One guest already posted a warning on his facebook page... come on, don't need to scare people. He did take it down though when we asked, we leave in 20 days dont need a bunch of fearful guests. I'm sure there would be a much stricter warning if it was a serious threat to tourists.
I had a guest calling/txting me FREAKING out over the "drug war" issue in MX, saying she had 3 friends who had already cancelled their trips to MX. Aye yi yi... had to deal with that and now this?!
I think there is another thread on BDW about this and I read that earlier... well, my Grandma called about 15 mins later saying "have you heard the news?". I thought "uh oh, someone's either preggo or sick..." so I said "is it good or bad?" and she said "bad" and then just paused for like 5 seconds (scared the sh!t outta me! LOL). then she told me about this mexican swine flu... thank goodness i'd just read about it on here, and was able to tell her it actually started (they think) in the southern U.S., and apparently CA is is experiencing issues too.. so, basically you could also get sick if you stayed home. (Maybe not that simple, but...) Sounds like it's confined right now to Mexico D.F. (Mexico City). I'm getting married 1 mo. from today in PV, and looked it up and it's about 800+km away from there.
SERIOUSLY hope my guests do NOT start freaking out about this one too!!! ARGH!!!
Just be smart like you would at home ~ like someone else said, wash your hands, try to avoid germs as much as possible, etc... If there was a huge epidemic they would severely warn against travel to MX, IMO!
