Any concerns with beach water and activities?

Recommended Posts

I asked this on the snorkel forum but got no responses, so will try here. I think more visibility on this site.

 

We are going to Cozumel, Jamaica and Grand Cayman out of Galveston on Sunday 9/24.

 

I've always taken my snorkel gear to the Caribbean before, but wondering what fall-out if any (bacteria and just stuff) would be a cause for concern. With so much washing out to sea from the Hurricanes, I just don't want to put myself in harms way. No one in my group is medically compromised, but still.....

 

Thoughts?

We were at Cozumel twice on our Sept 3rd Allure cruise.

Water and beaches were very clean, Cozumel is a long ways from Harvey, Irma, Jose and Marie

There is way more stuff washing into the beaches from non-existent, open or malfunctioning sewers than washed onto the beach from the hurricanes.
