Mexico travel warning mapped

TW0509MEXICOMAP2To help our readers better understand where dangers really exist in Mexico and to demonstrate that most parts of the country -- including all destinations popular with U.S. tourists -- remain safe, we have created a map that presents the warning visually. Each named location contains a number key that refers to exact language about that location in the State Department's warning.

To view the map, click on the image, right. We will continue to update the map as conditions in Mexico evolve and as new warnings are added or lifted.

The bottom line, as travel agents and wholesalers are well aware, is that all the most popular tourist areas are demonstrably safe. But just as you wouldn't feel comfortable sending a client to certain neighborhoods of New York, Washington, Miami, Los Angeles or Dallas, there are parts of Mexico that you would be wise to have them avoid. Recognizing that expertise about any destination is a travel agent's greatest asset, this map will continue to be updated with the most current information available to Travel Weekly.
