Tweedybear, go and have a good time. Once you are there you should totally forget
I too had the fear and I've been told ...make noise.
I,now,will go barefoot and have no worries.
We were walking down the road one day and saw a green skinny stick in someone's driveway. Hm...not a stick
It never moved and it's the only one I have ever seen in over 9 years now...and we stay mainland and on the cayes.
Now, the mosquitoes .....no, joking
Go, have fun and come back to let us know about your trip
