Tourists are being offered free holidays for three years if they catch swine flu on Mexico's Caribbean coast in a bid to lure business back to the country.

The outbreak of the H1N1 virus has killed 63 people worldwide and sparked fears of a global pandemic - as well as seriously denting tourism to the region.


As a result of dwindling tourism, a group of three hotel chains located on Mexico's Caribbean coast - Real Resorts, Dreams and Secrets, offering a total of 5,000 rooms - have made the bold move.

Fernando Garcia, director of Real Resorts said: 'The 'flu-free guarantee' assures three years of free holidays to travellers who present flu symptoms eight days after returning from their trip.

It sounds like Cancun is getting hurt badly by the H1N1 hysteria. How badly has it hurt AC?
God Bless The Reef!

Actually we are getting a number of tourists that cancelled Mexico and came to AC. Between the drug cartel violence and the swine flu, Mexico has taken it on the chin. On the other hand, the swine flu scare is only making a most difficult situation, the global economic meltdown and its effect on tourism, worse.
