|Subject: Re: Mayan Riviera|
In addition to avoiding raw foods and local water, I would add looking out for ANY foods that have not been THOROUGHLY cooked and are VERY hot. I had a bowl of chicken soup at a local restaurant, thinking that would be safe--and proceeded to see many of the local restrooms between Mexico and Denver! It lasted for more than a week. I should only have written a guidebook to the best of them.
I also recommend using bottled water for brushing one's teeth.
