“In certain parts of Mexico you should take particular care to avoid being caught up in drug related violence between criminal groups.” The violence has raged across at least five Mexican cities and even spilled into America when two Zetas were killed by Gulf Cartel members in Texas in 2010.

The two-year rivalry between Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel has killed thousands of people since early 2010, and has grown increasingly bloody in recent months after the participation of gunmen loyal to Joaquín Guzmán Loera of the Sinaloa cartel.
