Americans urged to ‘avoid’ visiting, exercise caution

People visit the pre-Columbian Mayan archaeological site of Tulum on October 30, 2021.

The Centers for Illness Management and Avoidance and State Division are urging People to “avoid travel to Mexico” owing to “quite high amounts of COVID,” but that is not the only warning for vacationers who may perhaps be wanting forward to Spring Break.

Final 7 days, U.S. consular authorities in Mexico reminded Americans to be very careful when traveling to several major getaway spots after two Canadians have been killed at a luxury resort in Playa Del Carmen.

“In light of modern safety incidents and prison action in common tourist places which include Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, and Tulum, U.S. citizens are reminded to work out increased warning when touring to the state of Quintana Roo,” The U.S. Consulate Standard Merida wrote in a vacation alert posted times after the Jan. 21 shooting. “Felony action and violence may come about all through the condition, such as spots frequented by U.S. citizen guests.”
