If you plan on traveling to Mexico, the U.S. Department of State issued a travel warning yesterday (August 22nd) for Americans traveling to Mexico, cautioning against going to certain areas because of increased criminal activity.

Areas including Baja California Sur, home to tourist destination Cabo San Lucas, and Quintana Roo, where Cancun and Riviera Maya are located, have seen a spike in murder rates this year. However, the advisory notes that resort areas and tourist destinations don’t usually have the same level of drug-related violence and crime as in other parts of the country.

It also said there’s no evidence that criminal groups have targeted Americans based on their nationality.
