    It was such a drag! We were both ill, like really ill to the point we needed anti-biotics from the Pharmacy accross the road, but they did the trick...shame we only found out you could buy them over the counter after being sick 5 days huh...! This time for sure, will be better! :)

    Ok, not going to go on a complete professional rant here but - please, please. please DO NOT self medicate with antibiotics. We can't, as we can't buy them over the counter - thank goodness - how many people take antibiotics for viral infections? Useless. How do you know what bacteria is causing your infection, and what antibiotic will be effective? And this over and misuse is the very reason that we are now in the global situation of muti-resistant organisms causing widespread infections issues (MRSA, VRE etc) and one day, soon, any antibiotics we do have will be useless. STOP IT!

    (Tequila please!):daisy:

    YES!!!! GoGoBLANCO!!!!!!! You go girl!!! (Your name is especially fitting for this post!)

    The only time it is typically recommended to take an antibiotic in preparation for travel is when you are traveling into an area affected by Malaria....TTR / Cancun is NOT in a malaria area. Most illnesses at the resort are viral and antibiotics will not help. Take some meds with you that can treat symptoms and most importantly....WASH YOUR HANDS!!! Most healthy people do not need to take antibiotics with them. If you have a chronic condition or take medications which affect your ability to fight infection, you should discuss your travel with your physician prior to your departure and follow his/her advice.

    Some things that are a good idea to pack: hydrocortisone cream (for bites/itching), anti-fungal cream (for athletes foot/jock itch), triple antibiotic ointment (for cuts/scrapes), bandaids, Imodium or Pepto (for diarrhea), benadryl (for allergic reactions), Tylenol or similar (for fever or pain), your favorite cold symptom medicine, and aloe (for sunburn).

    Just my two cents! ;)

    We were there in Nov and last week in March. I don't usually get a cold but these last two trips I got a MAJOR chest infection too. Heavy antibiotics and puffer for weeks to clear it up. Had to be something there. I blame the AC ducts too. God only knows what lives in there!

    You quoted my post !! My post told that Cypro is a bad drug. I said nothing about bringing antibiotics. I think too many times Drs. listen to drug companies sales pitches and push bad drugs on unsuspecting patients.

    They need rainbow shots mixed with body shots !

    When people have chronic lung condition such as asthma or COPD they are more prone to develop SECONDARY bacterial infections following a common viral illness. Then, it is recommended that they carry and use antibiotics if/when they have had the appropriate guidance for this. Otherwise I totally agree that we shouldn't be using antibiotics for every illness.

    We are headed into an era where antibiotics are no longer going to work due to resistance. Then sadly we will be seeing people dying of illnesses that were recently easily treated.

    I probably have good immunity cause I work around sick people all the time but I stand by my two tablets of vitamin C daily and I always bring them to cancun. I may forget to take other meds but never my vitamin C. Since bringing it to Cancun I also have not lost my voice. Yeah no more squeaky MO.

    We're still here and I have it too. Although mine doesn't sound as bad. It started as a really sore throat for about two days and now I'm just coughing up stuff a lot, especially when I'm in the room and after I've been lying down. I have to turn off the AC at night or my throat starts to hurt again. My husband has been fine. It's very weird.

    One year I arrived with a pretty bad chest/head cold. I highly recommend the "Mexican Cough Syrup" served at the Paty'O Bar. Those guys are practically doctors.
