I am looking to go to Tampico in the next few months but after reading the state department warning on traveling to this state am on the worried side. However, it does not list Tampico as one of the more dangerous cities to go to. I know that there has been one recent occuring of government crack downs on drug organizations and their activity.
I would be staying with a friend in a house and not going outside after dark as recommended. Has anyone been there recently from the U.S. that could comment on their experience and the level of safety and security within the city? Thanks.
