BEDFORD, Texas, Nov. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mexico has long been a favorite destination for American tourists. Affordable and convenient, Mexico draws millions of vacationers each year. Unfortunately, safety issues and a travel alert issued by the U.S. government, have kept millions from visiting this diverse, and beautiful country. Ultimate Excursions reviews these safety concerns and what they mean for American vacationers.
While the majority of Americans have heard about the safety issues which are occurring in Mexico, many assume these warnings and alerts relate to all parts of the country. This is severely impacting the tourism industry and leading to dwindling numbers of tourists from the U.S., even in otherwise "safe" destinations. While organized criminal groups, violent crimes and concern for the safety of citizens and those visiting have led the U.S. Department of State to issue a travel warning regarding the safety of certain areas of the country, the vast majority of the country remains safe.
While many have deferred travel, millions of Americans still travel in and out of popular Mexican cities each year. Continued updates to the travel alert issued by the U.S. have shown small improvement in many areas including its prime tourist locations, Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
What this means for American's who are looking to travel to Mexico, is that as an informed traveler, it is important to research your destination, know what to avoid and what to watch for when you travel. Mexico is an amazing country with a rich culture and heritage and thousands of sites and areas worth exploring, as long as travelers know where it is safe to explore, they can travel with very little concerns. For those looking to travel to Mexico from the U.S., only 8 of Mexico's over 30 states are off limits. In an additional 12 states, travelers are advised to exercise caution, while all others have no travel alerts in effect.
Travelers can find out more details about this travel alert by visiting travel.state.gov.
