Cozumel Makes List of Safest 2013 Mexico Travel Destinations
Cozumel isn’t just one of the safest travel destinations in Mexico. Death rates show that Cozumel is actually one of the safest travel destinations in the world, according to Examiner contributor Jack Dennis.
Dennis explains that U.S. Mexico travel advisories are primarily concerned with border towns and urban regions.
When it comes to safety, geography plays to Cozumel’s advantage. The only way on or off the island is by taking a ferry from or to Playa del Carmen. One rental community on the island, Costa del Sol, even offers a 24-hour gated security service.
Cozumel is actually safer than any US city, per capita and overall.
Violent crime is not common in Cozumel. This is due to a variety of factors, including Cozumel’s geographic isolation, legitimate and friendly local government, and comparatively (than elsewhere in Mexico) lower poverty rate.
So, if you’re thinking about a tropical getaway to Mexico this year, Cozumel is a safe choice. You can even take advantage of rentals with amenities that make you feel right at home – including washer and dryer, central air conditioning, central filtered water and full kitchens.Last updated: June 8, 2013 at 21:12 pm
