SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – If you are planning a trip to Mexico, you’re being advised to be extra careful because of rising crime and kidnapping.

Tijuana and Rosarito are at a level three safety risk, officials saying there could be a conflict between criminal organizations and Mexican security forces, and tourists could risk injury or death.

Officials say if you do need to travel to Tijuana keep a low profile, be aware of your surroundings, and in an emergency call 911.
