Is Chichen Itza safe ... Yes Chichen Itza is safe ...

No country on the planet is hundred percent safe for all travellers all the time. That being said, Chichen Itza is considered very safe for travels and vacations by the U.S. State Department.

Chichen Itza receives almost two million tourists a year, with an estimated of more than half of them being foreign visitors. This number is itself a great barometer of safety. The board of tourism in Chichen Itza Yucatan thrives on tough safety and security.

It is much more common to get robbed at the resort/hotel than anyone on the streets in Yucatan Mexico. Generally when the United States government talks, people listen, and according to the data, Cancun is safer than all of the United States of America and all its biggest and most popular cities. The U.S. State Department ranks the risk of traveling to Chichen Itza in the same category as any popular European travel destinations.

The Quintana Roo Tourism Board and the Yucatan Tourism Board are always very active in their acknowledgement of the actual situation in Chichen Itza, Cancun Playa del Carmen and Tulum. They want to make sur everything is transparent as possible for everyone visiting Cancun or Riviera Maya. The agency P.R. Newswire article continues to inform that Cancun and Playa Del Carmen Riviera Maya are some of the most welcoming, friendly and safest places to visit in Mexico.

Traveling to Cancun or Riviera Maya is no different than traveling elsewhere in the world, because at the end of the day we need to use common sense. Cancun is a booming tourist destination for world travellers and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Be confident that absolutely nothing will happen on your next vacation to any of the stunning all inclusive Cancun resorts, but it’s always comforting to know what to do in case of an emergency: contact the Canadian or  U.S. Embassy, Consulate General and Consular Agent.
