Palma is the capital city of Majorca and provides many holiday makers each year with a low tempo, relaxing beach holiday, with the addition of all the amenities of a city. Visitors to Palma are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the kind of holiday experience they would like from their trip. However, many holiday makers visiting the city do not get to experience all it has to offer as they can too often fall victim to unacceptable and avoidable holiday illness.
Although many hotels in Palma can claim to offer good standards of safety and hygiene, there are still unfortunate cases of illness reported.
Although all holiday makers visiting Palma are advised to drink only bottled water, poorly maintained swimming pools can also lead to serious stomach illness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium. Avoid foods not cooked thoroughly and/or re-heated incorrectly.
Suffering from illness on an all-inclusive holiday to Palma will obviously affect your health but can also leave holidaymakers out of pocket from costly medical treatment.
- Avoid foods not prepared hygienically.
- Avoid food not stored at the correct temperature.
- Frequently use an alcohol-based hand gel.
- Avoid street food.
- Avoid salads and any uncooked fruits and vegetables (these may have been handled unhygienically)
