- The US Embassy in Mexico has barred government workers from going to Playa del Carmen.
- The embassy said it was responding to a “security threat” after two incidents involving explosives in recent weeks.
- It’s not clear where the explosives came from or why the tourist area was targeted.
Less than a week after the US Embassy in Mexico issued an alert cautioning US citizens about travel to Playa del Carmen, the State Department has prohibited US government workers from traveling to the resort area and closed the US consulate there in response to potential danger in the area.
