The colloquial term for any cases of traveler's diarrhea contracted by tourists visiting Mexico. The name humorously refers to Moctezuma II, the ruler of the Aztec civilization who was defeated and slaughtered by Hernán Cortés, the Spanish conquistador. The white Spainiards would then continue to enslave or obliterate the Aztec people.
It is said that whenever a white person has diarrhea while visiting Mexico, he is suffering the wrath of Montezuma's revenge.

Also known as Moctezuma's Revenge, the correct, authentic meaning of "Montezuma's Revenge" regards the effects produced by the seasoned spicy Mexican food on foreigners, ranging from the effect of an unaccustomed, non connoisseur palate to chilli, to the stomachal consequences caused by the Mexican food. It has nothing to do with the concept of a developed country versus a developing country and not with their hygienic habits. The latter two terms are derogatory and rather seek to disqualify.

"Montezuma's Revenge" is not a disease. It is a "bad moment" that happens when a foreigner has never tasted chili or spicy food.

Its origin comes from Moctezuma, the mexica emperor who met the spaniards, as he now gets revenge on the foreigners (mainly whites, because spaniards are white) for destroying his people.

Reaction caused by eating extreme quantities of spicy food.

Its origin comes when Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés entered the Mexicas' capital city: Tenoctitlán, he was beleived to be the god Quetzalcóatl (the mexicas had a toltec legend about a priest called Ce Acatl Topiltzin Quetzalcóatl, who fled eastward and vowed to return archaeological evidence suggests he fled to Chichén Itzá), who was said to be "tall, white and bearded". Cortés entered the city and was met by emperor Moctezuma "the young", who offered a meal in his honor. Having never tasted the local food, he eventually threw up and that's how the term came to be.
