I personally have never ridden in a collectivo, and have no plans to at this point. So, I am not worried about being robbed in a collectivo.

You got a point. Easy pickings. The collectivo pulls over for anyone waving on the road.

personally use them a lot to get to places like Xcecel,Xpu Ha etc.You can find it at Riviera Maya News.Bloody scary for those of us who don't have cars but like to go to some of the out of the way places.

I know some tourists se collectivos, but aren’t the majority of riders local workers? Seems like slim pickings unless the thief noted more tourists or expats than locals on that collectivo. Probably more expats using them than I thought about...
