El Tule is a beach which is popular with surfers and is located midway between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo. Tragedy struck last week when a Canadian woman died as a result of an accident whilst on a whale watching tour.

These latest incidents have re-opened the debate about how safe it is to vacation in Mexico. Last night, online forums were buzzing with concerned citizens commenting on the incident, one post from a user named as 'John Broadbent5' stated, "How can some possibly suggest that Mexico is safe for Canadian tourists as other countries, given the number of incidents over the past few years? How many Canadian Tourists were beaten to death in Britain, or the USA, or all of Europe for that matter?". Beneath was a reply from 'kcdist' who retorted, "Look at the stats... ...the number of incidents vs. the number of visitors on an annual basis, then factor out the high riskers, and the criminals. For the vast majority of normal folk, Mexico is [as] as safe as Winnipeg, Calgary or Vancouver. Just apply common sense when anywhere unfamiliar"


The number of incidents recently are concerning of course, and the debate will rage on. You can read our article on safety in Mexico here.
