Has there been any issues with the Swine Flu being as close to Mexico as Belize is? As a visitor, should I prepare by getting any vaccinations(for anything, not just Swine Flu)or is that even necessary?

Thanks all for the help you provide!!

lv2trvl, I am interested in the answer to your question and have wondered the same for longer term visits. Dengue Fever? Swine Flu is not a concern as of yet to me. I just returned from a week in Mexico and it wasn't much of a concern where I was. (Playa del Carmen) Except for a very few people at the airport with face masks when we departed and TV you would have never known anything was going on.

Maybe in a few days I'll feel differently about the Flu but it appears an over-reaction to me except in Mexico City.

So far no swine flu in Belize. Early test of potential cases have come back negative. Dengue is rare but it does happen. It is treatable and lasts about 2 weeks.

Belize is one of the healthiest places I've ever been.
Greatest risks - sunburn, hangovers and bad cases of "homesick for Belize" about 2 hours after your vacation ends.
