The U.S. State Department issued a new travel advisory for Mexico in July. As Travel Weekly reported, the advisory is pretty much the same as the last travel advisory, issued in November 2012. Non-essential travel is discouraged for 19 of Mexico’s 32 states. Popular tourist destinations in Mexico remain excluded from the advisory.
Popular attractions that are safe to travel to include: Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, San Miguel de Allende, Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City, the Riviera Nayarit, Oaxaca, Huatulco, Puerto Escondido, Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Tulum, Merida, and Chichen Itza. While the state of Guerrero is on the list of risky traveling spots, certain cities have been determined as safe for tourism, including Acapulco, Taxco, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo.
