Mexico features two distinct holiday regions, the Caribbean Coast featuring resorts such as Cancun, and the beach laden Pacific Coast. Although these coastal areas hold the most appeal, Mexico also offers the chance to visit spectacular Mayan ruins and explore the country’s rich history. It’s an unfortunate fact that many holidaymakers visiting Mexico do not get to enjoy these experiences after becoming ill.
Although many all-inclusive holidaymakers enjoy a safe and healthy visit to Mexico there are still many reports of sickness, usually due to poor food hygiene. The most commonly reported holiday sicknesses are Salmonella, E. coli, and Campylobacter, all forms of food poisoning.
Due to many holidaymakers choosing an all-inclusive package this means they are likely to eat from the hotels buffet. This is often the source of the many reported cases of food poisoning in Mexico, with the food served at many resorts found to be undercooked or reheated leading to serious infections.
Becoming ill whilst on holiday in Mexico not only affects your health but can also leave holidaymakers out of pocket due to high medical expenses.
Although all holiday makers visiting Mexico are advised to drink only bottled water, poorly maintained swimming pools can also lead to serious stomach sickness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium.
It is your tour operators’ responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel.
