    Let's talk Tradewinds.........or the lack thereof

    There is a LOW north-northeast of Aruba.
    LOWS and other disturbances to the north of Aruba suck.
    Those water disturbances suck away Aruba's Tradewinds.

    Stay cool if you are there now.Let's talk Tradewinds.........or the lack thereof-screen-shot-2019-09-18-5-52-35-pm-jpg

    When the breeze is gone I get eaten by the mosquitoes. Even with spray I'll get some bites. My balcony at Divi is behind some trees above some hedge and other plants so I imagine that is why I'm more susceptible than my friend who stays at Riu. Hoping for good strong breezes over the next couple of weeks

    we pack with us a 3 wick citronella candle.
    it helps to a certain extent.
    when we stay at Bananas or Sunset Beach Studios there is also green foliage and that provides housing and camouflage for the mosquitos.

    try taking a citronella candle and there is also a think we took last year that worked well....it was a green coil shaped thing that gets lit on the end and sends off a anti mosquito smell. https://www.amazon.com/Mosquito-Repe...8&sr=8-30&th=1
    when there is no breeze, being in the ocean or the pool is the only answer.

    Yes, it is very hot and a little to no wind at all. The water is very nice and warm, spending hours in the ocean

    safe and fun travels Laura!!

    enjoy Aruba with or without the Tradewinds.

    we have experienced no breeze and spent much time in the water.

    have a blast

    and the Tradewinds are still being sucked away from this particular storm and other disturbances north of AUA.
    (Aruba is not part of the spaghetti model)
