When in a foreign country there is always the need to be aware of your surroundings. Going off on your own has always had risks. Jeri has posted a reminder on the facebook page..Olivia as well as Club Med do work with reputable companies and joining an outing that they organize is always recommended. There have always been cartel issues inMexico, so the latest news is not new, the cartel have not been targetting tourists ..we have had this confirmed by an insurance adjuster who works in Cancun. So best to just check with Olivia and Club Med as to what options they have to offer and enjoy.
