Hi! We will be sailing to Costa Rica (Puerto Limon) and Panama (Colon) on Celebrity Millennium in May. Checking the CDC web site, it seems those countries present risk of getting Malaria. Should we taking medication prior to going? The CDC's web site seems to indicate the areas we'll be visit are safe but I am not sure. Thanks in advance for any information. Nicolas
I traveled to Thailand about 10 years ago without getting any of my shots.... boy was that a mistake. I was pretty health before then- rarely got sick. When i got back from Thailand i was sick with a 104 degree fever for a week. Then i got sick like that about 5 times a year and on all holidays. It was bad. I don't get that sick anymore. No doctor could really tell me what happened. I would definately check with your doctor and at the US passport agency to see what shots are recommended. Also try searching teoma.com for information on traveling overseas esp in those countries.
