For you return to Sangster Airport, you will generally be picked up some 3 hours before scheduled flight time.

Mosquitos do not bother me, so I have not noticed a peak or slack season for them. Sand fleas do not bother me either.

Weather in August is very humid and hot with nearly daily humidity-driven brief showers.

Actually your transfer should pick you up 4 hours prior to your flight. That is what our driver did and it was just right with about 45 min to eat and get to the gate. We have been to Negril in Feb, March, April and now July. I would say there are more mosquitos when there is more rain. Avoid the beach early in the day and at twilight. Spray with Off or the like before you go to the beach on your ankles and you should be fine. I got about 8 mosquito bites this time and mosquitos LOVE me., Late August should be quiet. We were there this month and it was low occupancy. Read my review of RPTB. It was really enjoyable.
