Thank you for your suggestion. And thanks to so many of you on this board for your generosity and hospitality. It has been thanks to this board that we have been able to find out about LM, and I can tell it is a beautiful place.
I am a seasoned traveler and have lived in several countries. I was unwavering in my interest to go to La Manzanilla until I was told by the local doctor that the epidemic was as severe as any she has ever seen. She explained to me some of the suffering the locals have been through with their babies, and it's rather uncharitable to label familial concern "paranoia." If it was just me and my wife, we'd be there in a second - but we have two toddlers and a newborn. We are simply trying to be informed so we don't take on a heavy risk. Because the risk can subside rather quickly, getting up to date information is vital, hence my haunting the message board.
Thanks to all of you for being so hopeful. If the dengue threat doesn't lessen substantively and we don't end up going, we will certainly go in the near future.
