Deadly swine flu virus in Mexico

Recommended Posts

I'm so glad you girls had amazing weddings! Last year when Dreams tulum closed many of the girls had to switch resorts and everything turned out great, some said better than what they had originally planned at Dreams tulum. So much can be done in a matter of days!

 

Has anyone seen the new travel mexico commercials? I love it! It goes into how they have overcome swine and WHO and CDC have recognized this and welcome back to mexico!

We returned from 16 days in Mexico (Riviera Maya / Playa del Carmen) with no problems at all. We mostly stayed on the resort, but we went to Coco Bongo in Playa one night for our Bach party, some of our guests went to Playa during the day for shopping, and Cozumel. Everything is normal and safe. The airport they are doing health screenings taking your temperature and filling out a questionairre. Nice because customs is super fast! For anyone that has traveled during peak season, you know that customs in Cancun can take over an hour, and this time there was zero wait time! Nobody is in masks or sick or anything. So, happy planning and have fun!! :)

I also just returned and everything was fine (well except for the crushed economy, loss of jobs, etc. that our media has caused).

 

Resorts are super low on guest-nice because it is like you have your own resort-sad because so many people have been laid off.

 

Customs, NEVER stood in a line...how crazy. On the way we walked thru a thermo stan-most don't even realize it is happening. On the way home they actually did a forehead temp. check. Very quick questionaire each time.

 

We were their for 10 days, when to playa twice, once for shopping, once for an excursion. We also went into Cancun for an excursion.

 

 

Right before we left all the travel people begged us to please take a second and go to trip advisor and let people know it is safe to travel to Mexico.

I know many of us don't even want to hear those two words, but is anyone concerend about their wedding and the swine flu. I'm from Jersey and we hear alot of it happening and in NYC, but the news hasn't said anymore information about Mexico. What have your guests said, anyone canceling.

 

Concerend Bride,

Diane

i've got a very worry-some family...always wondering about the drug wars they hear about and the swine flu nonsense. Don't worry...I told them if it was a serious problem, more serious actions would be taken to cancel flights and close resorts. 36,000 people die from the normal flu every year as it is. It was an overblown media event. My wedding is in September and I'm going whether there's a flu, a hurricane or a swarm of locusts (or mosquitos in the case of Mexico).

I think you and your guests have a better chance of getting swine flu in NJ then in Mexico today in the Daily Record a little boy age 10 from Sussex County died at Morristown Memorial (so sad) and New Jersey has had 415 confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza in 19 counties. An additional 252 probable cases are pending testing in the state lab. Here is the link: 10-year-old boy dies in Morristown | dailyrecord.com | Daily Record

Not at all worried. It's more prevalent in Toronto than in Tulum, where we are heading in 2 days :-) Our guests are reasonable too, which helps. No one has freaked out nor threatened to back out, even when all of this craze broke loose in April/May :-)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
