Hubbie is not worried
I don't know if I would be too worried either. If you were going to Cancun, AC, PV or Mexico City I'd be a little more concerned on those destinations. Especially Mexico City and Cancun. The high school in NY that was infected had just come back from a spring break trip to Cancun. A lot of areas of Mexico have the open air meat markets where they slaughter the entire animal right there in public and no sanitizing around. You don't see that in Cabo.

Your probably a lot closer to the swine flu outbreaks in NY right now than you will be in Cabo.

I'd call your doctor now and ask about getting some tamiflu to take with you just in case. They might do it for you knowing the situation going on right now. If not, if you start to get ill while your in Mexico there are pharmacies that might have it in stock and you won't need to see a doctor. I'd still rather have it from the doctor here as a precaution and carried on your person from day 1.

I go to Puerto Vallarta once year and will go again in 2010. If I were going now, I'd get a prescription for Tamiflu and go.

Wow, ignorance. Still not one case verified in Quintana Roo. And um, Cancun is 1,000 miles away from Mexico City. Did anyone stop to think that the kids in NY caught the bug in the AIRPORT???? Or their plane?!? Also interesting, Mexico just made a statement that their cases have waned.

^^^ And only 19 confirmed deaths in Mexico due to the swine flu. All of this reaction for that. I mean, sad that people and young children have suffered and died from this illness. Yet we don't see this panic and freak out happen during the flu season when 100's a day die from it just in the United States.

Mom: Here here. I think the word "pandemic" put people in a frenzy. That and alarmist Fox news. Boy are they annoying.

I've travelled to Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in 2002 and other than the somewhat pushy sales people at the airport trying to sell you timeshare properties, we enjoyed our trip, but again this was in 2002. Things might be different now. I also know that travelling to Rocky Point, on the northern end of the Sea of Cortez was enjoyable in the past, it's probably a little more dangerous now with Mexico's current crisis with the drug cartels.
