The U.S. Department of State recently updated their travel warning against certain popular areas in Mexico including Tijuana, Rosarito, Mexicali, Durango, Cabo San Lucas and many others.
“U.S. citizens have been the victims of violent crimes, including homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery in various Mexican states.”
The warning states that most of these criminal actions take place on isolated roads or at night, but have also harmed people during the daytime and in public places.
Fact: eight out of the ten most dangerous cities in North America are located in Mexico.
According to Fox News, this travel warning is extremely important right now as some of the dangerous areas are popular destinations for college students and families to travel during spring break (end of March).
If you or someone you know is traveling to Mexico in the near future, please take extra precautions when wandering through town areas and return to the resort/hotel before night time.
