Historically a popular destination for American college students during Spring Break – Cancun has become a favourite destination for UK holidaymakers. In addition to the climate and extensive beach, the resort has an array of all-inclusive accommodation. Whilst most of this accommodation is of a high standard, lapses in hygiene practices, food preparation standards or cleanliness may lead to outbreaks of infectious diseases due to salmonella, campylobacter, cryptosporidium, giardia or E.coli food poisoning.
If you have been to Mexico on a package holiday and have suffered from sickness then you may be entitled to compensation if your hotel was to blame for the illness. If food was not always hot, if food was not stored at correct temperatures, if plates, glasses and cutlery were dirty, if swimming pools were not sufficiently cleaned or if food handlers allowed cross contamination of food to occur then it may be that the hotel caused your illness.
