We are travelling for the 1st time from UK to the Caribbean, to Aruba at the end of March. I would appreciate any advice regarding immunisations, mosquito problems etc. It might seem a silly question to US citizens but it's a worry for me since we're traveliing with elderly mother and 3 toddlers (ages 2/4/6).

Thank you.

It is quite windy in March so there is no mosquito problem - we go for 3 weeks every year (9 years) from Feb. into mid-March and my DH has never been bitten. I couch it that way because the little buggers love him and not me - must be the alcohol lol! Anyway, if you're going for the first time there are a couple of bbs you might want to check out. www.visitaruba.com and www.aruba-bb.com for restaurants and stuff to do. I check them myself continually for several months before we go to see what's new. Linda

The only time we had any problems with bugs was in the evenings, when we were dining outside. After the first episode, I used some bug repellant and it worked great. We had no problems during the daytime. Enjoy!

I am there every year at the same time as Linda and I have never been bit, but this year (January) has seen a bit more rain than usual, so I have packed some OFF for the first time ever. I'm not concerned at all though.

If you want an effective, natural product, Cactus Juice works remarkably well. I purchase mine on eBay.
