Some safety tips for a safe trip to Sonora, Mexico.




Oh, where to begin. This is an important subject, for several reasons. Partying can have its risks regardless of where you are, but when you consider that you will be partying in a foreign country, safety takes on even greater significance.

This isn't meant to be an all-inclusive list of safety tips, if you think of some more that should be added to the list, send them to us.

First and foremost, stay in control. If you drink too much and have one of those nights where you wake up in the morning not remembering much of the night before, chances are you may wake up without your wallet, watch, car keys and any other valuables you had.

Be aware of your surroundings. If it seems that some people are looking at you the wrong way, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're paranoid. Make sure that you or someone else is watching your drink at all times. And if a place doesn't feel safe, then leave.

Stay with your travel companions. The buddy system is a great way to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations. Keep an eye on each other.

Dress appropriately for where you're going to be. If you are going to be at a Rocky Point dance club or other tourist destination, it will undoubtedly be secure and well monitored. But if you decide to mix with the locals at a cantina, dress down. If you wear that expensive watch or jewelry, you'll attract the kind of attention you don't want.
