The U.S. Embassy in Mexico took the decision to close services in coastal resort town Playa del Carmen on Wednesday night, issuing a statement on the alert that did not specifically state what the threat was.
The U.S. has closed its consular agency in a popular Mexican tourist spot and is barring its employees from traveling there over a "security threat". All U.S. government employees are now prohibited from travelling to Playa del Carmen until further notice.
The alert comes as many Canadians and Americans head south for spring break and just weeks after at least 25 people were injured when an explosion ripped through a ferry in Playa del Carmen.
The U.S. State Department says they are continuing to investigate with local authorities after discovering the undetonated explosive on March 1.
"Continue to exercise a high degree of caution in Playa del Carmen", reads the statement.
