Los Cabos named the safest tourist destination in Mexico
Los Cabos is the Mexican tourist destination where both visitors and locals feel the safest.
The most recent rankings of the “perception of security” poll, which is conducted several times annually by Mexico’s federal Institute for data collection (INEGI), are available.
This ranking was created using questionnaires that were distributed to residents of almost all of Mexico’s cities. Generally speaking, the questionnaire asks residents and visitors if they have recently witnessed violent crimes like robberies or shootings.
Additionally, it asks them to rate their sense of safety in their city of residence. The lower the score, the better in this case. Los Cabos received 22.7 out of a possible 30 points, making it the safest city in all of the relevant Mexican cities.
As was already mentioned, the points are distributed in accordance with the various responses that individuals provide to a range of questions, not just the simple scale of 1 to 10 for how safe you feel at a location.
La Paz, which is the second most popular tourist destination in the state of Baja California Sur, only behind Los Cabos, features a safety perception rating of 33.
This is still a very good rating. In fact, La Paz and Cabo have flipped spots in the rankings at times from update to update.
Both destinations, though, have remained well within the low 30s and 20s in the rating.
