Am so excited off to Riu karamboa in the morning for 2 weeks and can't wait. Please can someone tell me if flies are a problem in July as I'm sure I have read somewhere on the forum that they are. If so are there any tips to put off the pesky blighters? Much appreciated for any info.

1. Re: Flies

We went to Sal in Nov 2007, so not sure about your island but flies were prominent. You don't really have to worry about them attacking you. The biggest problem in my opinion was at the outside restaurants when cold food was served. Afternoon tea was put out with lovely cakes etc. but they were not covered up properly and flies were all around the food.

I did not eat any of the cakes.The Inside restaurants were fine.

Hope I don't put you off as we enjoyed our holiday and would go back.
