The US state department has warned tourists to "completely avoid" five states in Mexico because of rampant crime levels and gang activity.
Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa and Tamaulipas have all been classified as a level-four risk, the highest in the scale.
That puts them at the same levels as conflict-ridden countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

The Samalayuca sand dunes are considered one of Mexico's best-kept secrets. With their stunning views and endemic vegetation, they have plenty of potential to attract tourists, nature lovers and sand boarders. But their location, just 50km (30 miles) south of Ciudad Juárez, means few venture out here as many are put off by the Mexican city's high murder rate.

John Feeley, a former Marine Corps helicopter pilot, said he was "honor-bound" to resign. "As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies," Mr Feeley said in his resignation letter.
"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come."

Mexico's corrupt, failing government that covers up official mass murders by attacking journalists and dissidents with cyberweapons is locked in a stalemate with the country's horrific, mass-murdering gangs, and the Mexican people are caught in the crossfire.
Mexican cities secede to escape corruption and cartels, forming corporate dystopias, precarious utopian projects, and Mad Maxish militia towns. Mexico's corrupt, failing government that covers up official mass murders by attacking journalists and dissidents with cyberweapons is locked in a stalemate with the country's horrific, mass-murdering gangs, and the Mexican people are caught in the crossfire.
The weak Mexican state has made it possible for cities across the country to effectively secede, abandoning the political parties, the state-funded police, and even the rule of law in a bid to find stability.

At least eighteen people were killed in weekend violence on Mexico's west coast, authorities said Sunday. Navy forces clashed with suspected hitmen late Saturday, killing seven of them in San Jose del Cabo in Baja California Sur state, officials said.
Marines responding Saturday night to reports of gunfire in San Jose del Cabo came upon heavily armed men wearing tactical vests and riding in two vehicles with license plates from the U.S. state of California.
Both vehicles sped off with the marines in pursuit and subsequently crashed, the statement said. In two separate exchanges of gunfire, all seven of the cars’ occupants were shot dead by marines.

Bodies found hanging from three overpasses, two of which were above highways running to the airports in La Paz and Los Cabos, raising the question of whether organized crime was specifically trying to hurt the tourism sector, which generates about 90 percent of the economic activity in Los Cabos.
The killings raised fears that cartel violence could affect tourism as it has to devastating effect in Acapulco in Guerrero state.
The state’s murder rate of 50 per 100,000 residents now ranks third in Mexico, trailing only Colima and Guerrero. Violence has surged over the past three years rising 223%

2 million U.S. expats living in Mexico. And one of the main reasons is that the Mexican government makes it easy for foreigners to stay for extended periods.
There are 2 million U.S. expats living in Mexico. And one of the main reasons is that the Mexican government makes it easy for foreigners to stay for extended periods.
A tourist visa, given to you automatically at the airport in Mexico or at any land border crossing, gives you 180 days. Many expats, especially those who live part- time in their home country and part- time in Mexico, go this route.

Factors led to the rising violence, such as an increasing production of heroin in Mexico amid epidemic opioid use in the United States.
Mexico’s new, deadlier crime warlords. Citizens are bearing the toll of increased violence as the drug cartels fragment into more lethal groups. Cartel fragmentation is one of the key reasons that Mexico is suffering a new high in overall violence. The nation's total body count has topped 20,800 in the first 10 months of 2017, the highest number this century.
Other factors have also led to the rising violence, such as an increasing production of heroin in Mexico amid epidemic opioid use in the United States.
The older drug traffickers such as "El Chapo" Guzman also enjoyed a certain support in impoverished communities, where people saw the benefits of drug money.
But the new crime warlords are unlikely to garner such backing. The gangs have become more predatory and this changes the politics of crime fighting," he says. "They pose a major threat to people's life, liberty and property. The support of sections of Mexican society to drug cartels will be gone."
