Warning issued for those traveling to Cancun

(WQOW)- Mexico is always a hot spot for travelers, but health officials are warning Americans traveling there to use caution. 

The warning comes after eight bodies were found this week in Cancun, a popular tourist area. 

Mexican officials said none of the killings happened in the city’s beach-sized hotel zone.

News 18 sat down with Jessi Mishler, a local travel agent, who said although officials are warning to be cautious, it doesn’t mean you need to cancel your trip. 

"The advisory level is a level two, which is the same as Germany or France or the United Kingdom, so when you put it in perspective, it’s not as dangerous as people are kind of making it out to be," Mishler said. 

Mishler said people who live in other countries wanting to visit America also see travel warnings from here because of mass shootings and gang violence, but it’s pretty safe to travel to the United States.
