My husband and I want to travel to Playa Grande this May (mid-month). We were reading about the risks of Dengue Fever in Costa Rica, and it concerned us greatly! Can anyone let us know just how real of a risk it is that time of year, and possibly what we need to do to avoid it? We know to bring insect repellent and wear it faithfully, but I am especially concerned as mosquitos LOVE me (I tend to get eaten alive) and as it is I got West Nile Virus from mosquitos when we traveled to Mexico. It was a mild case, but Dengue Fever scares me a lot more!
Thanks in advance for the help/tips!
