The government warns that people should be extra careful at night while at this drinking destination.

Recently the state has experienced an increase in homicide rates.

Baja California Sur, which happens to be the location of popular vacation spot Cabo San Lucas, also made the warning list because they experience high rates of homicide.

Travelers should also stay clear of Guerrero. In 2015 the state was rated the most violent in Mexico for the 3rd year in a row.
