Mexico travel advice

Recent protests have affected Mexico City and other parts of the country, including the state of Guerrero. There is a continued possibility of demonstrations and illegal roadblocks have been reported more frequently, particularly in the state of Guerrero.

If you’re driving in Guerrero, travel during daylight hours and use toll roads, although you may still encounter disruptions. If possible, travel by air if you’re visiting a major tourist destination in Guerrero. Avoid demonstrations and follow the advice of the local authorities.

Most victims of crime and violence in Mexico are Mexicans involved in criminal activity, but the security situation also poses risks for foreigners. Be alert to the existence of street crime as well as more serious violent crime like robbery, assault and vehicle hijacking. In certain parts of Mexico you should take particular care to avoid being caught up in drug related violence between criminal groups.
