For the last 3 years, my wife and I, along with 3 other couples, have vacationed around the western U.S. and into B.C. on the bike. This year, we are having trouble finding a destination that we haven't been to that is within a 11 day riding window and leaves enough time to site see. The idea of riding into Mexico, maybe to Cabo San Lucas, came up and was shelved due to concerns about safety in today's world, and road conditions for a bike pulling a trailer as all four of us pull one. My questions are these: Have any of you made a trip into Mexico in the last few years, and if so, what was the feeling you had as far as safety, and what were the roads like? Obviously, we can't carry a gun, at least not if we want to come home any time soon. Did you feel the need, or wish you could carry? Would you go again, or recommend the trip?
