Playa Del Carmen, a Hotbed for Narco-Traffickers

Playa Del Carmen is a choice tourist destination for Belizeans and many other visitors who travel there for sun, beach, and cuisine.

News reports say the violence has to do with an ongoing turf war between drug lords operating to gain control of Playa.
