Spring break is just around the corner, and the federal government is giving a stern warning to students about where they choose to vacation.
Mexico is a popular tourist destination, especially for spring break travelers. But, recent spikes in violence have prompted the government to step in. Sunday, it issued a travel warning for Mexican cities including Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez.
Consular affairs says dozens of Americans have disappeared in recent years.
Local students hear the message loud and clear. "I know I don't want to be one of those people, you know, I've seen too many, especially spring break movies about people going and killing americans because they're americans, I don't want to be one of those people," said Priscilla Ruedas, Allan Hancock College student.
The warning asks visitors to stay on main highways and be careful of men dressed as police officers.
