About Landscape

Mexico Security and Risk Overview

The business traveler to Mexico is ill-served by a national or regional level risk assessment approach. Rather, Mexico travel risk must be viewed through the lens of locality. For example, risk levels in Cancun are not nearly the same as Monterrey. Corporate security organizations wedded to general travel advice for Mexican regions will not only find themselves saying “No” to business opportunities in safer towns but saying “Yes” to potentially life-threatening visits to villages that should be off-limits. More than ever before, business travelers unaware of the risk distinctions from district to district, and neighborhood to neighborhood are either placing themselves at unprecedented risk or missing out on closing deals in places where the risk is manageable. Click here to learn more about Mexico Risk and Security

A multitude of threats exists within Mexico, as per any other LATAM country. Whether Crime, Narco-Terrorism, road safety, or natural disaster, it is important to speak with risk management specialists to understand ground truth specific to your local area of operations and travel itinerary.
