US to re-open consulate at Mexican resort after threatThe US consulate at the Mexican Caribbean resort of Playa del Carmen will re-open Monday after it was closed for several days due to an unspecified security threat, the US embassy said. US government personnel are banned from several area neighborhoods until further notice, but “are authorized to travel to resort areas in Riviera Maya including those near Playa del Carmen,” the statement read. The beachside tourist magnets of Cancun and Playa del Carmen are located in the Riviera Maya, on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula.
