Hi all, Is there mosquitos? Do I need to bring repellent spray ☺️
We went in March and didn’t have any need however I would take some roll on repellent and one of those bug machines to plug in just to be on the safe side. It is not easy to purchase these things once you get there or any antiseptic creams if you were to get bitten so best be safe than sorry. I am sure you will have a lovely time.
