CDC says its Safe to Travel to Mexico

CDC says its Safe to Travel to Mexico

CDC has removed its recommendation that U.S. travelers avoid travel to Mexico because of the H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus. The previous health warning has been downgraded to a Health precaution.

Taken from the CDC site:
CDC recommends that travelers at high risk for complications from any form of influenza discuss with their physicians the risks and benefits of travel in the context of their planned itinerary to Mexico, and may want to consider postponing travel. Travelers at high risk for complications include:

Children less than 5 years old
Persons aged 65 years or older
Children and adolescents (less than 18 years) who are receiving long-term aspirin therapy and who might be at risk for experiencing Reye syndrome after influenza virus infection
Pregnant women
Adults and children who have chronic pulmonary, cardiovascular, hepatic, hematological, neurologic, neuromuscular, or metabolic disorders
Adults and children who have immunosuppression (including immunosuppression caused by medications or by HIV)
Residents of nursing homes and other chronic-care facilities

In addition Carnival cruiselines announced they are returning to their original Mexico itineraries as early as the end of May based on the CDC recommendations.
Expect the other major cruiselines to follow suit!

Read more from the CDC here.

Now that the warning has been lifted, and CDC says its safe to travel to Mexico I expect prices of cruises, resorts, and tours to plummet, making some good Vacation options for bargain hungry travelers!

Its great to see things are getting better for Mexico.
