Usually insects are seasonal to some degree, they breed at certain times of the year and can be bad if you visit at the wrong time. Are there particular months that are bad in Bocas del Toro? Or are they more of a constant nuisance?
What do you recommend as repellent? Digging thru these forums it seems many folks recommend an oil based repellent since the little f%$#ers get stuck in it. We have some high potency DEET from a trip to southeast Asia that is sorta oily but also sorta smelly and probably carcinogenic. I've also read good things about the special formula they cook up at the Pickeled Parrott, is that the only place you can buy their stuff or do they happen to sell it in Bocas Town too? We were planning on grabbing a water taxi to Isla Bacimentos after stocking up on some groceries in town. Thanks!Edited: 03 April 2012, 05:18
