The Mexicans have no bed bugs because they know how to get rid of them.I watched a family that i know that had ants and what they did and it works i tried it,

They shut the windows and get a can and fill it half way with alcohol and lite it.It buns blue and will keep burning until all the air in the room is gone and the can goes out.all things will die nothing lives without air.

it works great.watch your plants they will die also.

Hostel pocna has a huge problem. Never seen so many at once, woke up and was covered in insects at night, turned light on and almost got in a fight with a guy trying to kill them. Told the self-righteous argentine rasta working reception about and he told me to brush them off the mattress. in the morning found them in the cracks in the wall, bed. Beautiful hostel but the bugs are bad...

Have been going to Isla for 14 years, have stayed at various places (not Pocna hostel however!) and have never encountered bedbugs.
