Exercise a high degree of caution in Mexico because of high levels of violent crime and drug-related violence. Pay close attention to your personal security at all times. Monitor the media and other sources about possible new security risks.
Reconsider your need to travel to the State of Guerrero, except for the tourist areas of the cities of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and Taxco, and the toll road to Taxco, due to the very high levels of violent crime and volatile security situation. This includes Acapulco. See Safety and security
Reconsider your need to travel to the State of Michoacán, except the cities of Morelia and Lázaro Cardenas, and the Monarch butterfly reserves, due to organised crime and the volatile security situation in the state. See Safety and security
Reconsider your need to travel to the State of Tamaulipas due to the high levels of crime, including kidnapping and extortion. See Safety and security
Reconsider your need to travel to the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains in southern Chihuahua State, north-eastern Sinaloa State, north-western Durango State and south eastern Sonora State, except for the Chihuahua-Pacific Railway, due to very high levels of violent crime and lawlessness. See Safety and security
Homicide and other crime rates in the states of Baja California Sur and Quintana Roo have risen sharply in recent years. This includes areas frequented by tourists. See Safety and security
Be alert to the risk of violent crime and civil unrest when travelling by road in rural areas. See Safety and security and Local travel
Petty crime is common. Thieves target tourists at airports, bus terminals and on the metro in Mexico City. Some criminals pose as police officers. Avoid displaying valuables. Be aware of your surroundings. Avoid travelling or walking alone at night, where possible. See Safety and security
Travellers can become victims of violence directed against others. Avoid large public gatherings, protests and demonstrations as they could turn violent. See Safety and security
Violent crimes often related to the drug trade - including murder, kidnapping and carjacking - are widespread. Be vigilant, particularly in areas most affected by drug-related violence. See Safety and security
Mexico experiences earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic activity, hurricanes and associated landslides, mudslides and flooding. Be prepared for a natural disaster, monitor local media reports and follow the instructions of local emergency officials. See Natural disasters

Of course you didn't see them. The kidnapped were, der, kidnapped. The poor were trafficked.

what a joke. Cancun is way more dangerous than Mexico City. I was in CDMX last fall and it's stunning. So much to do, so much to see, I'll never go back to Cancun.

Just be vigilant. It's the same advice that I'd give if you were going to Philadelphia, Chicago or New York and many parts of SE Asia, all heavily touristed. Do not rent a car and just drive around aimlessly. Only take tolled and patrolled freeways and do not venture deep into the countryside because Mexico definitely is not the same as Italy. Don't get black out drunk and stumble around. Don't leave the tourist areas to "explore" on your own.

I was just in a state and city marked as "avoid for all non-essential travel" and it was fine. The Mexican people are friendly and many parts of the country are beautiful. Almost all of the violence is targeted and carried out by organized crime. And the most part, resorts and the most heavily touristed parts are left alone.

Stay in a resort with security. You will be safe. Although, most resorts in Cancun are more like hotels vs properly gated resorts in Tulum etc.

Quite a few of the rape cases were blamed on resort security.
