We were there in late May, 2011, and I also do not remember any mosquitoes.

A wonderful, wonderful trip. Have a great time.

While we were not there in May on our trip we were prepared with bug spray. On one landing we were immediately covered in literally hundreds of mosquitos. The bug spray was on the ship. We never say mosquitos at any other landing.

I would take some bug wipes with you and have then at all times. We were told each evening the likelihood of mosquitos for the next day but this was an inexact science.

We were there Apr. 2015, and very few mosquitoes (I know because they love me!), but one island had horse flies on the beach, so that was the only time I had to spray.
