We are planning a trip to Belize and wondered if parasites are a problem on fresh fruits and veggies. I gained a lot of weight last year in Mexico because we couldnt eat salads only beans and tacos, pizza and cooked veggies. Is it the same in Belize or is there something I can soak lettuce and tomatoes in before eating them? What do you folks that live in Belize suggest? Thanks.

I've never heard of any problems here on Ambergris Caye. I buy locally and don't do any special prep on fruits and veggies. And I eat in all the restaurants, fast food places and street vendors and have never had a problem.

Never had a problem here. Do have a problem back in the States -think it is some presevitive they use on Salad.

Know what you mean about Mexico, only place I ever got sick, 4 guys in one room & we all had the same problem.
Never had a problem in S.P. in 20+ trips.
Don't know about the Mainland because I've never been there, having too much fun in San Pedro!

Not too big of a problem here. Just wash all your fruits and veggies before consuming as you do back home.

You should wash them in water with a little clorox mixed in.

Clorox must be a Texas thing. We don't do that here on Ambergris Caye...and no one gets sick!

Clorox is just a preventative thing. I've never had a problem either.


I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

My mother would put a tablespoon of clorox in my bathwater when I was a little girl (had a lot of scrapes) for disinfectant purposes.

Oh, guess what Jesse, I think you are mistaken. Why not ask Charlene, she washes lime, lettuce, celery and even glasses with the clorox mixture. Ive watched them do it.
