Hi Becky,

Regarding the prevention of 'turista', you can take a preventative dose of Pepto Bismol daily and eat a lot of limes. Every time we've visited Mexico, we're always served dishes of limes with our beer or water. A waiter once touted the virtures of the limes for the prevention of stomach problems, and I think there might be something to it!

Of course, you already know about bottled water. Also, don't eat any raw fruit or veggies, unless they have been peeled or cooked. The water used for irrigation is often questionable, so the exterior of the crops may contain harmful bacteria. Obviously, salad may not be your best choice.

Ciao, Kristy S.F.
