U.S. State Dept. Issues No Travel Restrictions to Popular Destinations in Mexico


The newly updated U.S. State Department Travel Advisory system has classified Mexico’s major international tourist destinations as safe for travel.


The U.S. State Department recently introduced a new system for alerting Americans about possible security risks while traveling abroad, classifying every country based on four different risk levels, as outlined below:


Level 1: Exercise normal precautions

Level 2: Exercise increased caution

Level 3: Reconsider travel

Level 4: Do not travel


While travelers are always advised to exercise caution while traveling, the following major international tourist destinations in Mexico, which are often frequented by destination wedding couples and honeymooners, were explicitly listed as having no travel restrictions:

  • Baja California Sur: Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo
  • Quintana Roo: Cancún, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Riviera Maya, Isla Mujeres
  • Jalisco: Puerto Vallarta

More than 35 million travelers come to Mexico each year.
