COLUMBIA, S.C.- The U.S Department of State has issued a level three travel advisory for several typical spring break destinations.

Jamaica is one of them, but USC student Ben Stangl believes that he and his crew will have no problem relaxing on the beaches of that Caribbean island.

“I mean, there’s levels of anxiety but I think we’ll all be relaxed,” said Stangl.

The travel advisory is due to the high amount of violent crime and low-level medical services.

The Bahamas also received a level two travel advisory after 18 murders were reported in Nassau since the beginning of this year.

Tourist expert Dr. Harrill advises students to avoid these popular destinations during spring break, but if your plans are locked in, then take extra caution and keep a low profile.
