Jewel Dunn River Sand Fleas?

Hi! We are going to Jewel Dunn River at the end of January 2014. Can anyone who has been there tell me how the sand flea and mosquito situation is? I'm allergic to both and was eaten alive in Puerto Rico a year and a half ago. I was still itching in spots months later! Any info on this would be so so helpful! Thanks!

There are bees and they tend to congregate around the bars as the sweet syrup brings them in along with all other sweet things in your drinks. Also the need for bug repellant is a trip by trip thing for us. We usually go in the same time of year but it seems some trips we need the spray much more than others. have a great trip

I've never been to a resort anywhere in the Caribbean that didn't have mosquitoes, sand fleas and bees around the bars. Some have more, some have less. They may or may not bother YOU. But they're always there so go prepared.
