For those who enjoy heading south of the border for vacations, the U.S. Department of State has updated travel warnings for Mexican states where tourists are more vulnerable to crime.
Ahead of Memorial Day weekend, the Mexican state of Tamaulipas – which borders south Texas – is on the list of Do Not Travel states because of high crime and possible kidnapping.
The first quarter of 2019 set a new record for homicides in Mexico, where violent crime has claimed more than 250,000 lives since 2006, according to the Associated press.
The US State Department cautioned people on where not to go and also offered tips on how to avoid becoming a victim.
The Mexico Travel Advisory is divided into four levels of caution from the least dangerous – the “exercise normal precautions” list, to the most dangerous – the “do not travel” list.
