Mosquitos in Leon area

Heading to Leon with our kids soon. Not taking anti-malarials, but wondering how widespread Malaria and Dengue are right now in the city itself and the areas immediately outside it. Will of course bring bug juice, but the CDC offers such extreme warnings--looking for a reality check. Thanks!

there is not anouncement on TV or Radio or on the papers about Malaria or dengue, which by the way when u said your coming? because if you are coming in this month or next do not worry about it, it get so warm and dry that few mosquitos will bother you but is always wise to use bug spray.

I was in Leon 9-11 March, saw no mosquitoes, nor anywhere else in Nica, for that matter.

I should add that we applied bug repellent patches to our arms. We bought them in US.

here at our farm in the hills on the outskirts of Managua we don't have mosquitoes until about end of May or whenever about the second good rain comes in... we'll be glad that at el porton verde we installed screens in all our windows during this dry season!

Leon is drier if not warmer then here so you'll be fine. In the cities someone such as a neighbor might have an uncovered barrel that fills with water and creates thousands of zancudos in a few weeks. But that doesn't happen much until late May and June.
