Mexico is such a disaster. It is 100% OFF our cruising destinations list. I wouldn't be surprised if civil war broke out (if they are not already there). I guess it depends on what your definition of anarchy and civil war are??

I know this is gonna sound cold, but that just looks like Darwinism at work, to me. You wouldn't catch me "near" the border with Mexico, on land or water, much less over it--unarmed and on nothing more than a water gnat.

Of course "near" is a relative thing: Signs in Arizona warn of smuggler dangers.

For info on piracy check out National Geospatial Agencies (NGA) page on marine intelligence.The info is invaluable.
Bottom line is that if you take off in a boat and go to an area where your boat is worth more than someones lifetimes work you can expect to attract the attention of somone looking to make some easy money!

+1.

We lived in Hermosillo, Sonora for a year and spent a lot of time in San Carlos as well. Mexico has some really incredible places to see and some truly great people - but it is one seriously whacked out society in general. Hard to see it getting better without some huge changes.

I'd like to say the above attack is unbelievable. But it's not at all.

There's also Amistad. The whole border region is just bad news right now.
