Take precaution and ALWAYS use repellent against mosquitos when you travel here and knowing mosquitos like your scent ;-)
The last months we're having a serious outburst of this dengue-fever wich is transmitted by the aegis aegipty mosquito

If you have specific questions just sent me a PM

Ditto. I've had dengue a couple of times and wouldn't wish it on anyone. Best of luck.

Cheers,
