"Carry an Insect Repellent" Ruinas Kohunlích Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Stephen-KarenConn

  Palm Trees in the Jungle at Khunlich
by Stephen-KarenConn

We did not even think about carrying an insect repellent on our cruise, but in Kuhunlich you're deep in the jungle and far from any cruise ship. Mosquitoes were plentiful here, but not overbearing. I did get a couple of bites.

That might not be a problem except for the fact that some mosquitoes here in southern Mexico are known to carry malaria. Having had malaria once - in the Philippines - I know it's not to be taken lightly and can even be fatal. I would strongly suggest that those visiting Kuhunlich carry an insect spray that contains Deet, and apply it before entering the jungle.
