  1. During the day in the tourist shopping area?? S**t man

  2. Hijos de puta! En Isla mujeres??? Para que quemen vivos a todos los imbeciles que estan protagonisando estos crimenes!

  3. That's a very laid back little tiny place with practically no crime. It's obvious these so called cartels are really run by a bunch of idiotic morons. They will destroy the entire economy. At least they apprehended them. Mexico needs to take a good look in the mirror and make some decisions....time to bring in kill forces and outsourced intel gathering.

  4. Those weapons in the suitcase, are straight up only for killing people. Gangster af

  5. Those weapons look funny.
    The shotgun looks very cheap but modified, but that sub machine gun looks like the world’s worst cared for Uzi.
    I’d think cartel hitmen would have better care of their tools of the trade.

  6. I went there 30 years ago when it was heaven, sad its turned into a cesspool. The whole Yucatan penisula

    1. They saw Holbox is the closest thing to Isla 30 years ago. I have yet to go.

  7. Beautiful little community. Sad to see the violence is now corrupting there as well. Mexico has so much to offer and its all dwarfed by news of cartel street urchins killing each other or innocent people.
