Hello! Just wondering if Zika is still a concern for people traveling to Caye Caulker? I really want to go there this February, but my husband and I are trying to get pregnant, too. Thanks!
Last I read CDC is recommending waiting for six months after a visit to a zika area to try and become pregnant.
Speak with your physician.
I would request more recent figures and for the time of yr you plan to visit. Perhaps you plan to visit during the dry season.
I've tried finding newer info and can't seem to find any. I was wanting to travel there in February.
If I become pregnant, is this something I should overlook and still go? Or is this a real health scare that I should be concerned about and alter my travel plans?
You need to speak with your physician. I have spent the past seven or eight winters in Belize. Some years virtually no mosquitoes, other years, there have been quite a few.
The mosquito that carries zika lives in Belize.
Please, please, speak with your physican. And, read the CDC information.
