Californian killed in Ixtapa

The article says there were 122 homicides is Zihuatanejo this year, Cancun and Play del Carmen were in the same range. I didn’t check the others, nor do I know the difference in population to get the rate per thousand.

I came to Playa partly because it was safer than the rest of the country, but things are getting out of control here too now. Cancun finished the year with 227 intentional homicides, Playa with 59. There were numerous shootings right on fifth avenue last year, even in the middle of the day. It's a huge rise compared to just a few years ago, only 21 in 2014 in Cancun for example.
