My boyfriend and I are considering staying for 7 nights at the Grand Palladium resort in Riviera Maya. I have heard wonderful things about Mexico's culture, people, beaches, food, etc and would love to go but I am very concerned by all of the recent reports of drug violence throughout the country.
Is Riviera Maya a safe place to travel for vacation as a tourist? Is there a history of drug-related violence in the area? Are we taking a risk with our safety by going there?
Would appreciate any advice that anyone has.
