Register! United States tourists traveling in Mexico are encouraged to register with the U.S. State Department in case of an emergency situation. Please register in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at: https://step.state.gov/step/. STEP is the primary means that the U.S. Embassy uses to reach its citizens in Mexico. When you sign up, you will automatically receive email updates, including Travel Warnings and other important announcements such as hurricane warnings, volcano activity, or security messages.
Equally important, Americans living in Mexico are also encouraged to register for STEP so that they can be reached in case of emergency as well. More information on the program is available at: http://www.travel.state.gov/travel/tips/registration/registration_4789.html.
