Chikungunya Disease

Been hearing a lot about this particular mosquito-borne illness running rampant through the Caribbean this year, but am unable to find any information about whether it's made it to Quintana Roo/Riviera Maya yet... Anyone have any info?

I think you need to worry more about Dengue Fever than Chikungunya. There's some on the playa.info forum that have had Dengue a couple of times and it's not nice.

CDC shows no Mexico connection

Always best to go to the experts. We aren't

But all of the US shows to be at risk as well!!

Have fun

Remember if it rains , bugs come out

I bring long pants, if the bugs are bad

They love my ankles

LOL about the ankles! For some reason they think the backs of my knees are tastiest!
