We agree with munichchick- were there last September-it rained almost every night(but never during the day).Skeeters (or something)were biting only at night, but were worse when it was still and no breeze. We found these great moist towelettes at a local drug store that had bug repellent in them. Rubbed them on our arms and legs before we sat outside, and we were fine.The ones that did get us (mostly on our ankles/legs) did itch like a sun of a gun, however. As most have already said, take benadryl cream,cortizone cream, and my favorite and best remedy for bug bites- rhuligel- expensive, but worth it. In the scheme of things,it was nothing compared to the great time we had! I had the worst bug bites ever in Punta Cana,Domincan Republic when we were there this past January.
