Two days into Crystal Vaccaro and Rob Baer’s spontaneous Mexico getaway, the trip took a turn for the worse. After a relaxing lunch at the all-inclusive resort and a stroll on the beach, Baer stopped, pivoted toward the closest potted plant and vomited. They hadn’t been drinking.
Back in their room, Vaccaro followed suit. Then came diarrhea for both. (And there was only one toilet.) Needless to say, “it was a real intimate moment,” laughs Vaccaro, a 28-year-old in Denver who works for a captioned telephone company.
