I've read that Lyme disease is in Mexico, but I can't find any information on where. Does anyone know what parts of Mexico are affected? Thanks in advance.

Lyme is a tick borne disease and we have several varies of ticks here. Our, and our dogs, encounters have been minimal over the past 3 years but we also ensure our dogs have been given appropriate medication for ticks. We don't go wandering thru fields or rolling on the lawn and check the dogs carefully after walks. The ticks can be very small (think head of a pin) and are on wildlife so.... That being said it will soon be tick season.

Yes but all ticks do not carry lyme disease thank God. In California the ticks from the deers were really bad , I do not know how many times we came back covered with ticks from simple walks in the woods and had to get the ticks checked for lyme disease. Here they are not that bad and I have not heard of anyone with lyme disease but who knows..

More in depth info ^^^^

Four patients who had received tick bites while visiting forests in Mexico had skin lesions that met the case definition of erythema migrans, or borrelial lymphocytoma. Clinical diagnosis was supported with histologic, serologic, and molecular tests. This study suggests the Borrelia burgdorferi infection is in Mexico.

From June 1999 to October 2000, 4 patients in Mexico City had clinical manifestations suggestive of Lyme disease (5,6). Two (36 and 54 years of age) had erythema migrans lesions, and 2 (9 and 34 years of age) had borrelial lymphocytoma lesions. Two reported having been bitten by a hard tick; the other 2, by a nonflying insect. Bites occurred while camping in forests: 3 near Mexico City (National Park La Marquesa) and 1 in Quintana Roo, a southern state in Mexico. All patients lived in Mexico City and had never traveled outside Mexico.
