Guys, there are not only mosqitoes, there are no-See-ums:
No-see-ums are tiny biting flies that often live near water. You often see many of themswarming together in a cloud. Keep your mouth shut or you might breathe some in or swallow them! (It won’t hurt you, but it will probably make you cough.) Biting midges are called no-see-ums because they’re so tiny that it is hard to see ‘um. No-see-ums are less than ¼ of an inch long.
The worst bites are from No-See-Ums, and you need a special repellent for them. And yes, there are LOTS of them, and you will be covered in bites, if you are outside after sunset. LAst year we went to Culebra, i was covered in bites, but i dont even care, it is so worth it, no bites are going to stop me, we are going again next week
