mrsmckkay :  I was staying in Playa del Carmen- which is very close to Cancun.  I wore bug spray when we did a trip to visit Chichen itza in the jungle but I didn’t wear any spray when we were on the resort at the night (I wasn’t really thinking about it).  I wouldn’t recommend anyone going who want’s to TTC in the near future because obviously the risk is pretty high there but if you are really good about wearing bug spray all day every day then your risk is probably a lot lower.

lori85 :  I wasn in Playa del Carmen (close to Cancun) and I know I had it because I broke out in a head to toe rash and fever.  I went to the doctor who said it’s probably Zika due to my recent travel and he sent off a blood test which was positive for Zika.

mrsmckkay :  low grade fever, rash that started on my medsection and spread over my entire body within a few days (I looked horrible and pretty much couldn’t go out in public).  Joint pain, fatigue.
