After Hurricane Otis escalated into a Category 5 storm last night (24 October), concerns over the safety of travel to Mexico and the risk of further natural disasters have risen.

Hurricane conditions made a powerful landfall in Acapulco on Mexico’s Pacific coastline on Wednesday morning and sustained 165-mph winds are expected to sweep the south coast between San Jose del Progreso and San Jeronimo de Juarez on 25 October.

The hurricane could become the most powerful storm ever to hit Acapulco, with the potential to affect at least one million people.

Amid Mexico’s June to November hurricane season, Category 4 Hurricane Lidia has already barrelled the states of Jalisco and Nayarit on 10 October, and Category 1 Hurricane Norma swept Los Cabos on the Baja California Peninsula on 21 October.

Even if hurricane warnings are lifted, a risk of landslides, mudslides, and flash flooding remains a threat to holidaymakers with trips booked to the ocean-flanked country.

Here’s the latest travel advice for Mexico, plus all the key questions and answers.
