Are there a lot of mosquitoes in Mexico?

I went to Mexico in April 2013 and didn't have Mosquitos but sand flees are annoying!

 

Saw a cockroach near our room but it was on it's back so I figured that was bad and laughed at it hehe

 

The fact she wrote it freaked me out - just the one reviewer of thousands I've read. Struck me she'd mention it. Thanks ladies!!

I CANNOT retire there if there are snakes......   what about Belize and Panama? anyone been there? that's the other 2 options but costa rica is number one. we're already looking at a new condo there to buy but it will be bye bye costa rica if there are snakes!

I have been there in November, February, and July - I noticed them the most in November and hardly at all in July. I primarily noticed them around dusk if we were still by the beach. My fiance has a bad habit of not closing the balcony door so we would get a few in our room - if you keep the door closed you'll be fine :)

 

One out of the three times sand fleas were an issue - sure makes lounging on the beach uncomfortable! But the other 2 times never noticed them at all.

Been to Belize... I found it more "buggy" than other tropical locals (sand fleas, scorpions, cockroaches) Honduras too- but both were pretty! And didn't see snakes where we were (though I'm sure they are in the juggle brush)... Just didn't see them at our resorts.

Oh good! I was thinking I have to lather myself in citronella to reduce bug bites.

@@calgarybride2015 Here in the tropics, there are a bunch of spiders, thanks God they moved when people arrives and settle, but many spiders don't, this is your lucky day, tarantulas run away from humans, so If you see one, It is because you are in the jungle, although you may see one in a resort, It will be 1 out of 1000 chances

 

I love the nature and go into jungle, I work in many resorts and also stay a lot in them, in 5 years I have never see one in a resort

 

happy planning!!

So while I know when you travel anywhere tropical there are a lot of 'wildlife' and bugs and spiders.

I have been to Mexico in the Mayan and it took some getting used to have large iguanas, raccoons and monkeys around, but never really saw any nasty bugs or spiders. I really appreciated I saw nothing in Cuba although it was there.

 

Spiders are my worst fear in the world, even the smallest one will make me scream like a little girl! No really! lol

 

So today I was on Trip Advisor because I hadn't looked at my resort reviews in awhile - Grand Sirenis - and the lady mentioned seeing Tarantulas, no really she listed it in her review.

OMG! really? like I knew they would probably be in Mexico (but how dare they really) but right on the resort? I hope not, I hope she meant down the road somewhere else.

 

I am already have heart palpitations about it, and wonder if I saw one that I may die and there would be no wedding.

 

Am I the only crazy fool?

 

Maybe I can pack some raid haha!

Funny!!! Always you will have good and bad reviews, by your own judgement you can go and believe what you want :) It is always like that :) Trip Advisor is my number one site, BUT I always do my own judgement because not all the time everyone is happy!

CalgaryBride!

Oh girl, I hate spiders too. But good news!! I've lived in Playa for over a year and I've never seen a spider! I know they're here - but I just have been lucky to not see one! It's getting a little weird... but this is why I welcome the lizards that live wild in my apartment, and I guess it works :)

So don't cancel just yet! haha
