State Department issues Mexico travel warnings

The state department is issuing a travel warning for anyone headed to Mexico.

The State Department has issued a new travel warning for travelers heading to Mexico. The warning comes after U.S. citizens have been the victim of violent crimes in several part of Mexico.

The warning say that travel to the popular spring break destination Rocky Point should be limited to day light hours and only by the main highway. Other areas in the state of Sonora listed as key areas of drug and human smuggling should be avoided.

The full warning reads:

"The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens about the risk of traveling to certain places in Mexico due to threats to safety and security posed by organized criminal groups in the country. U.S. citizens have been the victims of violent crimes, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery by organized criminal groups in various Mexican states. For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, which can vary, travelers should reference the state-by-state assessments further below. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning for Mexico, issued May 5, 2015, to update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government (USG) personnel."
