Heightened Mexico Travel Advisory Alert Status for Colima
Mexico travel advisory -- The U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara recommends American Citizens defer non-essential travel to areas of the state of Colima that border the state of Michoacan, including the city of Tecoman. You should also exercise caution when travelling to other parts of the state, including the towns of Colima city and Manzanillo. The security situation along the Michoacan border continues to be the most unstable with shootouts occurring between rival criminal groups and with Mexican authorities. Homicides throughout the state have risen sharply in 2012.
The Consulate recommends you review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates.
