As of this year, 2023, there have been 50 reported attacks on Uber drivers in Cancun, not including those who are afraid to report, said Agueda Esperilla Soto, spokesperson for Uber drivers in Cancun.

These incidents add to the 500 complaints filed with the General Prosecutor’s Office of the State of Quintana Roo by December 2022, since Uber’s return to the region four years ago, she reported.

According to local media, there is a conflict between taxi drivers and Uber drivers in Cancun, Mexico. 

Taxi drivers claim that Uber is operating illegally and they have been attacking and intimidating Uber drivers and their passengers, especially tourists. 

Some of the incidents have been recorded and shared on social media, causing outrage and calls for a taxi boycott

The violence escalated after a federal court ruled that Uber can operate in the state without a public transport license, which taxi drivers are required to have.
