Reports from the local press today indicate that State authorities in Quintana Roo have at least temporarily closed the popular Playa Norte beach club bar & restaurant Playa Sol after an outbreak of fish borne food poisoning at the restaurant. Over two dozen people including both national and foreign tourists were stricken with the condition after apparently ingesting fish laden with the toxin "ciguatera". Problems with ciguatera have occurred in the past on Isla, particularly involving the consumption of barracuda. The restaurant management claims their customers were served Red Snapper, another possibility.
There's no word as to when Playa Sol will be re-opened pending further investigation.
