    Yes, unfortunately there are bugs on the island.
    The amount of mosquitos is dependent upon the amount of rain.
    The past few months the island has received abnormally high amounts of rain.

    Things have begun drying up now that rainy season is on it's last legs.

    Having said that, no matter what time of year we travel to Aruba, to be on the safe side, we always pack a "travel size" can of OFF! with Deet. We used it this year for the first time in 3 years.

    You know I think bugs are attracted to some people and not others. We last went down in Sept-Oct and all I kept reading on the forums were how bad the bugs were. I dutifully brought my bug repellent with me and never had to open it. We've been going down at least yearly since 1989 and never had a problem with bugs. Now watch, I just jinxed myself and next month's trip will be full of the little buggers!
