CANCUN – Emerald Archer, pretty in a pink bikini top and carrying a foot-long plastic glass filled with a flamingo-colored cocktail, strolls the wide white sands of Playa Chac-Mool with three friends from Toledo.
The quartet has a message for those back home who are, in Archer’s words, “burning up the phone” with messages of concern about their being in Mexico. The country has been making headlines with drug-war-related kidnappings and killings, and the U.S. State Department has had a travel warning for Mexico in place since fall, though it mainly involves border towns and violence-plagued cities such as Acapulco and Monterrey, which are on the other side of Mexico from Cancun. Cruise ships have been stopping calls at Mazatln. Recently, the Texas Department of Public Safety took the unusual step of counseling college students to avoid spring breaks south of the border.
“We haven’t been beheaded,” Archer, a 26-year-old dental assistant, says with a grin. “We’ve had no problems. People need to chill out.”
