Is there a lot of crime in Lake Chapala?

Answer this Question

We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered...

"Crime in Mexico is very fluid based on what is happening with the cartels and their fight for turf. Lake Chapala is generally safe for expats, as the government is keen to keep crime down in order to keep foreign money flowing in. However, we have had crime waves where Mexicans have been brutally victimized. Petty crimes such as purse-snatching are rare," remarked another expat who made the move to Lake Chapala, Mexico.

"The crime rate in Lake Chapala, is relatively low compared to other cities in Mexico. Although petty crime is present, more serious criminal activities such as armed robberies and drug trafficking are rare. Local law enforcement is actively working to deter criminal activity, and visitors to the region are encouraged to take appropriate safety precautions," explained one expat living in Lake Chapala, Mexico.
