Be sure to take DEET with you, we forgot one year and it is very expensive at the resort. However, on most years we take it and find we don't need it. I guess it is effective, because the only time we had a real problem was when we did not have it with us.

We've gone just once in May, but we found that to be "prime time" for our experiences. Usually we go during the winters here in the US - Got a few too many trophy bites that trip. Do pack the deet!

Remember, wear long pants at night, if you don't you will soon understand why....
