State Department warns spring breakers of Mexico threat

State Department warns spring breakers of Mexico threat

An explosive device was found on a tourist ferry in Playa del Carmen last week. A State Department official is quoted as saying the alert's primary objective is to warn, "of specific safety and security concerns in a country, such as demonstrations, crime trends and weather events", according to the Washington Post.

The new warning narrows the threat to five neighborhoods of Playa del Carmen that USA government personnel are prohibited from visiting: Centro, Calica, Gonzalo Guerrero, Quintas del Carmen and Villas del Carmen.

The State Department abruptly closed the U.S. Consulate in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and is prohibiting all U.S. government employees from traveling to the popular resort town.

The personnel travel restrictions have been in place "until further notice", according to a spokesperson for the State Department.

The alert, issued Wednesday night, says US government employees have to cease traveling to the town "immediately" and "until further notice". Two weeks before that incident, an explosion on another ferry left 26 people hurt.

State prosecutors say the ferry incidents are under investigation.

"We recommend USA citizens planning travel to the area consider this information before making travel decisions". "We do not know why the USA government made a decision to emit this alert", officials said, according to the Associated Press. There are four levels of caution-exercise normal precautions, exercise increased caution, reconsider travel, and do not travel-and the red-alert stage four gets reviewed at least every six months. It warns that some areas are experiencing violent crime such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery.

The State Department has already advised travelers to avoid five states in Mexico due to crime. Alcapulco is located in Guerrero.
