From beautiful beaches to fascinating relics of the ancient Mayan civilization, you can find it all in Mexico. Every year, millions of tourists visit Mexico to enjoy a relaxing break or go on an exciting adventure holiday.
Regardless of whether you are planning on relaxing on the beach or scaling the volcanos, it is important that you stay safe during your trip. All travellers going to Mexico should get vaccinated for hepatitis A and typhoid. Depending on what your plans are, you may also need additional immunisation for rabies and tetanus – make sure you speak to a travel nurse at least six weeks before your trip to discuss your needs.
In certain parts of Mexico, malaria prevention is also required.
As with all destinations, it is essential that you see a travel nurse or pharmacist at least 6 – 8 weeks before you travel.
Mexico is a risk country for dengue fever, which is caused by a virus. It typically causes severe joint and muscle pains as well as a high fever. The best way to protect yourself from dengue fever is by avoiding mosquito bites, as the virus is transmitted by mosquitoes.
