    I'm not sure what the limit is on alcohol but I can tell you we went back with 4 bottles of Hennessy White, 1 bottle of Mamajuana, and a bottle of White Chocolate Irish Cream.

    In regards to the pictures of people with lots of bites or a rash on their body, what is this?
    23 April 2017|
    Answer
    Response from Ms123456 | Reviewed this property |
    If it's a lot of bites it's almost always sand fleas (though many people mistakenly claim it's mosquitoes). Use bug spray and reapply often. Some people are bug magnets and other people never get a single bite.
