College students warned about Mexico travel

The U.S. State Department and universities around the country are warning college students headed for Mexico for some spring-break partying of a surge in drug-related murder and mayhem south of the border.

“We’re not necessarily telling students not to go, but we’re going to certainly alert them,” said Tom Dougan, vice president for student affairs at the University of Rhode Island. “There have been Americans kidnapped, and if you go you need to be very aware and very alert to this fact.”

Looks like Mexico`s tourism industry is gonna take a hit thanks to all the violence going on down south, while the Caribbean and Miami should see a nice little bump in business. The violence down in Mexico is very serious and I hope it doesn`t spill over into the U.S.
