Common Sense Gay and Lesbian Travel Trips from Fabugo

MEXICO – In the News –

An increase in drug-related violence along the U.S. and Mexico border
has prompted the U.S. Department of State to issue a Travel Alert for U.S. citizens traveling to Mexico.
MOST Mexico destinations ARE NOT affected. And while not advising against travel to Mexico, the alert does offer  common sense precautions that all travelers should take when visiting Mexico.(or ANY other foreign city, for that matter). 

 As a provider of travel for the gay and lesbian community, Fabugo is committed to providing our customers the tools and information to help make their Mexico or any vacation a safe one.

“When planning a vacation to Mexico, there are several factors to consider, but probably the most
important is location,” said Jason Rhen, Fabugo’s Managing Director. “There are several gay-popular
resorts like Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas, which are all a great
distance from the violence and media attention
. We always urge our customers to travel smart and
be safe, regardless of their destination.”

Gay and lesbian travelers should always be aware and never be complacent when traveling to Mexico
resort destinations. As always, it is critical that gay and lesbian travelers exercise common sense
practices to help ensure their safety, including:

• Pre-plan your transportation from the airport to your hotel. This is best through a contracted
transfer company usually available with a vacation package purchase. Fabugo offers
roundtrip airport/hotel transfers to contracted hotels within Mexico vacation destinations.

• Do not travel, walk, hike or tour alone. It is always best to travel with at least one other
person, preferably in a group. Do not walk at night in unlighted areas where there is little
tourist activity. Use common sense in regard to public displays of affection.

• Choose your hotel in a popular tourist location selecting one that works with U.S. tour
operators and maintains those contacts. Fabugo offers a large variety of hotels in resort areas
and maintains relationships and contact with them.

• Avoid drinking too much to ensure you are always aware of your surroundings and can act
appropriately in any situation. Make sure you drink with friends and that you leave with them
to return to your hotel.

• If you travel away from the tourist areas of your destination, be sure to only do so with a
registered tour guide or tour company. Fabugo offers scheduled tours for our customers that
can be arranged with a contracted tour company when you book your vacation.

Avoid being a target for robbery. Keep cash, jewelry and other items hidden; keep passport  and other documents in a safe in your room. (To be extra safe, make a photo copy of your passport as well. Just in case). Do not use an ATM at night. Be careful at the beach. Common sense can help you avoid a vacation-ruining crime.

• Remember to be careful. Mexico is not the Castro in San Francisco and the culture is typically
much more conservative. Always remain conscious of your surroundings and use common
sense to ensure you don’t make poor judgements.

and is proud to offer a quality vacation product to gay and lesbian-popular resort destinations. We urge gay and lesbian travelers to always travel smart and make safety your number one priority when traveling anywhere, including Mexico.
