Sex for money and prostitution is legal in Mexico and the sex workers in Cancun are not slow in coming forward. Even though street prostitution is technically illegal in Cancun, it’s still pretty rampant in the downtown parts of Centro, so if one tries to grab you in the street, the phrase “Gracias sabrosa, pero mis precios son demasiado caro para ti“ may help you get away and it means "Tasty Thanks, but my prices are too expensive for you". Note the prices are not cheap, but most sex workers are clean and professional. If you're on a budget and wanting to find relief, go to casas de las citas, the low-end brothels for the locals.
