    I take exception to Russell's comment about Mexico. I have been to the Mayan Riviera 6 times, and I love it. The wall dives are awesome. The Santa Rosa Wall is the second best open water dive I have ever done. (Sec Pate off Guadeloupe is the best.) The caves are stunningly beautiful. Cuzan Na and Nohoch Na Chich are foretastes of Heaven. The Mayan Riviera is pretty safe. The are two working chambers available if you get bent in the Cozumel Channel or the Pit of Dos Ojos. (Does Florida have a working chamber north of Miami?) Cancun and Playa have lower crime rates than Miami. Rio Segreto and Chankanaab Park offer wonderful snorkeling for my wife and children. We all love the folklore shows in Xcaret (expensive) and Playa del Carmen (free!). My wife and son-in-law are fascinated by the ruins at Xaman Ha, Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza, a fusion of Toltec and Maya architecture, is the eighth wonder of the world. The food is usually good, and it is often great. I'll choose La Adela's pollo con mole poblano over steak or lobster any time. Setas a la parilla is hard to find but worth the search. Finally, except for the time-share hustlers, the people are very, very nice.

    Calling Mexico a craphole is hardly xenophobic.

    Please, don't go. Stay at home in your caravan park with a rifle in your lap.
