You may have seen yesterday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article detailing a series of druggings, sexual assaults and other crimes against visitors to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and alleging that travel agents and popular websites systematically fail to share the risks with those booking such travel. While these negative experiences are certainly the exception to the rule for the 30+ million Americans visiting Mexico each year, it raises issues of what exactly agents should disclose to clients in terms of safety. While ASTA is following the current issue closely, we put together some member guidance last year that may be helpful to you and your staff.
