Chances of getting murdered in Cancun as a white guy?

I’ll be going to Cancun for ~10ish days to meet up with a 9/10 girl there. Im planning to rent a house with Airbnb near the beach in the range of $50-100 per night.

Does anyone here have any experience with Cancun and can tell me how likely I am to be stabbed to death in the street for being there as an obviously American guy? Should I try to dress poor so I don’t look like an easy target for some cartel dudes?

      Bro I’m not staying at a resort/hotel I’m gonna be in a rented Airbnb house which is why I’m worried. Also she lives in Cancun which is why we’re going there, I think since she’s a local she’ll know where to go and where not to go but idk

        ok? the point still stands. you aren't going to get raided by the cartel. don't go to bars or clubbing past 10pm in non touristy areas

    99% of the violence there is drug dealers fighting over territory and they're smart enough not to fuck with tourists which is their customer base. It's safer than most american cities

        I don't doubt she exists

        What I'm saying is, if a really hot woman is telling you to come visit her, have you asked yourself why? How do you know it's not a set up for a scam?

          Yeah I had considered that but after the amount of time and effort that has gone into it I would honestly just be impressed at that point

          It's literally an island specifically designed to segregate tourists from all the problems that are found in the rest of Mexico. You'll be fine as long as you don't wander around the mainland.

          Just beware of common kidnapping situations if you leave the resort area which often happen when people leave a building, a restaurant, take a taxi or drive into a dangerous area or yes get lured by a woman.

          [...]
          I've stayed in 200 peso a night hotels in Mexico that felt perfectly safe.

          Now you guys have me a little paranoid about the whole “getting lured by a woman” scam. What do those scams usually look like? I’m 99% sure this isn’t one of those situations but it wouldn’t hurt to compare it to those and make sure

          I know she’s mentioned she wants to show me local places that she looks like that aren’t part of the tourist spots but when I looked up the places she mentioned they all seemed nice and a little touristy

            In Mexico a common occurrence is an event called "secuestro express" i.e. express kidnapping. You are lured or forced into a car where criminals drive you to an atm and force you to withdraw money at gunpoint, usually to the maximum amount you can withdraw, then let you go.

            This is in comparison to more traditional forms of kidnapping where you are held until your family sends them money.

            Ok since this is annoying me I’m going to give the whole story.
            >meet qt girl in LA
            >she’s into me but we can’t date because I already have gf
            >stay in contact periodically over course of a few months
            >she moves back to Cancun with her family
            >I break up with gf due to unrelated reasons
            >we start talking more, FaceTiming few times a week
            >she asks if I would ever want to come visit her
            >I say yes
            Does that honestly sound like a scam to the average person? Maybe I’ve got my head too far up my own ass to see it but it seems like a pretty non-scammy scenario. And she’s also not a 9/10 that was an exaggeration, she’s cute but more like average girl cute not model tier

            Honestly she is probably not going to rob you if you met her in the states. It's unlikely she would try to rob you compared to someone you only have talked to online. She could just want green card marriage but maybe she's cool and just wants you to meet her family/show you around.

            If she lives in Cancun its probably somewhere on the mainland which is more dangerous than the resorts (which have almost zero crime) and not frequented by tourists but is still one of the better parts of Mexico.

            I would just take the usual precautions, if she wants you to get into a car with a bunch of her male friends, that's sus. Try to scope out the area before leaving a building or getting out of a car. Maybe hang out in a public place for a day before agreeing to go meet her family. Avoid going down desolated streets and stay in more traveled areas. Try to know where you are at all times by using your cell phone, make sure you have data for Mexico. This is still probably being more paranoid than necessary.

              Thanks for the actual reasonable response dude. I will definitely take those precautions and make sure I’m not going anywhere crazy unsafe or with anyone I don’t already know

      Kek I’m not poor I’m just really cheap. I could afford the resort but why pay $300/night when you don’t have to?

    when someone googles you do they know your job, your income, your poperty or credit score?

    Never slum it when you think the destination is unsafe. $50/night, oh hell no. The neighborhood will borderline lower income. Have a decent hotel a couple of nights, one with security, and their own drivers. Do not take an uber or taxi from the airport, but your scheduled driver sent from the hotel. After that, guage your safety feelings. You don't know this girl, or this BnB or this town yet. They have a couple of murders every. single. day. and target tourists, not just rivals. They stop the bus to Tulum to rob them. Will you have your own car and driver?

      Seems a little over dramatic tbh. There are apartments/houses for rent inside the “hotel zone” with security guards for like $90 a night. So basically you’re in the resort area without having to pay the resort prices (and without some of the resort benefits obviously)

    I got robbed by a chud hooker in Cancun. It’s my own fault but Cancun has some rough 3rs worldly areas. Much prefer Playa del Carmen.

            She's underage? Too poor to live on her own? Unemployed?

            Again, she's going to pretend you are bilingual and can pass as a Mexican and will be just fine slumming it where the locals hang. There will be grocery store trips and taxis to and from your "house" where anyone and their brother has a key?
            None of us know if you have street smarts or mexico level street smarts.

    10000% you will be murdered dont gho to cancun.
    its not a highly popular and safe tourist spot, its actually incredibly dangerous!
    Do a safer first trip to somewhere like Mali and come back to cancun when you have experience.

    I read the whole thread and think you’ll be fine.

    The main factors which will determine how this goes will be:
    1 how much money you can actually spend on this trip without going broke.
    2 your ability to read body language and situations ( intuition / street smarts)
    3 your ability to speak Spanish.

    I’ve head that the cartels generally stay away from tourist areas because the other industries are so profitable there and they pay them to stay away or they have businesses there themselves. I’ve heard the Yucatán is pretty safe but keep your wits about you and don’t get too drunk in places it would put you in a position of obvious vulnerability, because remember, above all, criminals are opportunists.

    On that note, do you have the appearance of an easy sucker?

    Mostly likely you’ll have a great unforgettable time.
    If you run into trouble, it would probably be getting ripped off, or less likely, being robbed.

    I would be shocked if you got actually kidnapped, assaulted, or murdered.

    But then again, a lot of this depends on you.

    You can always find trouble if you go looking for it
