If you’ve seen your fair-share of American films, you might associate Cancun with Spring Break, the time of year when American students descend on the Mexican resort to party and let their hair down. It’s a far-cry from the 1970s when Cancun was a small fishing town that was very traditional and authentically Mexican. The nightlife here is second to none and you’ll see colour, excitement and vibrancy everywhere you go. If you do fancy a bit of history, you’re never far away from remnants of the Mayan civilisation.

Traveller’s diarrhoea is a common form of illness in Cancun. This often occurs as a result of being served tap water or eating at a restaurant where hygiene measures may not be in place and food is prepared in unsanitary conditions causing it to become contaminated.

In addition to this, there have been a number of illnesses reported such as Salmonella, Campylobacter and E. Coli, as a result of holidaymakers coming into contact with contaminated food and water in hotel accommodation.
