I am leaving for Ixtapa in 3 weeks. I am just wondering if anyone has recently been there. I am concerned with everything that has been on the news regarding safety. There is plenty of crime here in Chicago so I am not trying to sound like I come from a crime free area, but everything I have been listening to and reading has me concerned. I am just wondering if it is unsafe to travel to Ixtapa now and also is it unsafe traveling from the airport in Zihuatanejo to the hotel zone in Ixtapa? I have never been there so I am not sure what to expect. Thanks for any input, it is greatly appreciated.

RELAX! As a former resident of Chicago & a long timer in Zihua I'd take a walk at midnight in Zihua long before I would in Chi Town. Far safer.

PS I am spending March there.
