DPS would like to share the below travel advisory should your spring break plans include this region. We also recommend checking prior to any travel abroad for the most up to date information. Last week the United States Department of State issued a security alert for Playa del Carmen, a popular tourist destination in Mexico. Quintana Roo state – Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution Exercise increased caution due to crime. According to Government of Mexico statistics, the state experienced an increase in homicide rates compared to the same period in 2016. While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted, criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens. Shooting incidents injuring or killing bystanders have occurred. U.S. government personnel are prohibited from travel to Centro, Calica, Gonzalo Guerrero, Quintas del Carmen, and Villas del Carmen neighborhoods of Playa del Carmen. These neighborhoods are bordered by Avenida Benito Juarez, 50 Avenida Sur (Highway 307), and Calle 34 Norte. U.S. citizens should avoid those neighborhoods until further notice. U.S. government personnel are authorized to travel to resort areas in Riviera Maya including those near Playa del Carmen that are outside the restricted neighborhoods of this alert. U.S. government personnel are still prohibited from using ferry services between Playa del Carmen and Cozumel until further notice. U.S. citizens should not use ferry services operating between Playa del Carmen and Cozumel. There are no restrictions on U.S. government employees for travel to other parts of Quintana Roo state, including tourist areas such as: Cancun, Cozumel, Tulum, and the Riviera Maya

Planning on Traveling Abroad? Beginning this month, the Bureau of Consular Affairs (CA) launched new products with travel advisories being issued for every country in the world. Travel advisories follow a consistent format and use plain language to help U.S. citizens find and use important security information. Travel advisories give a description of risks, provide clear actions U.S. citizens should take to help ensure their safety, and apply up to four standard levels of advice: • Level 1 --- Exercise Normal Precautions: This is the lowest advisory level for safety and security risk. There is some risk in any international travel. Conditions in other countries may differ from those in the U.S. and may change at any time. • Level 2 --- Exercise Increased Caution: Be aware of heightened risks to safety and security. • Level 3 --- Reconsider Travel: Avoid travel due to serious risks to safety and security. • Level 4 --- Do Not Travel: This is the highest advisory level due to greater likelihood of life-threatening risks. During an emergency, the U.S. government may have very limited ability to provide assistance. The DOS advises that U.S. citizens not travel to the country or to leave as soon as it is safe to do so.
