Places I should avoid and should I venture out of the tourist areas. My wife talked me into going to Market 28 for souveniers. The bus dropped us off about 6 blocks from there. We had to walk through some run down areas to get there. We walked past a group of policemen in riot gear and machine guns having breakfast at a cantina. No one hasseled us but we did have an uneasy feeling being there. Although it was morning not nighttime.
Turns out they had the same souveniers at the same price that I could have gotten at Plaza Caracol right across from our hotel at the Riu. Just use good judgement as u would at home. Don't put yourself in a position where someone can take advantage of u. If u get that uncomfortable or uneasy feeling u probably shouldn't be where u are.
Stick to the "touristy" areas if ur unsure. I wouln't stress to much about it, ur on vacation to have a great time!! KGB1: The police always dress in riot gear and machine guns as their normal uniform even some traffic stop cops. It doesn't mean there's something bad happening It annoys me because it makes it look like we're in a war zone and scares off the tourists.
LoritaJean: U are right, I have seen them dressed like that at the airport and traffic stops on the way to Tulum. I think it was just the combination of the large group of them and the area that we were walking through that made us a little uneasy. I probably should have felt safer seeing them there. As I said, no one hasseled us but I would probably put Market 28 on my list of places not to revisit, as they have the same stuff in the hotel zone.
KGB1: That's for sure! Same products are available in the HZ for the same prices, but without the hassle of vendors screaming at you. I'm not a fan of Market 28, either. I haven't Been back since this area supposedly got really bad in recent years and do not plan to go back anytime soon. That being said, I never felt unsafe in Cancun during my 4 trips from I agree with others that you should avoid walking along the beach or in town at late night Been to the clubs in Cancun at night and took the bus back to the resort This seemed relatively safe I love Cancun just use common sense and you'll be ok I recently traveled to Punta Cana in Dominican and we left the resort once during the day and I felt very unsafe Cancun seems so much safer Perhaps you are a little bit naive.
