U.S. State Department warns college students not to travel to Mexico for Spring Break

It's spring break time for a lot of college students, which means drinking, debauchery, and trips out of town.

The U.S. State Department knows it's party time, and it's warning students to stay away from certain parts of Mexico where crime has made travel dangerous for Americans.

The travel warning replaces the one issued last April, and warns travelers from going to 14 of Mexico's 31 states including popular places like Baja California Sur, Guerrero, and Nayarit:

“U.S. citizens have been the victims of violent crimes, including homicide, kidnapping, carjacking and robbery in various Mexican States.

The state of Guerrero was the most violent state in Mexico in 2015 for the third year in a row, and self-defense groups operate independently of the government in many areas of Guerrero.  Armed members of these groups frequently maintain roadblocks and, although not considered hostile to foreigners or tourists, are suspicious of outsiders and should be considered volatile and unpredictable.”

But despite the travel warnings, travel to places like Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas is still booming.

We say just stay home.  Nothing good happens when you leave the house.
