'Do Not Travel' Advisory Issued for Parts of Mexico

'Do Not Travel' Advisory Issued for Parts of Mexico

The Mexico Tourism Board (MTB) called the U.S. State Department's new travel advisory system an upgrade over its previous one, but said there is room for improvement.

As a country, Mexico has a level-2 rating, which urges American travelers to "exercise increased caution", however half of the 31 Mexican states have a level 3 or 4 warning.

The advisory tells Americans "do not travel" to the five Mexican coastal states of Sinaloa, Colima, Michoac√°n, Guerrero, and Tamaulipas.

The country as a whole had a "level 2" rating, which meant USA tourists or travelers should "exercise increased caution".

Tesco enjoys a record Christmas as food sales boost performance
Tesco's update is the latest from the so called Big Four supermarkets, which also includes Sainsbury's, Asda and Morrisons . Food sales rose 3.6% on a total basis to £1.666bn, but like-for-like food sales were down 0.4%.

Days after Mexico logged its risky time in history, the United States asked its citizens to not tour five intensity filled Mexican states, putting them in the very risk class as war-torn Somalia, Afghanistan, and Syria.

In a statement, Mexico's Tourism Ministry noted that more than 28 of its most popular tourism destinations for worldwide travelers have no restrictions.

This is an improvement for Quintana Roo, as the State Department last summer issued a travel warning for the state due to "turf battles between criminal groups that have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by US citizens".

The advisory adds that "there are no USA government restrictions in tourist areas in Baja California, which includes: Ensenada, Rosarito and Tijuana".

US personnel had previously been allowed to fly to Ixtapa, the last place in Guerrero where they had been allowed to go.

However, the rate of homicide in Colima has seen a serious increase in recent years rising to Mexico's most unsafe states with 83.3 murders per 100,000 inhabitants last year due to the expansion of drug organizations such as the Jalisco Nueva Generacion Cartel.

The State Department already recommends that travelers use "increased caution" when in Mexico because of widespread crime, such as kidnapping, homicide, carjacking and robbery, USA Today reported. Personal travel by land and to the resort city of Acapulco had already been prohibited.

The state with second-highest homicide rate - 61.6 per 100,000 - was Baja California Sur, home to the twin resorts of Los Cabos.
