A popular vacation area on the Caribbean, Cancun has largely escaped the violence that has racked Acapulco, a faded tourist hot spot on the Pacific.

The country's drug trade is largely blamed for Mexico's crime problem.

Just last month, six Spanish women were raped by hooded gunmen who forced their way into the Acapulco beach house the women had rented.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has vowed to reduce the violence that soared after his predecessor, Felipe Calderon, launched an assault on drug cartels.

How bad is it? More than 70,000 people have been killed just from drug-related violence in Mexico since 2007, according to government estimates.
