@deecol This is what has been floating around the Azul Fives Brides lately re: Zika Virus (not sure what the source of this is though):
Zika virus hasn't been found in Quintana Roo (the state in which Riviera Maya and Cancun is located). More info: In Late 2015, 2 cases of “Zika Virus” infection were identified in the country of Mexico. The cases were found in a resident of Nuevo León, located over 2000 km (1,242 miles) away from Quintana Roo and in Chiapas, located over 1100km (683) away from Quintana Roo.
We can confirm that there has not been any other case reported elsewhere in Mexico. Cancun, the Riviera Maya and the State of Quintana Roo remain free from the “Zika Virus”.
All our hotels in Riviera Maya make every effort to eliminate and control the mosquito; we follow preventative measures set by the WHO and CDC as well as the local governing body. We have a full fumigation program that has been in place and proved successful for many years; this includes daily, weekly and monthly fumigation tasks in public areas of the hotel, guest rooms and facilities. In addition mosquito repellent is ready available throughout all restaurants and bars, and for our guest comfort and wellbeing all guests’ rooms are air conditioned as well as the many of the public areas and facilities within the resorts.
