On March 1, undetonated explosive devices were found by Mexican law enforcement on a tourist ferry that operates between Cozumel-Playa del Carmen, Mexico. On February 21, an explosive device detonated on a tourist ferry in Playa del Carmen resulting in injuries, including to U.S. citizens. U.S. Government employees are prohibited from using all tourist ferries on this route until further notice. Mexican and U.S. law enforcement continue to investigate.
Notably, the warning advises: "Purchase travel insurance that specifically covers you in Mexico and includes medical evacuation insurance." This is good advice whenever and wherever you travel. Also buy coverage for repatriation of remains.
