Crime in Puerto Morelos?

Hi there,

I was wondering how things were looking in the Puerto Morelos area. I know that there has been an increase of murders in Cancun. If you were there recently, like the last month, I would appreciate your insights. We are going there this month, but staying at a VRBO. Thanks.

We returned a week or so ago. If there is elevated crime in the area, we didn't see it, or feel any vib. No sign what so ever in and around town. Laid back lifestyle. We of course take the usual precautions as we would at home. I'm way more on edge walking Seattle at night than PoMo.

Return, do you have a link to any news article(s) that describe the incident?

Hard to believe there would be nothing on line about a shots fired incedent at a resort in the area based on the media attention to the area. I can find nothing on line about this. If this happened it should be known to potential visitors but without any information I would be skeptical. I am not saying it did not happen, I have no idea. I just think the sourse of that info needs to be out before making it a concern.

I am here at Secrets Silversands. I did not witness the incident, but have heard from people who did. It is very strange, like nothing happened at all. I would not fault anyone here denying the event, based on evidence.

I will disregard the post until I see some credible report of it.

Dugfir- Google Yucatan Times. Read :Puerto Morelos residents. The recent shooting is not so far fetched. Come to your own conclusions. .

I did the search. There are some articles about "crime" (where isn't there?) but I cannot find anything related to a specific incident at the Secrets Silversands or any other resort. I remain skeptical...
