  • While Playa Del Carmen, Mexico is relatively free of the gang crimes seen in Northern and Central Mexico, the police are no-less vigilant.

    Here you see the local policia looking militant doing their evening rounds on the streets of Playa Del Carmen. They carry rifles and machine guns. They look mean. They do not smile.

    It is a challenging job and I am happy they are there protecting those who need it.
