Diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika may be present. Seasonal risk will vary by country.

For those countries with disease present, risk is highest in urban and semi-urban areas, but may also occur in rural areas; insect avoidance measures are highly recommended all year round. Travelvax believes that the best defence is to understand their habits, dress properly and use an effective insect repellent in the correct manner.
