I've seen a lot lately on the Facebook page of the police about crime, violence, etc. Does anyone know anything more on this?

There is always crime.  That isn't probably the police's page on FB but rather a page covering the police.  I wouldn't get excited.  Cozumel is a fair sized city after all; there will be thing going on.

I'm with Mr. Police Chief Man. I know of a Facebook page that includes all sorts of reports, including people's denouncing their neighbors for loud parties, but it isn't at all official nor always even very accurate. Note that by far the most common content there that has to do with actual danger is about scooter crashes, followed closely by car crashes. Truck crashes come in third. As long as you stay off of scooters, it's pretty safe.

 

In the US, we live in a tiny town. No gas station. No stoplights. To us, Cozumel is The Big City, but we don't feel at all unsafe there. I probably wouldn't walk around at 2 AM while drunk wearing a necklace made of iPhones while complaining loudly that the wad of cash in my pocket is big enough to cause discomfort, but as long as one takes the same reasonable, prudent precautions one would use in a US city of similar size I don't think it's worrisome at all.

Well said. In fact, I would say it is likely safer.
