This is the tropics, you are going to get roaches even in the cleanest of places, but probably no more than the odd one. Don't leave food/crumbs around of course. I could tell you different, but it wouldn't be true. Like I say though, you are not going to be faced with an infestation I feel certain!

thanks for your responses, i suppose its the "infestation" im more concerned about. I have flashbacks from going into some of my clients home in the past.

Reading your posts seems to indicate that you're very nervous about bugs. Perhaps the tropical third world isn't for you, there are also doctor flies, terrantulas, sharks, lion fish etc etc

There's always Atlantis in the Bahamas

Your perception is inaccurate! I am quite fond of third world tropics! I can tolerate a great deal. Fortunately my skin affords me the luxury of not being as affected than my non melanin having counterparts. I can still ask questions if i want. I was not asking for subjective interpretation.

Much Thanks Gina

I think it's a reasonable question and so I would say no, no infestations.

we saw absolutely no bugs or lizards at Tobacco Caye in March - not even lizards or mosquitos.

Yea, things may have changed a bit since 2011 when the question was posed......just kidding, I thought trip Advisor closed threads after six months.
