Fresh Vegetables And Fruit, Safe To Eat In Mexico?

Recommended Posts

I've ate off of sketchy buffets many many times all over the Yucatan Peninsula for the last 12 years and never gotten sick.

Once at a 5 star, I got sick twice.

Go figure! Odds are in your favor!!

I've only got an upset stomach from eating mangos in excess in Mexico. Stay up to date on your hepatitis shots and you should be fine less Montezuma revenge.  :)

I have been to the Mayan Riviera area many times and have never had a problem with eating fresh fruits or vegetables - salad, guac, papaya, tomato, etc.  I always use bottled water to brush my teeth and try hard to never get water in my mouth while showering.

I've been to Mexico maybe five times, specifically Grand Oasis 4x. I've been okay4/5x and had been careful each round. I honestly dont know what happened differently the one time where I got sick. I do have to say - it was unpleasant. I wanted to throw up, or go to the bathroom but neither was happening. Just terrible stomach twisting cramps all night long. Once you've experienced it once you become extra wary. That was my second visit though and clearly didn't stop me from going back.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
