American Tourists Risk Their Lives To Vacation In Mexico

American tourists risk gang shootings, illicit alcohol, and even death while they vacation in increasingly drug and violence infested Mexico.

According to New York Post Tatiana Mirutenko emerged happy from a bar in an upscale part of Mexico City after a night of dancing. Seconds later, the 27-year-old Chicago native was dead — hit by a stray bullet from two men on a speeding motorcycle.

Mirutenko, her husband and a group of friends had traveled to the sprawling metropolis of 21 million people to celebrate a delayed honeymoon and a first wedding anniversary in July.

It’s a tale that’s tragically unfolded far too many times – a foreigner’s dream vacation to Mexico ending up in senseless death.

Violent crime and murder is rampant in parts of Mexico, especially in Acapulco – a popular beach resort stop that’s also known as the nation’s murder capital.

In 2017 alone there were a staggering 953 homicides in Acapulco, a jump from 918 in 2016. The violence was so dangerous the U.S. State Department warned Americans to stay away.

The state of Guerrero, where Acapulco is located, and other Mexican states have Level 4 ‘Do Not Travel’ advisory warnings, the same as Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq, according to the New York Post. 

Last year there were more than 35million visitors to Mexico.

In October 2018 Mexico saw 688,000 visitors from the U.S., a seven per cent increase from the year prior.

At the same time, the gut-wrenching stories of American tourists being viciously killed or targeted have surged.

In July Tatiana Mirutenko, a 27-year-old from Chicago, was killed by a stray bullet fired by two men on a speeding motorcycle as she was emerging from a bar in an upscale part of the city after a night of dancing.  More
