Default Re: Malaria medications Western Carib.

It is, however, a good idea to wear insect repellent containing DEET (I know, but you don't have to do this at hom) while anywhere in the Caribbean, as dengue is spread by day-biting mosquitoes. While it's not life-threatening the way malaria is, dengue is not pleasant for the few days it takes to ride out the disease.
