Head to Northern Africa and you’ll find Tunisia, where over 7 million tourists descend every year to enjoy the sun, sand and Sahara. Head to a traditional Tunisian restaurant and sample some Maghrebi cuisine or the increasingly fashionable restaurants and shops that are being influenced by nearby Morocco. The relaxed nature of Tunisia is there for all to feel and hotels and resorts will provide relaxed, atmospheric get-a-ways for holidaymakers.

Cryptosporidium is a type of intestinal infection caused by a parasite that thrives in unsanitary conditions. The infection can cause gastroenteritis which can have particularly debilitating symptoms such as diarrhoea and vomiting. It is one of the most common forms of holiday illness in Tunisia because the infection usually stems from unhygienic swimming pools. The water can become contaminated by faecal matter and if the pool is not cleaned properly this can be hazardous. If contaminated water is consumed then the infection can be contracted. If food is prepared with unsanitary water then this can also cause cryptosporidium.
