    Has anyone heard anything about this in Cancun? It seems all over that region of the world but have heard nothing about it in Cancun. And on the flip........we've never really had issues with mosquitoes in Cancun.


    Thoughts and ideas anyone?

    Not really much fuss about it here. There's only a risk if you are pregnant, most don't even know they have it. Dengue Fever is far more dangerous.

    So far there have been 121 confirmed cases in the whole of Mexico, and 107 in the whole of the US.

    Me and my wife were quite concerned and almost decided not to go to Mexico. After doing some research and talking to a physician we determined that the risk was minimal and almost non existent. What I can also tell you is that the hotel staff do a great job, I'm guessing with sprays, of limiting insect and bugs at the resort. I was out late every night for the entire week and did not get a single mosquito bite. I hope that helps.

    Thanks for the update we heard the news reports here and of course they expand everything like crazy to the point you'd think you better stay indoors. Probably have a better chance of someone spilling a drink on you than getting Zika
