‘El Chapo’ Son May Be Among Those Kidnapped at Mexico Resort


Half-dozen men were recently abducted in the Mexican beach resort of Puerto Vallarta. While the victims were celebrating in an upscale restaurant, seven armed men entered took them forcefully. Al parecer one of the kidnapped victims was Ivan Archivaldo Guzman, el hijo de Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Jalisco Attorney General Eduardo Almaguer told Radio Formula that “it is presumed,” though not yet certain, that Ivan Archivaldo Guzman was among the kidnapped men. It is believed that Ivan Archivaldo assumed control of parts of his father’s business after he was re-arrested in January.

Pero quienes fueron los asaltantes? Experts believe that the abduction was a work of a criminal group that operates in the area. The largest group operation in the state is the Jalisco New Generation cartel. El cartel de Jalisco has grown quickly to rival Guzman’s Sinaloa cartel as one of the most powerful of Mexico’s drug gangs.


So should tourists avoid Puerto Vallarta? Officials reassured tourists that the kidnapping was an isolated incident y que Vallarta is a safe place for tourists. Jalisco Gov. Aristoteles Sandoval said on his official Twitter account that such violence would not be tolerated. “To the residents and tourists of Puerto Vallarta, I inform you that we have reinforced security so that you can go on as usual.” Y como dicen, “cuando te toca, ni aunque te quites, cuando no te toca, ni aunque te pongas.”
