The Mexico Vacation Awareness Organization is a recognized public
charity and is exempt under section 501( c )(3) of the IRS Code.
The organization was formed with the hope of achieving two main
objectives. The first objective is to create awareness about the
many unknown dangers that await you when traveling to Mexico.
How many times have you heard “you will be safe as long as you
stay inside the resort”? On this site you will read
stories that show staying inside the resort does not ensure your
safety. At many resorts in Mexico the levels of safety standards
are far below those in the U.S. From low balcony railing
heights, to lack of lifeguards at the pools, to non-existent
first aid emergency plans. What you read on this website will
The second objective of our organization is to have a place for victims and their families to tell their stories. Whether you are a victim of crime, or if a family member or loved one has died while vacationing in Mexico, we want you to share your story. By sharing your stories on this website, we can all come together in one central place. By coming together, we will get strong enough to demand that changes be made. By following the link on this page to the U.S. State Department’s, Death of U.S. citizen’s abroad from non-natural causes you will see that there are hundreds of victims. Appallingly, thirty-two percent of all “non-natural” deaths of U.S. citizens outside this country occur in Mexico. The travel industry and the United States Government have got to make it clear to the Mexico Department of Tourism that Mexico needs to make improving their safety standards a priority. And that failure to do so will create a serious decline in their tourist industry.
Please use the information on this website to assist you in making an educated decision about whether Mexico, in its current state, is a good vacation choice.
