As part of ongoing efforts to increase traveler safety, Tulum, one of the key tourist destinations in the Mexican Caribbean, has seen a decrease in crime rates.

As authorities continue to take steps to stop organized crime, new numbers released this week show a decline in crime rates.

Diego Trejo, the municipal president of Tulum, noted that the resort city’s homicide rate has significantly decreased, with just three killings this month compared to as many as 15 in prior months.

And with summer rapidly approaching, Tulum will double up its efforts to safeguard visitors. Authorities in the tropical locale have frequently sent troops to police beaches, national parks, and Tulum’s renowned archaeological site.

If visitors follow important safety advice, Tulum is typically a highly safe vacation spot. The well-guarded all-inclusive resorts in Tulum are the safest locations, while the downtown center serves as a gathering spot for expat groups.

The U.S. Department of State has issued a level 2 Travel Advisory, the second-lowest warning level, for the Mexican Caribbean state of Quintana Roo. It is advisable that visitors stay close to their all-inclusive resort and refrain from going around alone at night.
