Is there a Mexico travel advisory right now?

As spring break approaches, the United States has issued several travel advisories asking travelers to exercise caution when planning their next trip.

Popular locations for spring break such as Mexico, Jamaica, or the Bahamas are under travel advisories from the U.S. government.

While there is no overarching travel advisory for Mexico itself, the State Department has various levels of travel advisories for the different states of Mexico.

Most states fall under level two, asking folks to exercise increased caution. Two Mexican states, Campeche and Yucatan, are level one, meaning travelers can exercise normal caution.

But the department warns that violent crime like homicide, kidnapping, carjacking and robbery is “widespread and common in Mexico,” and that the U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to its citizens in many parts of Mexico.

Those traveling to Mexico should:

  • Keep traveling companions and family back home informed of your travel plans, and share your GPS location. When taking a taxi, send a photo of the taxi number and/or license plate and to a friend.
  • Use toll roads when possible and avoid driving alone or at night.
  • Exercise increased caution when visiting local bars, nightclubs, and casinos.
  • Do not display signs of wealth, such as wearing expensive watches or jewelry.
  • Be extra vigilant when visiting banks or ATMs.
  • Enroll in the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to be located in an emergency.
