Staying Healthy on Bonaire – Mosquitoes

January 31, 2016

I had a repeater guest recently ask me about the Zika Virus on Bonaire.  This is a very serious health matter impacting the Caribbean and the Americas. Fortunately, Bonaire is not on the CDC’s list of islands with cases of the Zika Virus.  With that said, I always speak to how to stay healthy when it concerns the matter of mosquitoes.  Having lived on two Caribbean islands,  I  have noticed mosquito activity is at it’s highest,  before dawn and after dusk.  Also, after a rainy spell, mosquito activity is higher.  With that said, always apply bug repellant. I particularly recommend you apply before going out at night for dinner.  As far as a product, I won’t make recommendations as you may have your own preference but if your able to, use a product with DEET. Check with your doctor for recommendations.
