==Stay safe==
As of April 2011, Tamaulipas has become very unsafe even for Mexicans. The big problem now is the cartel wars (CDG, Z) that are terrifying all Tamaulipas. Traveling north to south has become very dangerous, as a recent discovery of more than 100 dead bodies has shown. The San Fernando area (around 100 km from the north) is one dangerous spot these days. In this region there was the discovery of an illegal graveyard where they found more than 100 bodies, some of them were slaughtered with cruelty by the Z cartel. It's strongly advised not to visit Tamaulipas now. If you really have to, take some measures not to draw attention from drug cartels (not fancy clothes, not much money, etc).
