The U.S. Department of State says that crime in Mexico varies widely by location with the worst crime reported in the states that border the United States and the south of Mexico, mostly because of drug cartel activity.

According to the Bureau of Consular Affairs, there is currently no travel advisory warning in effect for the areas of Cancún, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya or Tulum.
