          We potentially could set something up through our Kids Club. We have bi-lingual staff that should be able to facilitate that for you. Once you confirm your reservation, please ask to connect with Kara.
          I'd like to know if it's common for people to get sick from the food/water there? I'd like to visit, but I'm afraid of that. Are there medical facilities nearby?
