Lately, there was an American woman who traveled alone to Mexico and died in a resort. This horrific incident raised caution and awareness because it wasn’t the first time such incident occurred within the past few years.

The Department of State cautioned U.S travelers about visiting half of the country’s states, some of them are highly popular, and now they are the capital of crime and violence.

Mexico is a gorgeous country and number one destination for U.S citizens, but unfortunately, the amount of robbery, kidnapping, homicide, and carjacking that is targeting most Americans is very scary. Here are some tips to stay safe in Mexico:

– Drink only from sealed bottles you inspected yourself to avoid any unusual and dangerous incident. Watching your drink should be taken very seriously in Mexico.
