Spring Breakers Warned to Stay out of Mexico

Due to a recent outbreak in violence by Mexican drug cartels, the U.S. Department of Justice’s ATF Bureau has sent a clear warning to students to stay out of northern Mexico destinations this spring break. The State Department also warned students and other travelers to stay away from areas of prostitution and drug-dealing for the utmost security.

In recent weeks, communities like Tijuana and Rosarito Beach, just South of San Diego, have seen a surge in drug-related violence.

In a statement released by the ATF, special agent in charge John A. Torres said “I know that spring break is a rite of passage for many college students, however I would discourage traveling to places like Tijuana and Rosarito due to drug cartel violence affecting those areas. If they do decide to go, they should be sure and follow the information provided by the State Department in a recent Travel Alert.”
