Any tho'ts on traveling thru Mexico now with all the craziness with the U.S.? Traveling with US passport sounds troubling. Would fly but taking very large, old dog back with us. Leaving him not an option. Like leaving family behind. Also wondering if maybe booking passage on a freighter might be an option.

United States Consulate General Merida

Security Message for U.S. Citizens:

Reports of Gunfire Exchanges in Cancun

January 17, 2017



The U.S. Consulate General Merida informs U.S. citizens of gunfire exchanges in various locations in downtown Cancun January 17, 2017. Local authorities activated a “Code Red” alert and urged residents to shelter in place. The U.S. Consulate urges all U.S. citizens to follow local authorities’ warnings and directives and consult with their hotels before leaving the premises.



Currently no reports of shootings have happened in the Cancun Hotel Zone. However, there are reports that access to the Hotel Zone may be controlled by authorities as a security precaution.


A friend who lives in Mexico sent me this when I mentioned I was thinking of the fly-to-Cancun-bus-to-Corozal method of getting to Belize this time. She was concerned, especially about being on the highway. Around the same time, there was a nightclub shooting in Playa Del Carmen.

None of this seems particularly tied to the nonsense in Washington these days, but my friend, who runs a social-service NGO in Mexico, is seeing an expansion of the organized crime problem into areas that were formerly free of it. That's probably worth being concerned about.

We just made the trip and didn't have any problems. I wouldn't worry to much. We will be driving back on April 1st if anyone wants to follow us back.
