New U.S. Travel Advisory Reaffirms Mexico’s Major Tourist Destinations are Safe to Travel

We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the important updated U.S. State Department Travel Advisory system, classifying Mexico’s major international tourist destinations as safe for travel.

This week, the U.S. State Department introduced a new system for alerting Americans about possible security risks while traveling abroad. This system classifies every country based on four different risk levels, as outlined below:

  • Level 1: Exercise normal precautions
  • Level 2: Exercise increased caution
  • Level 3: Reconsider travel
  • Level 4: Do not travel

We are pleased to share that the following major international tourist destinations in Mexico, where Life is Better Traveling offers as destinations packages to customers, have been explicitly listed as having no travel restrictions:


  • Baja California Sur: Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo
  • Quintana Roo: Cancún, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Riviera Maya,
  • Isla Mujeres
  • Jalisco: Puerto Vallarta

The de-escalated warning confirms our consistent position that we consider the above tourist areas of Mexico a safe destination for you to enjoy. In fact, more than 35 million travelers come to Mexico each year, often as repeat visitors.

As part of this new system, different states such as Guerrero and Jalisco, can carry different warning levels by region. That considered, it is worth noting that despite the overall state’s higher advisory levels, there are no restrictions on U.S. government employees staying in the tourist areas of Puerto Vallarta falling within the same classification as major travel destinations such as Rome, Paris, and Bali.

Life is Better Traveling is committed to sharing information. As the new system continues to evolve and updates are received from the Mexican Tourism Board, we will endeavor to share the information.
