On July 16, 2018, the United States Department of State issued an update for its travel advisory to Mexico by deeming all major tourism destinations safe.
The Mexico Tourism Board revealed that more than 40 of the country’s major international tourist destinations have no travel restrictions and exist in states where there are no special travel advisories for tourists.
Mexican officials cite the updated travel advisory to prove the vast majority of crimes in the country do not occur in areas frequented by international tourists. Even some of the areas with remaining warnings have resort areas free of the travel restrictions, including Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta.
In total, Mexico is the sixth-most visited country in the world, registering 39.3 million international visitors in 2017. The tourism industry in the country has also experienced a growth rate above industry-average levels for the last five years, thanks in part to the government’s focus on the safety of tourists.
Mexico’s tourism industry and the Mexico Tourism Board continue to work together to make the country safe for travelers.
