Mexican travel warning issued
The Department of State is urging U.S. citizens to avoid northern border cities in Mexico including Tijuana, Nogales, Ciudad Juarez and Monterrey due to an increase in violent drug warfare.
The warning comes after the abduction and murder of two Americans in a northern Mexican state. The warning also comes at a time when many "spring breakers" travel to Mexico.
Travel Agents that News 12 New Jersey spoke with were quick to point out that areas further south are not a part of the travel advisory. According to travel agents, areas like Cancun, Maya Riviera and most 'tourist areas' are thousands of miles away from what would be considered unsafe.
