Yes, traveling in Mexico is safe. Mexico is among the world´s most popular tourist destinations, and each year millions of people safely enjoy their visit to Mexico. Unfortunately, however, negative reports about Mexico have appeared in the international media frequently over the past years. But international media often show violent crime without telling the whole story. These news items about Mexico have to be put in its context. First of all, Mexico is a huge country. Drug-related violence mostly occurs in certain regions near the border with the USA or places located on drug-trafficking routes. Tourists are not targeted, and in the vast majority of the country, you can travel safely. Some Mexican states, Yucatan for example, even see less violence than many rural areas in the USA. It has also been said that Washington DC (relatively) counts four times more homicides than Mexico City. Mexico´s famous beaches and cultural treasures are hundreds of miles away from isolated border violence, and they are often safer than many popular tourist destinations elsewhere.
If you want to have a more in-depth understanding of the current safety situation in Mexico, check official travel advisories issued by national governments. Be aware that the safety situation in a certain region can change rather rapidly sometimes.
