    Hola! I am planning my first trip to Mexico to Tamazunchale, San Lois Potosi in June; is that area safe? The drug cartels really aren't near that area, are they? Thanks :)

    I am a student at a UK university going on an exchange to Mexico city in Feb. 2010. Do I need a visa? Also is it easy enough to draw cash from a cash point in the city?

    Hi! I have travel plans to go to Cancun next week. Is it safe to go there? Not only because of drug cartels, but also because of swine flu break out. Should I cancel tickets?

    well, i am mexican, living for now in Scotland, and will travel to mexico next week... i have been talking with all family and friends about the swine flu and they say is not as bad as news says, obviously you have to be careful and be very hygenic... cancun is one of the places that is not impacted with the virus, the main is in the city and the round about... they are putting few doctors @ some airports and ppl has been very careful using masks, so if you are going to cancun you still can enjoy the beach and the sun and the weather just be careful... Cancun still not marked as a dangerous zone and is miles away from Mexico city... and as i said just have to be careful the same as if there were no viruses =D

    We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children) Travelling to the River Maya Mexico on the 25th May for 2 weeks.
    I asume the WHO Organisation will suspend flights to mexico if the Swine Flu becomes a pandedmic? Otherwise we will be travelling and will take precautionary measures of washing hands, drinking bottled water etc....
    Hopefully this will be contained and people will receive treatment quickly without more families losing their loved ones. It is very worrying my 9 year old does not want to travel due to the media response.

    Hi I'm getting married in August and my soon to be husband and I will travel to Cancun Mexico for our honeymoon. Do you think that it will be safe for us to travel to Cancun Mexico in August? or should we cancel our reservations and go to the Bahamas instead?
  • edited 8:22PM
    Im in the same situation. We are due to go to Mexico in August and dont know whether to chance it and keep this booking or to rebook another holiday elsewhere. Thomsons want £35 per person to do this, which I think is a bit unfair considering the unusual circumstances.

    It is a flu, it has now spread to every country. Remember that Mexico does not have the same medical as other countries. There are thousands of people that die from the regular flu every year and thousands that die from a common cold but no one seems to be alarmed by that. The reason I believe that airlines suspended flights to Mexico is because they are giving most people a credit to rebook, but they also raised their prices and so now if you rebook you have to pay more. If your going to go to Mexico the airlines are suppose to be back in the air to Mexico by June 1st. I treat it like any other flu be aware of who your around and that it was mostly in Mexico city and there are millions of people that live in that city and a small percentage got the flu. The reason why it is a pandemic is because it has gone to different levels meaning each level it gets to another country has encountered the flu. They believe it will hit many people before it stops around the world and that it is not the same strength as it was many years ago when it was taking many peoples lives. If your still unsure about going talk to your travel agent but they don't seem too concerned as it is in many countries now and you can pretty much get in anywhere. They also said that a lab testing people might have started spreading it too. Don't hide do what you think is best for you and hope that no one else loses their life from this. Mostly week immune systems which are the young and elderly are at risk. And if you do get it treat it like any other flu they are saying lots of fluids and rest not many people in Canada have been hospitalized but I believe there has been one death here in Canada. Hope for the best and hope everyone that has it recovers nicely from it.

    Me and my fiance have booked our trip to cancun since february. My parents say we shouldn't go, but then other people say it's perfectly fine.But it's too expensive to go anywhere else at the moment...unless you know somewhere equally as expensive as cancun. I would like to know...should we cancel or just go?

    It's safe to trvel to Mexico. Drug issues are a major worry in some areas since it envolves violence (guns) ins publica places, but it mostly relates to 'inner mafia' vendettas.
    Mexico is a great place to spend vacation.
    If in need of travel suggestions and personlized guidance, please contact me.
    Based in Mexico City but available for the whole country.
