Of course the covid-19 pandemic has severely shut down international travel, even to such important trade countries as nearby Canada and Mexico. The pandemic has curtailed visitor travel and corporate travel. Yet, corporate and general business interests went on throughout 2020 and into 2021. And Americans are very anxious to board planes, vaccinated and confident, and head out to compass points that include exotic beaches, sun, massages, great food and day/night deep relaxing fun. Mexico is beckoning for VIP travelers and corporate suite executives seeking to open up or close new deals. Bodyguards are part of the logistics for such journeys.
Mexico—from the perspective of a professional executive protection and threat assessment company—is not emerging out of the pandemic as demonstrably different from before the pandemic when it was considered high-risk. Mexico is considered a hostile environment by us in this business. Mexico as is well known is riddled with narco war lords with their paramilitary platoons and police and other government authorities successfully bribed by the narcos.
What a responsible executive protection person will tell you is that, yes, business or pleasure travel to Mexico can be done in these times as we’re on the threshold of travel again, but it must be done in conjunction with excellent contacts in the region that is traveled through. This means a network of contacts who are totally trustworthy. If you’re thinking of traveling to Mexico, and need bodyguard services, please contact us for an elite threat assessment and the best close protection services.
