Travelers to rural areas of the Dominican Republic are at risk for malaria, with the highest risk in provinces bordering Haiti. In addition, risk in all areas of La Altagracia Province, including Punta Cana and Bavaro Beach (Permanent October 21, 2005). Travelers to malaria-risk areas in Haiti and Dominican Republic should take chloroquine to prevent malaria.
Obviously this has me a bit concerned...I can just imagine sending anti-malaria medication along with my STDs!
Anyone heard anything about this?

I do know that there are bugs and people encourage bug spray ... but that's all I'm planning to do...
