Being in a tropical climate, between the sea and the lagoon, you should know that it is helpful to have a mosquito repellent, preferably biodegradable. It is recommended to keep your window in your room closed to avoid evenings accompanied by mosquitos. It is also likely that you may encounter other animals such as iguanas, that are harmless, and badgers.
