Thank you for your review! We are very sorry to hear about the mosquitos. There are a few days a year that are very bad....and it sounds like you had one of those days. It is unpredictable and for that we are sorry. We are happy to hear that you did enjoy the cruise and Cayo Costa State Park. Thank you for cruising with us! :-)
