Tuesday, 14 Mar, 2023 0

Texans are advised not to head to Mexico for Spring Break.

The Texas Department of Public Safety warned of the risks of violence and crime.

It comes shortly after of the kidnapping of four Americans in Mexico which led to two deaths.

Three women have been missing in Mexico for over two weeks after crossing the border from Texas.

‘Level 4: Do Not Travel’ advisories are in effect for some Mexican states where the risk of danger is highest.

However, Spring Break hotspots such as Cancun is a less severe Level 2 advisory.

“Drug cartel violence and other criminal activity represent a significant safety threat,” Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw said.

“We have a duty to inform the public about safety, travel risks and threats.”

There are also seven states under the “Level 3: Reconsider Travel” advisory which includes popular Baja California.

Mexico is a top international destination for spring break travel.

In response to the warning, Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said his country is safer than the US.
