My Q is: I would like to do it again it safe? My plan is to rent a GSA and take my wife with me. I am fluent in Spanish and know the roads very well. My worries are military "reten" and touring around say Tepoztlan's back roads and be ambushed just like the Embassy car was in Tres Marias.
Any input highly appreciated. I am plying with the idea of doing it this December, taking 2 weeks to explore.

Unless you are involved in the drug business or you are a high placed employee of the Mexican or U.S. Government, you don't have much to worry about other than livestock and pot holes and poorly marked construction sites. Don't worry about having a good time ;because you will.
I got tired of being here, so now I'm there
