Mexico travel warnings by state

This map shows the recent US department of state travel warnings for Mexico by state. The red are states that have total travel advisories, while the blue are those with partial advisories for certain regions within the state. The white is the states that currently do not have any travel advisories. From looking at this map it would seem as if the Yucatan Peninsula, Chiapas, Oaxaca, and a corridor leading up to Mexico City is currently the safest parts of the country.

    That map makes me laugh. I’ve been to many of those places in the last year, and had no problems.

      Strange, huh? When I actually crunched the numbers I was really surprised at what I found. It’s funny that Mexico is getting such a bad rap when nearly all of its southern neighbors down to Chile present statistically way higher risks for the traveler.
