We are on the way to La Manzanilla on Feb. 1st and I just heard about there being a lot of cases of Dengue this past winter. I wasn't too concerned until I googled it and found out that the second time you get dengue could be fatal...I did have dengue fever once before, 20 years ago when I was in Thailand. Oh well, guess there's not much I can do except load up on deet and take my chances....sort of a bummer to have to think about it though...
