This week's warning, meanwhile, is tied specifically to a security threat.
But it did say that "we do not have information relating the ferry explosion to the security threat in Playa del Carmen".
The U.S. Embassy in Mexico has issued a new travel alert for the Caribbean resort city of Playa del Carmen, where an explosion on a tourist ferry injured 26 people last month.
The state department is getting specific, saying travel restrictions are now limited to the Centro, Calica, Gonzalo Guerrero, Quintas del Carmen, and Villas del Carmen neighborhoods of Playa del Carmen. "We encourage travelers to be aware of surroundings and exercise caution". The Mexican government says the alert is not related to the ferries. That incident came about a week after an explosive device detonated on another ferry, injuring several passengers.
And while US citizens aren't explicitly forbidden to visit Playa del Carmen, if the consulate and embassy services are unavailable in a place you're planning to be, it's generally a good idea to head somewhere else. Why?
Both incidents are still under investigation with no apparent motive released to the public yet. "We do not know why the USA government chose to emit this alert", officials said, according to the Associated Press. "We recommend USA citizens planning travel to the area consider this information before making travel decisions".
The State Department urged Americans to consider the alert and to exercise caution, should they choose to continue with their travel plans to the area. It warns that some areas are experiencing violent crime such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery.
"We do not know why the USA government made a decision to emit this alert", the state government said.
