Why Did US Issue Travel Warning For Playa Del Carmen, Mexico?

The state government also stressed the safety of the destination, noting that President Enrique Peña Nieto is scheduled to visit Playa del Carmen today for an ocean conservation conference, the Associated Press reported.

The US travel ban was issued late on Wednesday and was later cited by the Canadian government in its own warning.

Candles and condolence messages are seen outside the Blue Parrot nightclub in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, on January 17, 2017.

"Mexico is by far the most popular sun destination among our clients but, of course, if someone is feeling uncomfortable travelling anywhere, we can always find them somewhere else to go", Wallace said.

Initial reports had indicated the explosion was caused either by a gas leak or engine failure, but a security alert posted on the U.S. Embassy website the blast was caused by an explosive device. Playa del Carmen's beaches and resorts have typically been a huge attraction for spring break travelers from the United States.

Air India said on Tuesday that while it had issued such a request, the regulator had yet to give it a positive answer. Air India had earlier announced to start direct flight between Delhi and Tel Aviv.

Be aware of your surroundings and exercise caution. "Shooting incidents injuring or killing bystanders have occurred". "Effective immediately, USA government employees are prohibited from travelling to Playa del Carmen until further notice".

Last summer, vacationers were warned to be careful drinking alcohol in Mexico after a US traveler died at a resort near Playa del Carmen after drinking and other tourists said they had blacked out after drinking, USA Today reported. "Avoid tourist ferries travelling in the region until further notice, be vigilant and monitor local media (including social media)". Government employees are now prohibited from riding any tourist ferries in the area, and state and federal prosecutors are investigating the incidents.

Last week four gunmen burst into a hospital in Cancun and shot to death a drug gang suspect and his wife.

More than 20 people including some USA citizens were injured in the explosion, but no perpetrator has yet been found, BI reported.

The Canadian government said Mexican authorities located another explosive device on a ferry also operating out of Playa del Carmen on Mar.1.
