We are staying here currently in tower 2 for a wedding. Between 4 of us who came into town together, each has had a horrible 24 hour bug, each at a different time. Symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea...all the fun stuff. Really just horrible. We have not been drinking the water and have had no common foods that we can pin down.
The wedding was yesterday and another couple also staying in tower 2 mentioned that they had both had the same thing. Apparently they were also approached by someone in the elevators who asked them if they had been sick, they answered yes and were told by the person asking that 15 out of 17 (may have been 14 out of 16) in their group had all had the same thing! Severe illness for 24 hours. All staying in tower 2.
We have several friends in tower 1 and no one has been sick. I'm starting to become seriously concerned that there is something specific going around in tower 2 and not sure how to approach with management? I mentioned to someone out front this morning but merely in passing.
Worth mentioning, the smell in tower 2 is absolutely disgusting. I'm on my third week in Mexico so am well aware of the every once in a while passing of a sewer smell but this is constant and overwhelming. Our room was unbearable and we finally had to ask to be moved-which they did without issue-makes me wish I had requested earlier!
Anyways, I'm not really sure my point to posting this but felt for some reason I needed to put it out there. I absolutely love mexico and hate that for many people this illness will change their views on it. Also, an unfortunate end for my 3.5 wonderful weeks in paradise. :(
