Hi, My husband, best friend and I (all mid 40s) are going the last week of October for our birthdays. This is our first time to visit Roatan. I put a deposit down on a house and my friend and I are freaking out with all the reports of the sand fleas. I get welts from mosquitos and am olive skin complected while my friend has pale skin. We are so worried that these pests will ruin our vacation. We usually go to Playa del Carmen but wanted to try a different spot. The thought of having to spray Deet or Skin so Soft all day long in addition to tanning lotion for 7 days is truly worry-some and I do not know if we should cancel the trip. (My daughter was bit up in PDC in May which was our first time to experience this and she STILL has red blotches on her skin.) Any suggestions would greatly help.
