US orders ‘do not travel’ warning for five Mexican states

Published on : Friday, January 12, 2018

Mexico City aUnder a revamped U.S. State Department system, there are now five states which have the sternest “do not travel” advisories, probably putting them on the same level as the travel as countries such as Syria, Yemen and Somalia.

 

 

 

The five states are Tamaulipas on the U.S. border and Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero on the Pacific coast. These five states are indentified as the hotspots of drug peddling activities by either hosting trafficking routes or through extensive drug crop cultivation.

 

 

 

The new warnings are sterner than the previous ones as the State Department has issued a level 4 warning which is the highest level of potential danger. As a whole, there is a level 2 rating on Mexico which means that Americans should “exercise increased caution” because of concerns about crime. In the new rule, additionally 11 Mexican states got a level 3 warning which tells people to “reconsider travel”.

 

 

 

Those states where Americans are urged to reconsider travel include the State of Mexico — Mexico’s most populous state, which includes most suburbs of Mexico City — and Jalisco, home to the city of Guadalajara, the Puerto Vallarta resorts and the lakeside expat community of Chapala and Ajijic. However, there are no restrictions on U.S. government employees for stays in the five cities Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Chapala, and Ajijic,

 

 

 

According to some travel experts, the most challenging part in the tourism sector is that there are crime events occurring at areas where they didn’t happen before such as Cancun, La Paz and Los Cabos.
