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.
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!
