Hi everyone..Does anyone know if Grand Turks has an issue with mosquitos during the month of May?... a seasoned cruiser told me that I should watch out for the mosquitos around that time....so i figured I asked the members if they encountered anything like that:confused:

I don't remember mosquitos at all in Grand Turk (or Grand Cayman or HMC), and mosquitos just LOVE me! :p

It's the mountainous, rain-forest sort of islands you need to worry about, I think. We had lots and mosquitos in Jamaica and St. Thomas/St. John. That was in May, 2003.

We were there in late April of this year and didn't see any bugs at all. We walked about in town in the morning and spent the afternoon at the cruise pier beach. No bugs.

We were there in June of '06 and I don't recall any mosquito issues. However, whenever we travel we always pack a bottle of repellant that includes DEET. When we did a cave tubing excursion in Belize we had the only bottle on the bus ... and gladly shaed it with others. DEET is the secret.
