We have several friends currently (seasonally) cruising Mexico waters, primarily in the area between San Carlos and Manzinillo, some for the first time this year, others for the past several.

We've not heard of any reports of problems with the cruising crowd, and Jalisco is pretty much smack dab in the middle of that region. We spent a week a couple of years back in the Malaque/Manzinillo region and talked to several cruisers and such stories never arose. A small sample, to be sure, and current events may have changed things.

I think in general low profile cruising programs attract fewer problems. So maybe that half baked idea to trade Fairhaven in for an Oyster 62 should be put on hold!
