Hi all -
I have a planned trip to Guanajuato next month with my wife and could not help but notice recent news reports indicating what appears to be an increase in crime in the state. We've done our fair share of travelling in Mexico (think we're up to 12 states now) & although I am not a paranoid type, I always like to be aware of the latest situation before assessing if & where we go... We will only be there about a week and are only planning on being in León & Guanajuato (city) this trip. Here are a few of the recent articles I came across when searching Guanajuato in the news that caught my eye:

No, I'm not here for fearmongering but simply would like to hear informed opinions on this topic. All comments are welcome :).
