Mosquitos in Embera Native Area of Chagres National Park?

We will be visiting the Embera Native Area of Chagres National Park. We will be wearing Deet, but would still like to know if mosquitos are a problem in that region. Any suggestions for how to dress on that day? Thanks!

Hi There, when do you plan to go there ? It depends also about the season (Rainy or Dry).

I was there yesterday and no mosquitos at all!

Best regards,

More than the season, mosquito activity depends on the time of day. Mosquitos are most active at dawn and dusk. Using DEET is always a good idea, no matter what time it is, when you're going to be in or near the jungle. Especially so with the rise in Dengue cases in Panama City and the lowland areas. When hiking in the jungle, I use repellent and also wear long sleeves and long pants.
