The U.S. State Department has updated its travel warnings about Mexico. The updated warning replaces the one that was shared on December 8, 2016.
Some of the areas that have been affected by the warning include Baja California, Baja California Sur, Guerrero, Jalisco, and Quintana Roo. That covers many busy places such as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, etc.
The warning explained the current dangers.
“Gun battles between rival criminal organizations or with Mexican authorities have taken place on streets and in public places during broad daylight. The Mexican government dedicates substantial resources to protect visitors to major tourist destinations and has engaged in an extensive effort to counter criminal organizations that engage in narcotics trafficking and other unlawful activities throughout Mexico.”
