Maybe it's the heavy police presence. Perhaps it's the states' geography. Or, there might be some truth to the persistent rumour that the 'narcos' have their families here and an understanding not to go after one another here.
Whatever the reason, Yucatan is the safest state in violence-riddled Mexico, according to the Consejo Nacional de Seguridad Publica (National Council on Public Safety).
The CNSP goes on to say that the level of insecurity is so low that it is on the same level as cities in Holland, Switzerland or Chile.
Behind Yucatan are Campeche, Veracruz, Zacatecas and Tlaxcala.
If true, I can put up with those bothersome 'retenes' on Yucatans' highways and Meridas' streets.
