Normally, we don’t pay much attention to the tourists, but every once in a while one of them makes the news. Having lived in a resort town before, it made perfect sense to me that Chapo was here (beyond having significant business interests in town… it’s not all play and no work in a seaport). At about a thousand US a month, it’s a bit pricey for most of us who live here, but the kind of place that is full of vacationers and foreigners.

In a normal Mexican neighborhood, any newcomer is going to be noticed… among tourists, no. Who is going to pay attention to one more outsiders living in a rather nice, but not particularly ostentatious rental apartment?

Even if your neighbor just happens to be some criminal mastermind with a it’s no reason to disrupt your vacation … take the family for a stroll along the beach and get some souvenir photos… though I can’t guarantee you’ll find yourself on TV.
