How bad are the misquitos in Akumal and around the Yucatan ruins in early may?


Country: Mexico


The main months for mosquitoes are those during the rainy season - June through October. That doesn't mean, though that you won't encounter them in May. Remember that they are at their worst are worst about an hour before and after sunrise and sunset. ask if your hotel provides mosquito nets which can really make sleeping easier. I usually travel with a citronella candle that comes in a can with a lid - i find that it helps, as does the 100% Deet that you can buy at REI.
