What Parts of Mexico Are Safe For Travel Now

What parts of Mexico are safe for travel now?

The US State Department rates areas of the world according to the safety level to travel there. These levels are called the Travel Advisory Levels.

Europe is presently rated Level 3 which is Reconsider Travel.

Mexico has areas the state department considers more dangerous than Europe. Those areas of Mexico are shown in Red. Red means Do Not Travel.

However, the US State Department rates some areas of Mexico as safer than Europe. Those areas are shown in Light Yellow, which means Exercise Increased Caution.

The US State Department does not rate the safety of the USA as a travel destination because Americans live there.

But if the USA rated itself, it would probably be rated as Do Not Travel. That is because the USA has 4% of the world population but 25% of all deaths in the world caused by coronavirus. Here is the data showing how lethal the USA is to human life right now.

Because the USA has been poorly managed during the coronavirus, Americans are not welcome in many countries right now.

There is a CNN article out today that describes all the countries that Americans can travel to without a COVID-19 test. It also lists countries Americans can travel to with a COVID-19 test, health insurance, quarantine conditions, or other requirements.

The countries where Americans are unconditionally welcome include Albania, Belarus, Brazil, Mexico,  Serbia, Turkey, and Zambia.

There is another set of countries requiring a negative test, quarantine, health insurance, or cash deposit before Americans are allowed to visit. Because of these restrictions, many people will be unwilling to travel to these other countries. (List Provided).

Mexico is our first choice because we (Qiang (Malaysian) and I (American)) are allowed to enter Mexico in areas that are relatively safe (Level 2- Yellow) for six months without doing a visa run.

So we can slow travel around Mexico for 6 months without worrying about our visa. However, we would probably decide to stay only in the Level 2, Yellow areas, as follows (as of today):
