1. Is safe to visit Cancun in 2018?
Naturally, everyone wonders, is Cancun safe right now?
If you take the same precautions as you would traveling anywhere, (including metropolitan cities in the US) Cancun is 100% safe for you and your family.
In fact, the official US Travel Advisory page says the following about Cancun:
Need further proof?
Take a look at what SafeAround, which “assesses risk level worldwide”, says about Cancun.
So you see, it’s pretty clear Cancun is a safe city for American travelers.
2. Is Cancun inexpensive in 2018?
What’s the number one reason people love coming to Cancun? American dollars have a lot of value in Mexico.
In 2014 one American dollar was worth around 12 Mexican pesos. Even back then, that was considered a great deal for Americans.
Today in early 2018?
One American dollar equals almost 19 Mexican pesos. That’s a 50% appreciation!
If traveling to Mexico was a great deal for Americans in 2014, then traveling to Cancun in 2018 is an absolute STEAL for Americans.
It’s simple math. You can vacation in USA and do very little before your budget is exhausted. Or…
You can vacation in Cancun in 2018 and feel rich on that same budget. It’s your choice. =)
Do NOT exchange your American dollars for Mexican pesos at the airport. You’ll get a terrible exchange rate. Wait till you get to the Hotel Zone. In fact, anywhere other than the airport is better.
