Mosquitos in December?

Hi, I'll be travelling to the Mayan Riviera on December 11. Does anyone know if there are lots of mosquitos at that time of year? Do I need to bring a bug repellent?

Thanks in advance.

Never had any kind of mosquito problem no matter what time of the year I've gone to Playa....

Never been to Mexico before but going to Bahia Tulum from Nov 3 for 2 weeks. Does anyone have any idea how high the risk of malaria is at this resort as I have not been able to get a definate answer for any site and don't really want to take the tablets if I can avoid them?

Don't worry about Malaria. I'm an American living in Cancun and I've never heard of anyone here getting Malaria. My doc in the US assures me that it is here but I understand that it is deep in the jungle not on the shoreline. There are barely any mosquitos on the coast.
