The Yucatan Peninsula, still remains the safest part of the country, including Cancun, Cozumel and the Riviera Maya, Mexico´s main tourist destinations, according to a Canadian study.
“This report from the Canadian government is not to place Mexico on a national alert, it only defines potential risk areas for tourists and even encourage tourists to avoid them” declared governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge Angulo.
He stressed that this report adds to that released a couple of months ago by the Department of State of the United States, which placed the three states of the Peninsula, Quintana Roo, Campeche and Yucatan as the safest region in Mexico.
“This is important because the United States and Canada are the main markets for tourist in Quintana Roo”
He considers that, even though people is aware that these cities are safe, the government isn’t taking any chances, and that is why they developed a strategy to provide protection and security for the population and the tourists alike that find themselves visiting the region.
