riu Vallarta and wasps

Hi all I am hoping you can help I went on holiday to Turkey a couple of years ago and the beach was full of wasps burrowing in the sand etc. Is it like that at riu vallarta? Unfortunately I have a fear of them.

You will sometimes see them doing the backstroke right where the highest incursion of the waves meets the sand. So if you walk either on the dry sand, or in the area where the sand is being swept by the waves, you won't have any issues. Just avoid walking in the transition area with bare feet. Or keep an eye on where you are stepping.

lol. you don't like snakes or wasps.. just remember your other post.

Not to worry. if you don't bug them, they won't bug you. Have seen the water snake come close even. and the bees do like to be around the outside Bars (they smell the sweet drinks) some times Lots more than other times,, I just ignore them..Never saw anyone get bit.

lol, bees and wasps are a no go for me, snakes i can deal with but just something about bees and wasps... my daughter freaked me out so much once by telling me i had one following me i ended up jumping in the pool in turkey, they seem to think it is hilarious to scare me, its an irrational fear of being stung or getting one trapped in my hair or ear! Bizzare i know but i suppose thats why it is irrational. I will just stay away from the outside bars :) besides that's what i have a hubby for.. getting me my drinks lol. I was expecting a few at the bars so no prob there, i am sure i will mostly be in the pool water with my daughter, or reading on a lounger.
