On some of the islands you will encounter the "nono". This is a minuscule "no-see-um" sand fly with a nasty sting. They are most common at daybreak and late in the afternoon, when they come to chew on your ankles. You might not even know you've been bitten until hours later, when the itching starts.
Do not scratch it, however, as that will only aggrevate the pain and cause an infected sore.
The only way to keep these little buggers away is to slather yourself in oil.
