Cancun Reinforces Surveillance Service To Boost Tourist Safety

Cancun Reinforces Surveillance Service To Boost Tourist Safety

The Secretary for Citizen Safety was out at the municipality’s public beaches, such as El Niño and Punta Sam, to monitor the integrity of beachgoers and visitors there.

The agents carry out patrols on the main streets of Superblock 89 and also enter the beach area to carry out actions of social proximity with visitors and citizens, in addition to the official patrols to prevent crimes in the area.

Also present in the tours are elements of the Dog Squad of the Northern Zone, such as “Logan”, that assist in surveillance and prevention, the location of firearms, explosives and narcotics.

The agency pointed out that surveillance continues permanently in the areas with the greatest public traffic and on the beaches of tourist destinations, as part of the prevention strategies of the New Model of Citizen Security of Quintana Roo.

U.S. State Department Advisories For Mexico

Travel warnings issued by the U.S. Department of State are currently in effect for almost all states in Mexico. The level of seriousness of these warnings ranges from “Do Not Travel” to “Reconsider Travel” to “Exercise Increased Caution.”

Only two states —Yucatan and Campeche— have the lowest classification, “Exercise Normal Precautions.”

Due to concerns about crime and kidnappings, many of Mexico’s most popular tourist destinations are currently under travel warnings.

Jalisco and Baja California, for example, are both places to “Reconsider Travel.” But Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, two extremely popular vacation spots, are located in those states.

Americans are actually making record-breaking travel reservations to these places as opposed to rethinking their travel plans.

In a similar vein, the U.S. State Department advises tourists to “Exercise Increased Caution” when visiting Quintana Roo, the state that is home to well-known beach resorts such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum.

Hotels in Cancun are still full despite warnings to tourists. Some hotels are even having trouble filling vacancies fast enough to keep up with the rapidly increasing demand.
