Dengue Threat and other Stuff for Travelers

May 20th, 2006

I have written before about Dengue Fever as something many travel agents fail to tell their Costa Rica bound clients, so I will mention here that if you are Costa Rica bound, especially during the rainy season (now through November), bring the Off or another bug repellent.

This is an easily managed problem if you just don’t have a problem with the tangy smell of 612. Hint: You can still smell sexy at night as the Dengue skeeter only bites during the day. Hint 2: If you are on the beach and are using your Off and some guy seems overly attracted to you… I urge caution!

Another warning, though THIS one you cannot do anything about, regards a recent study by the University of Costa Rica informing anyone who has perhaps been living in another galaxy for the past 30 years, that the taxi drivers in San Jose (and perhaps elsewhere) have tinkered with their taxi meters (marias) so that they add few extra colones to your fare.

As I said, not much you can do about this. Me? I NEVER tip those clowns any more.
