Statement from the U.S. Consulate in Guadalajara
The Consulate wishes to inform American Citizens that Mexican authorities report the criminal activity that took place throughout Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta and the states of Jalisco and Colima has been brought under control at this time. Major highways are clear. The shelter in place order for Consulate employees has been lifted.
Clashes between criminal organizations and Mexican authorities may continue. American Citizens are advised to remain vigilant and monitor local media reports.
We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Mexico enroll in the Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at www.Travel.State.Gov. STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If you don't have Internet access, enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
Regularly monitor the State Department's website, where you can find current Travel Warnings (including the Travel Warning for Mexico), Travel Alerts, and the Worldwide Caution. Read the Country Specific Information for Mexico. For additional information, refer to "A Safe Trip Abroad" on the State Department's website.
