Guanajuato, Mexico: The Pípila... Things Are Getting Out Of Control.

Juan Martin Hernandez Baez, a vendor in The Pipila where the view is one of the biggest attractions in Guanajuato for Gringo and Mexican tourists, vandalism (graffiti) and attacks on tourists "...are getting out of control."

"Merchants on the Pípila are asking the municipal authorities to increase police surveillance in the area, because lately there have been robberies of tourists." (Periodico A.M.)

Baez says there is no police monitoring which leaves tourist vulnerable to attacks by Guanajuato youth.

The Pipila is one of the most popular tourist attraction in the cit and yet, it is left without police protection. The criminal elements know this and thus take advantage of the lack of police presence.

A pity.
