Health Risks in the Caribbean- Dengue, Parasites....

Jump to last reply

I compared the "health risks" that Lonely Planet lists for several Caribbean destinations. I have copied them below and would appreciate comments. I was shocked that they list "None" for Jamaica, esp. in light of what they list for the others.

____________

Anguilla and Antigua and Barbuda: "Sunburn, diarrhea and intestinal parasites"

Aruba: "Sunburn"

Barbados: "Dengue fever, diarrhea and intestinal parasites; leptospirosis can be present in freshwater streams"

British Virgin Islands: "Sunburn, dengue fever"

[I note that in the past, they listed only sunburn for the BVI]

Cayman Islands: "Sunburn, poisonous plants"

Jamaica: "None" [??!!]

Puerto Rico: "Sunburn, small risk of hepatitis and bilharzia, being subject to repeated explosions over 190 decibels near the Vieques military training facility"

____________

Thank you for any replies.
