Do you currently have a crack? Or are you expecting one in the future?

If you install ceramic or mexican tile on a floor and it cracks, there is a reason.

Please give us more details. Bill

unfortunately, I don't think it was installed properly in the first place. I have a long crack through a few tiles which has remained stable for a few years- I am so aggravated by it I am tempted to rip the floor up, but I understand that would be a tremendous mess. If I could minimize its appearance, tjat would be great. Thanks

Are the tiles installed on a concrete slab or a wood floor system?

In order to offer information you need to give as much information as possible.

unfortunately wood, which is the problem I am sure. We didn't install them, they were there when we purchased the house

Try a colored wood filler putty that matches the tile.. It will make the crack less obvisous.
