The U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara has revised the travel policy for official U.S. Government employees and families in Guadalajara’s consular district due to a changing security situation in Nayarit. The U.S. Consulate continues to encourage U.S. citizens to exercise extreme caution when traveling in or near Tepic or Xalisco, Nayarit. In addition, the consulate now also recommends exercising extreme caution when travelling to all points in Nayarit north of Tepic. There is no advisory against travel to Riviera Nayarit and on highway 200, often used to travel from Guadalajara to Puerto Vallarta.
U.S. citizens resident or traveling in Mexico are urged to enroll with the U.S. Embassy or nearest U.S. Consulate via the Department of State's on-line registration service through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) located at http://travel.state.gov. Travel registration allows the Department of State to contact its citizens in the event of an emergency and to provide up-to-date safety and security information. Registrants wishing to receive such information must provide an e-mail address with their registration. All registrants are urged to provide complete contact information and a departure date when completing their registration on-line.
For the latest security information, U.S. citizens living and traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs internet web site at http://travel.state.gov, where the current Worldwide Caution, Travel Alerts, Travel Warnings, and health-information resources can be found.
