Yucatan as Safe as Wyoming, Montana, Oregon and Maine

The Mexican state of Yucatán, site of three terrific IFSA-Butler semester and summer programs, boasts a lower overall crime rate than Canada and the U.S., and its homicide rate is slightly lower than those of Wyoming, Montana, Oregon and Maine.

These statistics and other details about the beauty and tranquility of the Yucatán can be found on BanderasNews.com. IFSA-Butler also has a special page with links to articles about the state of Yucatán and the city of Mérida, where our program is based.
