Issued by US Department of State

Jan 31, 2003

This Public Announcement is being issued to alert U.S. citizens to the need for caution when traveling in the State of Chiapas. It expires on May 29, 2003.

There have recently been disturbing incidents involving violence and threats of violence against foreigners and establishments catering to foreign tourists in remote areas. In many parts of Chiapas, there is no effective law enforcement or police protection. U.S. citizens should avoid traveling in the areas where disputes are known to be ongoing, including rural areas east of Ocosingo, and the entire southeastern jungle portion of the State to the east of Comitan.

Information regarding safety and security is also available from the U.S. Embassy, located in Mexico City at Paseo de la Reforma 305, Colonia Cuauhtemoc. The Embassy's telephone from the United States is 011-52-55-5080-2000. The number from within Mexico City is 5080-2000 and from other parts of Mexico is 01-5080-2000.
