Former guests of Riviera Maya resorts turn to Your Holiday Claims following their devastated holidays
A number of British holidaymakers have contacted us to seek expert legal advice, after cases of the infection Cyclospora ruined their hard-earned holidays.
Cyclospora is a bowel infection which is caused by a miniscule parasite (Cyclospora Cayeteninsis), which is mainly caught by consuming fruit and vegetables that have been contaminated with human faeces.
The infections most common symptom is severe diarrhoea, but other symptoms such as weight loss, stomach cramps, bloating, exhaustion and nausea can also occur.
If you feel like you may have contracted Cyclospora on holiday it is important that you notify your tour operator so they can record the illness, and that you seek medical attention to receive the correct treatment for your recovery.
The parasite is reported to be rife in a number of different hotels located in the Riviera Maya area of Mexico, including:
- Sensimar Seaside Suites (formally El Dorado Seaside Suites)
- Azul Sensatori
- Royalton Riviera Maya
- Catalonia Riviera Maya and Spa
- Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya
Unfortunately, the recent cases of Cyclospora outbreaks in the Riviera Maya are not a one off. Only last year we were notified by holidaymakers staying at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort and the Sensatori Resort that outbreaks of the infection were present, and subsequently spoiling holidays.
In addition to this, in the same year the national press also revealed that an unnerving 79 cases of the parasite had been reported at the Catalonia Riviera Maya Resort and Spa.
In light of the emerging reports of Cyclospora outbreaks in the Riviera Maya region, PHE (Public Health England) have released a statement to instruct holidaymakers who are at risk of the infection.
The statement advises holidaymakers travelling to the region to maintain a high standard of food, water and personal hygiene as investigations into the source of the outbreak remain ongoing.
Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law here at Your Holiday Claims commented: “We are currently helping a number of ill-stricken U.K holidaymakers pursue a no win no fee Cyclospora holiday illness claim.
“We are conscious of just how distressing suffering from an illness such as Cyclospora can be on holiday, and we are here to help anyone who has had to go through an ordeal such as this”.
Anne finished by saying: “I strongly advise anyone who has suffered from the above illness symptoms within the last three years on their package holiday to contact either myself, or the dedicated team at Your Holiday Claims for expert advice. We are only a phone call or click away”.
