hello, give it some time. it's only been an hour :)

Yes there are bugs, it's a tropical place, nothing really to worry about. I highly doubt you will see a tarantula.

If you need a quick answer, searching the forums will pull up old posts like this:

Not to worry though, they are bigger than your hand and easy to spot.

The big ones are very gentle. Haven't you ever petted one? They make great pets.

found one snuggled up against our room door in Cozumel. Had to go get one of the staff members to move it for me. He took a pen and chased it up on a piece of paper, then let it walk on his hand, so I could take a picture. The little sucker actually came back a couple of hours later, and after seeing the staff guy move it, my daughter did it her self. Kinda cool, and they really are so big that they dont sneak up on you.
