MexicoThe latest travel warning for Mexico, issued by the U.S. State Department on Nov. 20, contained no essential changes or surprises from the last warning that was issued on Feb. 8, 2012.

While the new warning does not apply to most tourism destinations, it does continue to caution against nonessential travel to areas within 19 of Mexico's 32 states due to continued narcotics-related violence in Mexico, particularly in areas near the U.S.-Mexico border.

The State Department said there are no travel advisories for Mexico City, Cancun, Riviera Maya, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Merida, Tulum, Chichen Itza, Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Guadalajara, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, Oaxaca, Huatulco, Villahermosa, San Miguel de Allende and Leon.
