Mexico is an increasingly popular holiday destination for tourists the world over, thanks to its superb weather and remnants of its ancient civilization, which is everywhere to see. Mexico caters for all, from 5 star luxury resorts, authentic stays in colonial mansions or traditional hideaways off the beaten track, where you can try spectacular food made to local recipes.

Unfortunately wherever you are staying, illness can still occur. Cryptosporidium is a particularly nasty parasite made up of one cell, which occurs when water becomes infected and it’s a virus that can be caught in Mexico. The conditions that cause the parasite to occur are if swimming pool water becomes contaminated by faecal matter, usually from birds or animals. If the pool is then poorly maintained and not kept to an adequate standard of hygiene the parasite will thrive and can be spread to holiday makers if they ingest the water. Even if holiday-makers do not spend much time in the pool, if other people have and are handling food around them, then the parasite can spread. Cryptosporidium can spread very quickly from person to person.
