    Bugs?

    Just wondering about bugs on the island... You know... the relentless, carniverous kind! I'm used to more plush caribbean destinations and wondered if the desert environment would minimize major bug problems?

    Bugs not bad at the moment

    Hi

    No rain, so no mosquitoes. A few small sand flies. Nothing else. Only get's bad if a hurricane passes close by.

    No - there are mosquitoes around - don't kid yourself. They find
    my husband and a friend very tasty and they are getting bitten.
    So if you are "one of those tasty" people - bring some bug spray.

    Also depends where you are on the island - near a mangrove?
    Bring the spray. Actually - bring something purse sized because
    you never know where those little buggers like to hang out!
