Americans urged to ‘avoid’ visiting, exercise caution

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and State Department are urging Americans to “avoid travel to Mexico” due to “very high levels of COVID,” but that’s not the only warning for travelers who may be looking ahead to Spring Break.

Last week, US consular authorities in Mexico reminded Americans to be careful when traveling to several top vacation spots after two Canadians were killed at a luxury hotel in Playa Del Carmen.

“In light of recent security incidents and criminal activity in popular tourist destinations including Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, and Tulum, US citizens are reminded to exercise increased caution when traveling to the state of Quintana Roo,” The US Consulate General Merida wrote in a travel alert posted days after the Jan. 21 shooting. “Criminal activity and violence may occur throughout the state, including areas frequented by US citizen visitors.”
