Mexican authorities said Tuesday that several of their country’s best-known tourism spots are free of swine flu, as they scrambled to limit damage to the all-important travel industry due to the outbreak.
Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova said five top beach areas — Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, Mazatlan, Zihuatanejo and Cozumel — have not registered any confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus.
Tourist destinations are safe in Mexico,” Cordova said. “People can come back with complete peace of mind. It is being monitored very intensively.”
