Just want to add to David and Debbie's post, that women should avoid wearing perfume since scent attracts mosquitos. There are some good non-DEET products sold everywhere in Mexico. We prefer Autan brand products, esp the crema which comes in a white tube - have been using for years, and Off spray cans are also widely sold. If you want something with DEET, you can purchase in most camping/outdoor stores in the US & Canada. The mosquito that carries dengue is a daytime feeder, hence daytime protection is critical.
