The U.S. State Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lifted their warnings against nonessential trips to Mexico on Friday. According to the CDC website: "There is evidence that the Mexican outbreak of H1N1 (swine) flu is slowing down in many cities ... In addition, the United States and other countries are now seeing increasing numbers of cases not associated with travel to Mexico." Similarly, in the U.K, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has lifted a ban on all but essential travel to Mexico following the swine flu outbreak, and advises: “Following a decline in the number of reported new swine influenza cases in Mexico since its peak on 26 April 2009, we no longer advise against all but essential travel.”
So, if you're in good health, and are looking for a recession-busting vacation getaway, it's a great time for a trip to Mexico, where you'll find friendly, welcoming people, beautiful sites, rich history, wonderful shopping, affordable prices, and delightful B&Bs.
