Mike Sington, a guest at the Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun, tweeted, "I've never been so scared, literally shaking."
"I'm fine now, barricaded in my hotel room for the night, just trying to decompress," Sington said.
Well, what do you expect? Cancun is located in the lawless Mexican state of Quintana Roo, where cartels have been fiercely battling each other to control the drug trade to tourists.
The attorney general's office for Quintana Roo said cartels faced off on the beach in Bahía Petempich that left two dead:
The cartel shootout is the latest incident frequent by American tourists. About two hours south in Tulum, a resort town popular with celebrities, Instagram influencers, and millennials, has been descending into a chaotic hellhole this year as cartels wage war against each other for control. Last week, two tourists were killed in a shootout, and three others were injured."About 15 people arrived on the beach to assassinate two men who had showed up saying they were the new dealers in the area," the head prosecutor of Quintana Roo state, Oscar Montes de Oca, told the Radio Formula station.
