Mexico's deadly narco violence creeps into tourism areas

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Mexico's deadly drug-related violence surged to a new record in June, with 2,566 homicides that month alone.

The nation’s most popular tourist areas have largely avoided that bloodshed. But that trend appears to be reversing.

In Quintana Roo, a state in he resort areas of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, the 134 homicides registered so far this year are nearly equal to the 165 seen all last year, according to government crime data.
