The Canadian government is advising travellers against going on cruise excursions using ferry services in the Mexican resort city of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

This comes after 26 people were injured in February following an explosion on a ferry.

The government has also advised visitors to generally use caution when travelling in Mexico, but there's no reason to panic, according to Maritime Travel agent Alan Pink.

He says there's a difference between an advisory and a warning.

"Until the government actually issues a warning, there's not a lot of options that we have," said Pink. 

Pink says if an official warning is issued, some travel agencies may be able to refund clients or offer a credit for future travel, but it's not guaranteed.

For the time being he says as long as travellers steer clear of ferries and exercise caution while travelling, there's no reason they still can't have a good time.
