I go every year and I'm all over and never had a problem, and never seen a crime, or heard of anything going down, always travel in groups ,use the buddy system, keep your head on a swivel , don't be flashing your money and you'll b good

I´ve lived for about 10 Years in San Luis Potosi, I can not say that Mexico in general is safe you will need to be careful all the time any were here. I moved from the north of mexico because of violence, here in San Luis is not so bad. Any way i think that you get used to be not safe it is sad but true.
During these 10 years 3 of my friends were kidnapped in different situations, so make you choice.

Became victim of armed robbery in the area where most of the hotels are in July 2016

Avoid this place if you can. Police and officials cannot ensure youre safety. You will see a lot of militars too... and Im not sure they can protect you either. I had a ver bad experience going out with some friends, ended up paying off this guys TWICE, so they would let us go back to our hotel... not going back ever.

Not a good place... people are not so friendly and there is just one area of the city that can be categorized as "safe", however its far from the airport. (And really I'm not that sure it can be called safe). Even going to a soccer match can end up in a shooting... not fun.
