Shoot out in the centre of Cancun ( video)

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from an El Debate article

Subject Matter: Shoot out in Cancun tourist district
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required


A fierce shootout was registered in the commercial centre of Culiacan on Avenue Tulum, Coba and Bonampak up to the Plaza del Toros, in the Premier block of the city of Cancun, in which a confrontation between elements of the Army and State Police chased a group of sicarios.

In the first version of events, the confrontation between the armed groups happened at a place close to the bus station and the shootout continued into the restaurant zone and bars that ended at the plaza del toros.

The government of Quintana Roo has not confirmed the number of injured after the gun battle, but it is known that there are four people with gunshot injuries and one death.





Parts of the city centre are now closed, with police mobilized which has generated a climate of tension in the area. There were four detainees, all of whom were injured and were hospitalized, while others were detained by the Ministerial authority.

According to the residents testimony, gun shots were heard outside a shopping centre located on Tulum Avenue, at the top of Glorieta de las Estrellas and Lasa Caracoles, popularly known as Glorieta del Ceviche, in the centre of the city.

There were also detonations in the kiwi market, a few meters from the Glorieta and in front of the Municipal palace, very close to the same area.


The shooting spread to Nader Avenue, parallel to Tulum Avenue, where it is presumed that some of those implicated were injured.

The government of Quintana Roo issued a brief message: " The situation in Cancun is under control, after the arrest of a group of people.


Officially it was reported that it was the execution of a ministerial action, that provoked the chase and subsequent gun battle.

Some inhabitants reports gunfire at Plaza Las Avenidas, located in the Xcaret and Coba Avenues.

    6. 9:59 . Yes you are right but the smart people go where the odds are minimal to be a victim . Any person that has 2 brain cells to rub together understands the difference between a dangerous place and a safe place . Everybody that travels down that dangerous HI way in whatever part of mexico don't become victims . Like I always say , it don't happen until it happens and then its to late .

    9. Yep, when I was there a few years ago, it was Zeta turf, and the Zetas kept it calm and safe. Their security was invisible, but it was in place and tourists were totally safe. I wonder what the Zetas now do to these dumbfucks for screwing up their tourist income source?

    11. My wife nd I were in Cancun during this shoot out. We were in the hotel zone. I have to say that it was a bit scary since we had planned to go to the casino that night which was right close to the events happening, but changed our minds at the last minute. I also have to say seeing the police presents on the beach right after gave us a sense of security. There are mafia crimes happening all over the states and much worse than what went on down there that night. We're going back this year for 3 months. I'm not saying it's for everyone, but I'm not going to hide away every time something like this happens. I lived in Germany for 4 years and terrorism there is much more real than Mexico. I fear many cities in USA more than I do Cancun.

  2. No, pos WOW!
    The poor tourists are running out of places to have fun, thank GOD!
    After all the only ones that benefit from the "industry" are the well to do, the well connected and the so called government.

    1. A lot of people earn their living in those places and they are the ones who really suffer when the tourists are gone.

    2. Don't average mexicans work at these hotels? Or is it just government people making money on the side... lose tourist lose wages. The town I live in make 100s of millions a year from tourist. Don't like it. But if it wasn't for their spending. Our town would be a shit hole!

    6. Tourism is only a small fraction of what money generates compared to its citizens in US who send money to Mexico.
      That money from the US is what sustains Mexicos economy. Imagine the impact if such unforeseen circumstance were to shut that down.
      Moreover, if anyone has been paying attention. Mexico has applied legal assistance for its undocumented citizens in the US. In other words trying to protect its economy not its citizens.
      Funny how the Mexican government can't protect citizens within. Rather protect those abroad.

      A visualization that's all. No racial intentions.

    4. 3:43 you just ain' seeing it, as the militarized poolice corporations and the military branches work mainly TO SUPPORT the private security forces enforcing the privatization of all the money making venues in mexico and other broke assed countries, parallel with their need to get their own pay as they see fit, you will surely see crime increases, and after a while reports of mass murders and mass graves and disappearances, matter of fact, epn has higher rates of murders and disappearances than FECAL, and epn is guilty of both.

  4. Cancun gradually evolving into the next Acapulco if it doesn't get under control? Business owners must be raising hell with politicos...all that lost revenue. Just takes a few incidents like this to get in the media that will cause tourists to travel elsewhere and dent the profits.

    1. The problem is that the politicos make their money from the cartels and many business owners cash comes from the cartels too.

    4. @5:23 am
      Businesses have taken a hit long time ago.
      Look at all those border like Laredo , Matamoros, Reynosa ect. Shops of all those tourists destinations were turned into ghost towns. Where revenue from tourists have become bleak. This is due to the violence and extortion from criminals.
      Citizens suffer not politicians.

  5. You're right Cancun is the laundering hub of mexico

    1. There is no evidence you even need to launder money in Mexico. The cartels earn and invest with impunity.

      Delete
    2. You hit on an important point here, drug money is invested into legal business to launder, on which tax is then paid into the Mexican treasury. So in some ways while drug money is considered evil, it does contribute to the Mexican GDP. Part of the problem in Quintana Roo is that while it was Zeta only turf at the height of their power they ar now fighting CdG and CJNG for control. CDs also have presence there.

  9. I was in Cancun back in spring break of 2007. I had a great time with the exception of 3 incidents. 1 was introuduced to a guy who had been deported but had grown up in Pacoima Ca. He was a cholo and we had been introduced to him by one of the bar employees after we told him we were from L.A. he started rubbing me the wrong way when he kept insisting we go hang out to his house and call some girlfriends of his. My friend, being somewhat Naive was up for it, but I didn't trust him. We ended up losing him and moving on. The 2nd incident was with a gringo, he kept messing with my buddy until I told him to chill out. The Gringo tried to get brave until I told him we could fight, I didn't care because I could speak Spanish and talk my way out of jail. I told him I'd put the blame on him and they would believe me over him because I was Mexican. Fortunately it worked and he left is alone. The last incident ironically occurred with a local and a police officer. A drunk local decided to take a piss on my leg as we were riding on the bus. When I realized what was happening, I swung the guy around and ended up choking him with both hands on the seat all the way in the back of the bus. The bus driver ended up stopping in front of the police. I explained to the police officedr what had happened and the officer touches the piss, smells it and confirms it was urine and decides to put us both on the paddy wagon. I argued my case until we settled on 50 bucks. The local got slapped around and taken in. Other then those 3 incidents, we had a blast.

    2. Your first incident was similar to mine. We we approached by a "bar guide" in the Zona Roja in Tijuana who promised us dope and some hot chicas. I smelled a setup but my stupid friend was all for it. I saved his life but got grief in return.

      Delete
    3. Sounds more like a bad occurrence after another.
      Wouldn't call that a blast.
      From attempted kidnap, to a rudely American and a bum on the bus.
      Would not recommend you give tourists attractions any time soon.

  15. once Cancun falls, it's over. I have been there s few times, the locals were always bitching about their tips and always had their hand out. Now it's worse plus the gangs are there. It's basically a failed state and there is no way back from that.

  21. This is how the Cristaleros work.
    They offer free product to new customers. After a week the product gains a price tag. This is from actually watching the process down here. Gente that have nothing cannot even afford padlock (candado). Cristaleros raid these homes and take everything even the light bulbs. Ninety percent of the victims of drugs remain unknown. It is eating my country from within.
