Just wondering, is Playa Del Carmen safer than Cancun? Thanks!
Yes it is...smaller community and fewer nuts.
Yes. but dont do the side streets late at night like any other place that you dont know. Stay safe.
That really depends on where you are staying. We have gone to Cancun and stayed AI and barely left the resort, very safe. I have also taken my kids to Cancun alone, and never had any fears as long as we stayed in the hotel zone.
Crime can happen anywhere. Summer 2005, my family took the hotel zone bus to downtown Cancun. I am a firefighter so I always try to visit the local station. The station in Cancun (City) is far off the tourist track. We walked around, granted it was day, and had no problems what-so-ever, visited the station, and hopped on a local bus to take us back to the main area of Cancun.
When we walked around PDC this past summer, I felt very safe but we were hastled every couple of minutes to look in someone's store. That was very annoying.
