October in Belize - 08/23/00 11:56 PM

My girlfriend and I are planning on vacationing in Belize mid-October; however, I read information on one website that called this time of year the "Mosquito" season. Should we expect this to be a problem?

Did you go to Berkeley in 1985-1986 ?

One would always take insect repellent, and most of the time it is not needed, but if you need it, I am told to use one with a high % of deet. They also spray in San Pedro.
Just go and do not worry, enjoy.

We have been in SP the end of October the last two years, and will be there the 29th this year. Take a good repellant (2 cans) and you will be fine. Mostly a problem in some of the passageways by the rooms after dark. The breeze usually keeps the little buggers under control.
**********Little Known Useless Info*********
The official San Pedro "Skeeter Season" started this year on August 16th at 4:45 pm. A terrific wave of rain swept in from the reef at 4:30 and lasted 15 minutes (zero visibilty), at 5 pm the sun returned and 4 billion mosquitos woke up and visited with us for the next 8 days. They are still there, we are not. Nothing serious, just a minor irritation. Don't try the Skin So Soft need higher % DEET to be happy.

Have fun.
