TROPICAL ISLAND = TROPICAL BUGS
They are tiny and armless, still mosquitoes can be a pest and our local geckoes are not enough to chase them all. While for in-door/out-door the plug-in or coil mosquito repellent are effective, we recommend you use anti-mosquito cream to freely move around, specifically in summer and from dusk.
Having the privilege to live in this region of the island still somewhat preserved and authentic, where the fauna and flora have kept some rights; we share the place with the local animals and insects whose habitats surround us. Inhabitants of sanitized cities, be reassured, the island is pacifist and its small animals too!
