The Tuscany of Baja, San Antonio Del Mar

There were 8 San Diego Policeman accused of suggesting exchange for sex to set aside DUI tickets to woman last year. One was put on trail and recently sent to prison a few months ago for multiple counts. I was approached near Horton Plaza Parking lot last year by a deranged homeless man who looked me in the eye and said he was going to stab me. There is corrupt Police in both Mexico and in the US. What to believe? You are no more likely to be a victim of crime in Mexico than the US. Its a 100 % fact the the US media reports 90% bad about Mexico. The perception then is distorted to the truth. I have lived in Baja for two years. I have previously visited Baja for over 30 years on a regular basis. I frequently talk to many of the thousands of Americans that live here for 20 to 30 years. They all echo what I have said in the articles I have written. I am sorry when I hear stories like the one referenced in a comment and sorry his daughter had such a problem with the Police. I recently read an article that stated that there are over 1 million retired Americans in Mexico which makes it the largest number of any other country outside the US. It predicted there will be 10 million in 8 more years. The Secretary of Tourism for Baja recently stated that over 300,000 people cross into Baja for some type of medical treatment every month. This number is expected to grow in the near future with the growth of Medical Tourism.
