“We have this idea of armored vehicles, black Suburbans and a whole convoy of vehicles. We recommend a different approach: Keeping as low a profile as possible. You don’t want to draw attention; you don’t want to be flagged by cartel lookouts."
In a recent article for Border Report, Global Guardian's Director of Intelligence Michael Ballard discusses violence in Mexico related to drug cartel activity, conflict hotspots throughout the region—as reported in Global Guardian's 2023 Risk Map—and advice for business and leisure travelers to mitigate their risk.
