Hoping to get some advice about mosquitoes to help us decide how much 'protection' we need for our trip to CR in 3 weeks.
So I am a magnet for mossies :(
Can't go anywhere without them wanting a taste - tried DEET and as long as I'm religious about it I can usually get away with 5 instead of 50 bites if I drown myself in the stuff so obviously we'll be bringing a vat of it with us!
My question is about mosquito nets - none of the 3 hotels we're staying at in Arenal, Monteverde and Montezuma have mosquito nets. I'm taking this as a good sign - if things we're really bad they'd have them right?
My question is whether to buy my own net and bring it with us?
Looked on Amazon and there are a million and 1 types to pick from but most require something to hang it from! Can get an expensive free standing one but worried it'll take up precious space in our luggage and not be worth the effort
Any advice appreciated - I don't want to sleep each night covered in DEET so would a net be a good idea?
