My son is planning a wedding in Cancun. All inclusive resort in the Mayan Riviera. Is it safe traveling from airport to the resort? What is best transportation?

I have lived in Cancun for the last 14 years and crime has increased 100 fold.
A very good friend of mine (Australian) was shot to death two weeks ago, one of my properties was burglarized this week, and armed men inside a white truck stopped traffic in front of my best friend yesterday. No, Csncun is not safe anymore. I live in a high end area, and it used to be paradise. Not any more. We actually live in fear now, but can't leave yet.
