Texas Hog Bait" so he could get some free publicity...:rolleyes:

I noticed that as well and found it odd.....

It is well known that allot of Mexican resorts make their own booze or get homemade booze. Mainly its the all Inclusive resorts so you need to stay away from the house margaritas or house tequila shots. Most of the time it is fine but sometimes there are bad batches. There were some news stories about some booze being made with fentanyl. Stick with beer or higher shelf stuff if you see it being poured directly from bottle.

Take a deep breath man, it ain't worth your energy.
To be honest, his question sure sounded valid. When I vacation with my wife, that's who I spend my time with, not a bunch of random dudes.

Maybe that how they like to vacation...

We stayed at the place he was found as my friends have a timeshare, (the place where they were staying next door was being built when we were there) and drank a lot. Never encountered any problems luckily.

I hear all these stories and I still go. Never have had a issue but I also don't do stupid shit when down there. Hell I have to walk though East Village to Padre game Wednesday. Probably just as dangerous.

Mexico is a cartel run shit hole. With a mixture of the predator types ( from out of country)that go there to to look for easy Americans to jack,and local predator types that look for easy prey. Oh and there is good people there just they can't say or do anything because the lawless environment. lol America's not far behind

Been going to mexico for many years, never had an issue, ever. Mostly go to Cabo. Always a great time. We will be going again next year. Just be smart about it and done dont be dumb, dont get so drunk that you are not aware of your surroundings or what you are being served. But goes for the same here in the states. Watch what your being poured and dont walk down dark alleys at night.


And for the ones that say that shit is ran by the "cartels", you need to relize that most "resort towns" the resorts are American owned!

I spend a minimum of 8 weekends a year in Baja, from the Southern tip to the Northern border. To say there are good people that can't say anything is stupid. The entire peninsula is filled with great people, and while there are certainly Cartels, there are also Cartel Towns, typically the border towns. If you act like you would here in the states, and maybe even a little bit more respectful, you will have a great time and completely stay out of trouble. Like mentioned above, Me, my wife, my kids, and all my friends have never had an issue. But we don't go down there acting like Douche Bags and begging for trouble.

Lol. Ok. The thread is about someone who was in Cancun,And to say that it's mainly border towns is stupid ! The cartels run Mexico if you don't want to believe that and believe the government does you should educate yourself on the current situation in Mexico. Baja is different for sure,you sound like have nice area you've been going for year s and not had any problems... great ! Cartels don't mess with Baja for the most part. Rival cartels in other mainland Mexico whole different story.that being said this incident was not cartel ,never said it was ,Look up
Edsmanifesto.com he basically spells it out, former high official with Mexican government and worked for us intelligence.
Anyways the thread is about a tragic event. Don't want to lose site of that. Very sad for sure.

I don't go anymore, and won't for the anytime in the near future. Even Baja has become quite sketchy. Between Ensenada and TJ, they're averaging 1 reported homicide per day. They used to just happen in the slums, now in downtown, even a nice beachside winery a couple weeks ago. Like everything else though, it's fine, until it is not.

Just one? Shit…they’re doing better than Long Beach.
