A Message About Travel to Mexico
Posted May 26, 2009
As of May 15, 2009, both the CDC and the U.S. State Department have downgraded their alerts with respect to travel to Mexico, now minimizing their focus to alert individuals at risk. Comments from the CDC Travel Health Precaution statement ([url]http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/content/travel-health-precaution/novel-h1n1-flu-mexico.aspx[/url]) state "...the risk of severe disease from novel H1N1 virus infection now appears to be less than originally thought."

The U.S. State Department Travel Alert ([url]http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_3028.html[/url]) as of this afternoon now informs "The Department of State wishes to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and residing in Mexico that on May 15 2009, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lifted its recommendation that American citizens avoid all nonessential travel to Mexico. As a result of the CDC's decision, the State Department's Travel Alert relating to the 2009-H1N1 influenza outbreak is no longer in effect."

People who have ensured long flights are given a complimentary neck and shoulder massage and guests lounging by the pool are offered complimentary treats every 30-minutes. Guests also have access to daily yoga classes and spa guests receive a custom blended Aguas Frescas following their treatment. Pets are also pampered with custom dog beds dressed in fine Italian linens and a pet room service menu.
