We would also like to take this opportunity to remind Canadians that Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada advises against non-essential travel to the south western states of Michoac√°n (excluding the city of Morelia) and Guerrero (excluding the cities of Ixtapa, Taxco and Zihuatanejo, as well as the tourist zone of Acapulco) due to the high levels of violence and organized crime. Exercise a high degree of caution in the excluded areas. For more information please consult www.travel.gc.ca/destinations/mexico

We look forward to meeting you.”
