U.S Advises Caution When Traveling to Mexico [AUDIO]
MEXICO CITY – If you have spring break plans for Mexico the U.S. State Department has a warning for you. They’ve expanded their travel warning to include more areas in the country.
However, AAA Minnesota’s Gail Weinholzer says, as long as you stay in the popular tourist cities, you should be okay.
And, she says, if you’re having second thoughts about going, you might be stuck.
The expanded warning is a result of increased violence among the Mexican drug cartels. The number of U.S. citizens that have been murdered in Mexico increased from 35 in 2007 to 120 in 2011.
