Tourists are starting to fear for their safety after a string of horrific murders in Cancun, Mexico.
On April 4-5, the popular tourist destination experienced 14 homicides over the span of 36 hours. The deaths occurred in six different incidents and are believed to be targeted and tied to organized crime.
Unfortunately, the violence isn’t new to Mexico. In October 2017, Mexico saw 35,000 hotel nights canceled for the next year after violence erupted and the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory. Then on March 16, a level 2 travel warning was issued for Mexico, stating that travelers should “exercise increased caution.”
