MaryLou Austin Gun pulled on me on an LA Freeway, caught in crossfire of 2 cars shooting at each other in Glendale, etc. San Felipe? Safe, quiet, tranquil, community where like Candy says, people help each other. Friendly and quite wonderful.

People ask me if Im scared travelin to Mexico, I say yes from Oregon to L.A, to the border, i'm scared and feel danger. Then I cross the border into Mexico and I feel safe all the way to San Felipe. Got a flat once on the way and had help within minutes. People are friendly and helpful here. We don't have car jackings and high speed chases. We dont have armed robberies. We just have a peacful interactive community! The Baja is awsome!!!

Susan Gardenier Rodgers I feel very safe in San Felipe, but take standard precautions that would ANYWHERE.

Gene Pisasale I felt safe dining on fresh shrimp tacos right there on the edge of the beach in San Felipe...but that was 20 years ago... May have changed a bit since then...
*
Linda Martinez I feel safer here than anywhere I've lived.

Christina Jonine Winston I have never felt safer than I do in Mexico !! San Felipe and Ensenada are two of the safest towns I have ever lived in ...

Patti Haynes Krall ‎30+ years....no horror stories.....drove Fri night after work to get to the house, what else can I say?

*
Lloyd Sizemore I spent 37 years in the U.S. Army and lived all over the world. I have never lived in a place that I have felt safer. I have a motor home sitting on my property and have never had a problem even when I have been away for months. The police have always been fair and helpful as well as everyone I have met there.
*
Gene Pisasale Well, that's it. I'm 20 years overdue for a freshly grilled shrimp taco right on the beach. San Felipe, here I come!!!!!!!!
*
Walter Sonnenberg I feel very safe coming down for 15 years 4to5 mo.at a time

*
Linda Gordon I went the first time in 1968. In some ways it is still the same, although very different population wise. Last year was the first time in the 25 years we have had our house we had a problem when my quad was stolen. I still go by myself several times a year and tell my friends how safe I feel.
*
Susan Young We love living in San Felipe. Was in Sacramento last month... didn't feel safe there... too much going on in the neighborhood.
*
Candy Hunter I have been coming to San Felipe since 1989 and have lived here full time since 2004. I feel safer here than in the States for sure. People look out for each other here unlike anyplace I have ever lived.
*
Chuck Lundy I'm in San Felipe right now. This is my first trip and I'm with 2 other Dad's and 3 little boys. Safety is obviously not a concern here, it's quiet and peaceful. We are more concerned with not being able to rent a couple jet skis.

I was down there around 1990...drove my 1983 Honda Accord down from San Diego and had the bright idea to bring it out onto the beach. Not good. Blew out my clutch trying to get out. I got stuck- and a guy who called himself "Tricky Dick" had a tow truck, pulled me off the sand and all the way into town, up the side of a mountain where we found a few young hungry mechanics. They put in a new clutch for $90!! That was my one close-call adventure in San Felipe... the other times have all been more fun...
*
Gene Pisasale By the way, if anyone knows Tricky Dick (very nice gentleman), please give him my best... He saved me from a possibly very negative outcome...and set me back, straight on course... Thanks Dick!!!!

I am 71y/o female and have lived by myself for 11 years here in S.F.I have never had a problem and never have I found people who will help you at all times. I also travel all over by myself and have never had a problem . When I had a flat in the Desert two Mexican men worked for over a hour to fix it and would not take a penny for helping me I walk all over at night and again I feel very safe. I suggest people come and see for themselves how wonderful S.F. is

I just had this conversation with a friend of mine. He swears Mexico is unsafe and that he would never come visit because of the drug cartel problems in Mexico. I tried to tell him till I was blue in the face that San Felipe is safe, and that I feel much safer there then in Sacramento. Some people just don't get it. I love San Felipe! We visit every chance we get. My in-laws live there full time and have for many years and have never had a problem there or at the border. my hubby and I will retire and live there half 6 years. Looking so forward to it.

Derek Wille San Felipe is 500% safer than Washington DC, where me and my wife are from. We had 2 murders within 100 yards of our house in DC. No murders in our neighborhood down here. I don't worry about my wife walking around our neighborhood at night down here, forget it in the states. America just got tired of all the people fleeing the states and bringing their money down here.
