What the travel industry doesn’t want you to know

This website is dedicated to Nolan Webster and the hundreds of other victims that traveled to Mexico for a vacation "beyond their expectations." Tragically, the vacation of their lifetime cost them their life. May they rest in peace.


The Mexico Vacation Awareness Organization is a recognized public charity and is exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. The organization was formed with the hope of achieving two main objectives. The first objective is to create awareness about the many unknown dangers that await you when traveling to Mexico.  How many times have you heard “you will be safe as long as you stay inside the resort?” On this site you will read stories that show staying inside the resort does not ensure your safety. At many resorts in Mexico the levels of health and safety standards are far below those in the U.S. Hundreds of tourists have been negatively impacted by tainted alcohol and low balcony railing heights, as well as lack of lifeguards and non-existent first aid emergency plans. What you read on this website will shock you.

The second objective of our organization is to have a place for victims and their families to tell their stories.  Whether you are a victim of crime, or if a family member or loved one has died while vacationing in Mexico, we want you to share your story.  By sharing your stories on this website, we can all come together in one central place.  By coming together, we will get strong enough to demand that changes be made.  By following the link on this page to the U.S. State Department’s, Death of U.S. citizen’s abroad from non-natural causes you will see that there are hundreds of victims. Appallingly, thirty-two percent of all “non-natural” deaths of U.S. citizens outside this country occur in Mexico. The travel industry and the United States Government have got to make it clear to the Mexico Department of Tourism that Mexico needs to make improving their safety standards a priority.  And that failure to do so will create a serious decline in their tourist industry.

Please use the information on this website to assist you in making an educated decision about whether Mexico, in its current state, is a good vacation choice.
