2017 Mexico Travel Advisory

Updated Sep 13, 2017
Travel to Mexico

Mexico welcomes 35 million international visitors a year and is currently the eighth most visited country in the world. Overall, international visitors to Mexico increased by more than 9 percent between January and July this year as compared to last year. As a leading tourist destination, visitor health and safety is one of Mexico’s top priorities. The recent U.S. State Department Travel warnings pertain specifically to isolated incidents of violence taking place in locations not frequented by international tourists.  Such incidents are extremely rare in popular tourist areas. The Mexican government and Mexican tourism board have long-standing protocols in place to prevent any disruption in tourist areas. They also support strict guidelines and a strong commitment to the highest standards of excellence in hospitality. Visitors consistently return home reporting positive experiences.
