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.
