Ok, our trip to playa del carmen is in one week, with all the media I am a little worried. Has anyone heard differently if we should cancel or plans or stick with them? report a problem

The Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Travel Health Warning recommending avoidance of non-essential travel to Mexico was downgraded to a Travel Health Precaution on Friday, May 15. Time has allowed for a more complete picture that shows the outbreak is slowing down in most cities in Mexico. Another factor is the increase in the US of cases not associated with travel to Mexico. Finally, the risk of severe disease from this virus is now thought to be less than originally thought. As with any flu, it is recommended to take precautions to remain healthy including washing your hands frequently. Sneeze and cough into your elbow instead of your hand and avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth. For more info check out the CDC website: http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/content/travel-health-precaution/novel-h1n1-flu-mexico.aspx Another tip. If you booked your travel a while ago, you may want to check current rates as they may be lower and you may qualify for the new rates. For air, some airlines will allow you to reissue the ticket at new lower fare and receive a credit for remaining balance after they first deduct the penalty. Airline rules vary, so check with your carrier. If you are staying in a hotel, unless you have a pre-paid non-refundable rate, you may be able to lock in a lower rate. Good luck and have fun!
