When Zachary Newell went to Mexico City for spring break, he had no idea how much it would change his life. When he got injured after falling down a staircase, he thought his US health insurance had him covered. However, he soon found out that was not the case.
When we go on vacation, we are ready to have the time of our lives, and think there’s no way something like this could happen to me. But as Zachary Newell found out, tragedy can strike anyone anywhere, and it is vital to be prepared.
Mexico is a popular spring break destination, but it has risks that vacationers need to be aware of.
The State Department has issued new “do not travel” advisories for five Mexico states following surges in gang-related violent crime. Advising to avoid the areas of Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas. U.S. government employees are forbidden from traveling to those states due to “widespread violent crime.” Up to this point, these coastal areas were mostly sheltered from the drug war violence. But it’s now creeping across the nation, making 2017 one of the deadliest years in Mexico yet.
