Is it safe to travel to Cancun?

I am looking at travelling to Cancun for a holiday, however, I have found this report that was released today that has ranked Quintana Roo 28 out of 32 in order of peacefulness in Mexico...What do you think? Is this right?

The state is not representative of Cancun. You could read the numerous trip reports on here or read the legitimate media. How many stories are there of tourists being robbed, raped, murdered or made to wear silly hats? Cancun is probably the safest place in Mexico. The drug cartels have a saying.. don't make doo doo on your doorstep. Do you really think they are going to have shoot outs in their hotel zone and risk the laundering operation?

Actually Cancun is a high crime area but tourist victims are relatively few - you could say the same about Orlando!
