Consulate US in tourist resort Mexico close
playa del carmen - The United States has closed their consulate in the popular Mexican tourist resort Playa del Carmen due to 'a security risk'. American government employees are also not allowed to travel to Playa del Carmen for the time being.
Playa del Carmen is located in the state of Quintana Roo and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico. Every year thousands of Dutch travel via Cancun to Playa del Carmen.
The measure applies until further notice. In February, a bomb exploded on a ferry that sailed between Playa del Carmen and the Caribbean island of Cozumel. Because of the explosion on the tourist boat several wounded. Shortly afterwards, a non-exploded ticket was found on another ferry.
