Cyclospora Outbreak in Mexican Resorts Prompts Action from Holiday Claims Bureau
Holidaymakers planning a trip to Mexico should be aware of the increasing number of Cyclospora cases reported among travellers. The Holiday Claims Bureau has received Cyclospora holiday illness claims from guests who fell ill during their stays at RIU Tequila and Royalton Splash Riviera resorts in Cancun, June 2023. These incidents have raised concerns about the safety of travellers in the region.
Cyclospora is an illness caused by ingesting food or water contaminated with the Cyclospora parasite. To minimise the risk of infection, travellers are advised to practise good food and water hygiene. This advice applies to all types of accommodations, including high-end, all-inclusive resorts.
Travellers should ensure the food they are consuming is washed in treated water or thoroughly cooked. It is also crucial to use only bottled or treated water for drinking and oral hygiene. Ice in drinks should be avoided unless it comes from a trusted water source.
Symptoms of Cyclospora infection typically start with a flu-like illness and are followed by gastrointestinal issues such as:
- Watery diarrhoea
- Muscle pain
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Abdominal bloating
Travellers who experience these symptoms after returning from Mexico should seek medical attention and contact their general practitioner for further assessment and management.
