PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico – Mexican security officials say an armed group has robbed 22 foreign tourists who were traveling by bus near the coastal city of Puerto Vallarta. The statement said a group of hooded attackers intercepted the bus while it was passing through the town "El Nogalito." The statement didn't disclose the nationalities of the robbed tourists and police hadn't found the suspects.
The U.S. State Department recently warned against nonessential travel to parts of Jalisco state, where Puerto Vallarta is located. The warning didn't name Puerto Vallarta itself.
