You won’t be bored in Mexico. It’s a country that’s buzzing and thriving with culture, art, music and life. The history of Mexico is kept very close to the surface by a very proud country of people who keep authenticity and tradition alive and well in their recipes, their crafts and their stories. You can pamper yourself in their stunning, luxury resorts or mix with the locals and immerse yourself in all things Mexican by staying in more rural areas. The vastness of the country is reflected in the great range of different experiences you can have in Mexico.

Mexico provides ample opportunity for you to stay in all-inclusive resorts and hotel complexes, but like with any place you decide to stay, you need to research the hygiene standards and be on the lookout for risks to your health. Shigella can be caught from door handles, toilets or taps which have become contaminated by faecal matter. This means that shigella can be spread very easily if many people come into contact with the virus by using public toilets. It’s essential that toilets and bathrooms are adequately maintained by hotel staff.
