Guerrero, which includes Acapulco, Ixtapa, Taxco and Zihuatanejo, is listed as "Level 4 - Do Not Travel".

While Mexico has an overall warning level of 2, but half of its 31 states have been flagged either a 3 or 4.

Agency officials announced a new numbered classification system for world travel on Wednesday, replacing a confusing array of "travel alerts" and "travel warnings" found on its website.

Ranking Pakistan on Level 3, the State Department asked Americans to reconsider travel to this country due to terrorism.

The U.S. Department of State warns there is always a risk with worldwide travel since the conditions in any country can change at any time. But on Wednesday, an additional 11 states got a level-3 rating, placing half of the North American country under level-3 or 4 warnings.

Some say the increased warning is a direct result of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents increasing their apprehension activity. "Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Chapala, and Ajijic". They require a one-time waiver explaining why they need to go.

The state with second-highest homicide rate - 61.6 per 100,000 - was Baja California Sur, home to the twin resorts of Los Cabos. While alerts were generally shorter-term or related to specific events, and warnings were meant to be stronger, the new system is created to provide additional clarity and guidance.

And Antarctica? That's a 2 - "exercise increased caution" - for "environmental hazards posed by extreme and unpredictable weather", according to the State Department.
