Is Cancun safe?

by ericabrooks02 »

Cancun is as safe as any other tourist place in the world. I think wherever you go as a tourist there are certain precautions you need to take like respecting the locals customs, not getting drunk to the extent you cannot manage yourself, not travelling alone, be in public places at night. Follow these and you will be safe in any tourist place.  I am planning my cancun trip as well and creating my itinerary at http://www.triphobo.com/cancun-mexico, I am not much worried about the safety factor, as I do adhere to the above points everywhere I go. I have not been in trouble till date..

I was there in September, I felt safe, I didn't rent a car and drive out and about, I had tour companies pick me up and drop me off, way easier than dealing with driving down there.

My wife and I have just returned home after a two week holiday in the Mayan Riviera. We go every year and have never heard or run into any problems. We are always venturing out of the resort to experience the real Mexican life. and Travel and transport agency are very friendly and coperative. when we went to cancun , we took shuttle service from oscarcancunshuttle.com and really very good.. so whenever you will go cancun, we can take shuttle service from them... some people seem to think when they hear about violence in Mexico, it's all over Mexico. It would be like saying we should not go to the U.S. because of the violence in Chicago or New York.  

Hope my suggestion help for you!!!! Thanks...

I would say that it is safe. What you mgiht read in the news does not affect everyday people. Unless you get involved in the substance wars, you are safe. And while you are there, try their mouthwaterin street food! You will love it.
