According to the Sun, the attack was unfolded when a jet ski assailant reportedly fired a weapon at a target on the beach called Playa Tortugas. After the attack, the hitman escaped on the water.

Some drug cartels operate with attacks deployed. Cancun is a favorable retail drug market. AP reports that in the first four months of 2021, there were approximately 200 killings in the state associated with cartel violence.

Violence has declined in the state since its peak in 2018 and 2019. There were 209 killings in the first four months of 2021, compared to 266 in the same period of 2020.

  7. Was waiting for BorderlandBeat to post this. I was at Playa Tortugas when this shooting took place yesterday. My friend and I got off the Ultramar ferry exactly at 2pm and were walking to the parking lot to grab a taxi when shots rang out. I grabbed her hand, we ducked and took cover.

    When the shooting stopped a few secs later, about 20ft from me in front of a souvenir shop, lay two guys dead- one was laying next to a plastic chair/table wearing white, the other was wearing blue, slumped over with a bullet in his head.

    My taxi driver saw the shooting and said the shooters ran off towards the beach and hopped on jet skis.

    An African American tourist was also wounded, thank God she survived. Not sure if bullet entered her arm or grazed it.

    There were beach police present during the shooting, but they didn't do anything. Police vehicles showed up about 7-8 mins later and taped off the scene, but tons of ppl were standing right in front of the dead bodies.

    What's sad is that other tour salesmen and workers were very nonchalant about it; I'm sure they're numb to such violence now.

    Also, this was the 3rd shooting at Playa Tortugas in the past 2 months (that's reported).

    I'm on Borderlandbeat religiously since I live in Mexico; so I see all these gruesome pics/vids here, but it's crazy to actually experience such an incident and to see two dead bodies just several feet away.

    Mexico is such a beautiful country with rich culture, sad to see this happen :(

    1. It's very unfortunate you had to witness this. Violence is present every where in the world. Don't believe me, walk down Hollywood Blvd, go to Miami or New York. A few years back 55 innocent people were shot while attending a country music concert in Las Vegas.

  13. Cancun tells Acapulco. Hold my beer. Watch this! Anyway still safer than Manhattan where this is becoming a daily occurrence and aside from shootings we have face slashers on the subway in nice areas of NY if there’s a such thing. I actually feel safer in Acapulco
