I was in Playa Del Carmen Mexico recently when the Canadian government issued a travel advisory. Every Canadian I met was unhappy with the lack of knowledge or reasoning presented by the Canadian Government as to why they issued a travel advisory. This created the situation where you did not know what dangers to look out for or really how to deal with the issue. Travel advisories should outline why they have been issued and advise on how to deal with them other than just jumping back on a plane to Canada. There was clealry more going on that one could see but what actually was going on...it was a mystery and not self evident to any of us.
