US DOS Travel warning

Quintana Roo (includes Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, and Tulum): U.S. citizens should be aware that according to Government of Mexico statistics, the state of Quintana Roo experienced an increase in homicide rates compared to 2016. While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens. Shooting incidents, in which innocent bystanders have been injured or killed, have occurred.


I like Cozumel but I've never taken the ferry over to Quintana Roo

Thanks for posting! It is wise to always be alert to your surroundings, if you are traveling or staying at home. Sometimes, when on vacation, it is easy to forget ....please stay vigilant as your travel and be aware of possible dangers.

Thanks again, Todd!

Mexican cities can be dangerous, but so are American and Canadian cities. I wonder if the Mexican government posts warnings about visiting NYC, Miami, LA, Vancouver, Toronto etc Wink
