    Nicole,I know an elderly couple who moved to guadalajara and they didn't say anything about crime rates being too horrible.Although they were robbed once.Just be careful crossing the street because if someone hits you they will make sure they kill you so you can't sue them for maiming you.Also be aware of your surroundings.You could easily be tricked into a bad situation.Avoid getting involved with drug lords,too.Do NOT take a taxi.Stay indoors at night.They said it is goregeous,though.Plus the beach isn't that faraway.Above all BE A SAFE TRAVELLER!!!
