The number of tourists has skyrocketed since the beginning of the Covid pandemic when people could no longer go to the office. Many of them decided to make resort areas like Bacalar, Chetumal, and Mahahual on the Mexican-Caribbean their home away from home.
But the region’s hoteliers are done with their competing scofflaws. They’re pleading with the Ministries of Finance and Tourism to do complete inspections and root out people ignoring the law.
Overall, Mexico doesn’t get the best reviews for safety. The safest places to go: Cancun or any place along the Mexican Riviera.
Yucatan is also safe.
But you can still have a wonderful vacation in many parts of Mexico. Just do some research and ask questions before you make a reservation, follow travel advisories, and use common sense to stay safe.
