Where we are on the island, yes, we have noticed more mosquitos than the normal-altho they do seem to be less in the last few days of dry weather.

The heavy, daily rains have ceased and now its only an occasional nightime shower, which is the norm for this time of year.

Mosquitoes are most active at sunrise & sunset.

If you are going to be on the beach or outside after 5 PM & are prone to mosquito bites then put on some repellent especially around your ankles & arms.Usually by 7 or 7.30 they quiet down. Here in Playa El Agua we have not noticed a problem.

I'm one of the lucky ones that are mostly unaffected by them however my wife would attract a mosquito if it was a kilometer away

Mosquitos have never been a big problem for me during my visits but while at Lagunamar Resort I was constantly being attacked by little flies that appeared to be distant relatives of our canadian black flies. They were persistent and their painful little bites were very annoying. Also they came out at night and avoided lit areas. The bartenders indicated those little buggers were active due to recent rains.
