"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
Cancun has been hurt by a troubling increase in violent crime.In March, 2018 criminals planted a bomb on a ferry in Cancun, injuring at least 24 people.In 2017 three tourists were killed while visiting a beach in Baja California Sur by gunmen with automatic weapons. Perhaps no city has been hit harder by violence than Acapulco.In January 2018 a Chilean tourist was killed in shoot-out in a beach-side bar.In March, 2018 another tourist was killed in a shooting at a public event near the Caleta beach in Acapulco.On a number of occasions in 2018 gunmen have targeted tourists arriving in Acapulco via bus and car.Mexico’s tourism industry still presents a strong upside, but is also being affected by serious security problems.
