This does help, thank you!
I was in Cancun last August. We were two girls and we felt pretty safe. Always use common sense just like you would anywhere else. Only once, a car full of guys stopped by and asked us if we needed a ride, of course we said no. We were staying at the Riu Palace las Americas (which is two blocks away from all the nightlife) and we walked to and back from the clubs every night without having any issues. We sometimes even took public transit to get to tours and we felt safe too. The biggest danger you might encounter is getting swindled by a bus driver if you pay with dollars and are not very comfortable with the exchange rate, because they give you change back in pesos. Make sure you tell your guests that if they get drunk to not stir any trouble. Maybe that's when you can find more issues. When my FI went one his friends got kicked out of the hotel, they called the police and they detained him. It ended up being a huge problem because my FI and his other friends had to bail the one friend out and the police wanted bribes, etc. Long story short, make sure people don't get in trouble.
Bad things can happen, just like they could whether you're in Mexico, Europe or at home, but as long as you're aware of your surroundings you'll be ok. Long reply, but I hope it helps.
