Safety and Security
Cancun is a coastal city in the popular vacation destination called The Mexican Caribbean or more officially known as the state of Quintana Roo. Located on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is a medium-sized city on a long, thin island connected to the mainland through bridges at its north and south ends.
Stay healthy and buy bottled water! Drink water frequently to avoid dehydration and heat stroke as the weather can be extreme at times. Do not drink the tap water unless the hotel has a water purification system.
Protect your skin! The sun’s UV rays are extremely strong in Cancun even on cloudy days and will burn any exposed skin on most persons from northern climates within a few minutes. Please use sunscreen.
Stay safe and be careful if you choose to swim in the ocean while visiting Cancun. The ocean currents can be strong. Look for colored flags that are planted on beaches and ask the hotel’s concierge or a lifeguard (if one is available). Black Flag = Highest Warning Level/Do not swim | Red Flag = Dangerous Conditions/swim with much caution | Yellow Flag = No immediate danger/swim with moderate caution | Green Flag = Water conditions are safe to swim
Only use ATMs located in a bank or your hotel while in Cancun or Mexico. Avoid ATM’s in pharmacies, gas stations or general stores as you may become a victim of identity theft.
Medical Care: Hotels generally have an on-site physician to assist in non-urgent medical needs. Listed below are staffed hospital facilities that treat urgent care situations.
