Mexican police are investigating the discovery of four deceased individuals near a beachside hotel in Cancun. The bodies were found adjacent to a hotel on Boulevard Kukulcán in the municipality of Benito Juárez, according to a statement from the Quintana Roo Attorney General’s office.
The Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancún All-Inclusive resort confirmed the incident occurred in the vicinity but clarified that the victims were not guests of the hotel. The resort assured that its guests and staff are safe within the hotel premises, and local authorities are handling the investigation. The safety of guests and staff remains a priority for the hotel.
So far, the identities of the deceased have not been disclosed. Quintana Roo Security Official José de la Peña Ruiz de Chávez stated that the victims were involved in drug-related activities. He dismissed the possibility that they were hotel employees or tourists.
The Quintana Roo Attorney General’s office has detained two suspects in connection with the incident, and the investigation continues. Authorities are working to shed light on the events and identify any additional individuals involved in the crime.
This incident follows a travel advisory issued by the U.S. Embassy in Mexico in March, urging U.S. citizens to exercise increased caution in popular spring break destinations such as Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, and Tulum, particularly after dark.
