bug Chiapas, Mexico  – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingMexico is a warm country with lots of nature, and has lots of species of animals, including bugs and insects! In the cities, there are mosquitoes, cucarachas (cockroaches) and other kind of bugs. I am not affected by it, and I don´t think other people either. It’s the same in Holland, you also have mosquitoes and you just have to buy mosquito spray so they do not bite you!  If you are outside the city, you have to be a bit more careful, because there are more insects. In the jungle it is always better to protect yourself by wearing long sleeves. So yes there are insects in Mexico but it’s part of the nature. Also insects can be pretty amazing, I think!
  
The mosquitoes, bugs and insects are not going to stop you from doing your day to day activities. If you go hiking in the mountains or in the jungle, you have to be careful if you go off the trail. Watch out for spider nests, for example. But normally if you go hiking off the trails you are with a local guide who will keep you safe!
