is Riveria and Cancun safe???

Is Riveria and Cancun safe to travel to? as we are considering heading there for our honeymoon but are concerned because of all the recent and increasingly violent incidents and deaths in Mexico

This subject has been commented on repeatedly and on every board. So a word search with "SAFE" and you will get lots of responses that say it is.

If you read the articles and do some research you will see that all the violence and murders are around the US/Mexican borders. No where near Cancun.

much safer than Enniskillen! The publicity is for areas very, very far from this safe tourist haven called the Yucatan Peninsula. And Puerto Morelos is a small village. (Cancun-being a large city has it's share of problems but not for tourists)

All my friends are horrified that we are going to ERC and Puerto Morelos and they all remark about the violence.

I've resorted to simply telling them "It's like telling someone not to visit Florida because there are murders in California."

They kinda get it then.....

Have a great trip, we are due there in 11 days and have no qualms whatsoever....

Watch out for the vicious gangs of blackbirds that land on the lawns at ERC and try to steal your crumbs.

(OK. "Dives dives" are actually harmless.)

I am really shocked at how many people mention kidnappings and violence when we tell them we just returned from Mexico. I felt more safe there than some big cities in the midwest.
