I'm going the same time as lindiloo in about 3 weeks. We most likely will not cancel. You can catch almost anything anywhere. The European Union is urging their people not to travel to the United States. For all we know, we could catch it from our co-worker down the hall. No one in the US has died and most are being treated at home, with antibiotics like a normal flu. I'm not really worried since all you have to do is practice good hygiene and don't be around sick people. I understand their cause of concern, but media really likes to get people worked up- just like the violence in Mexico.

CRT, HERE WE COME!!!!

Just a note from me, a Registered Nurse....

Flu is treated with Anti-virals, NOT Anti-biotics.

Be Safe....Hand washing is the number 1 thing you can do to prevent infection!

We are scheduled to leave in 13 days...not sure what we will do yet....

We're scheduled the same time as you guys. Luckily, we have some time to see how things develop. To this point, I've seen nothing that would change our plans.

Has anyone seen any specific travel advisories related to the Yucatan Peninsula? We plan to leave for CRT one week from today. Everything I've seen relates to central Mexico and border towns.

Sorry, I meant anti-virals. I am looking into travel insurance now. I normally don't buy anything. Does everyone else have it? Anyone know of a reputable company? I'm looking at travelsafe.com

moon-

be careful before you buy it. some are saying anything after 4/24 won't cover swine flu related claims since it's a "known/pre-existing" condition.

also, most will have exclusions specifically for pandemics/epidemics. read whatever policy you are considering carefully before you buy it. i read insurance policies for a living (yawn i know), but i can read it for you before you buy it if you want. just PM me.

Was going to leave for CRT on Friday,,I have my older mother with me and no way am I going to risk it. My biggest fear was if we looked sick they could hold us in Mexico. Not the adventure I was looking for I rebooked to the Florida keys and am happy with my choice. Mexico will be there next year. To all of you going have fun I may have overreacted but better safe then sorry.

Just returned from my doctor for another reason but he informed me that people are overreacting and not to worry.
