Wearing Shorts in Guatemala

Jump to last reply

I am headed to Guatemala in January and some in our group who've been there many times say cover up as much skin as possible to avoid mesquito and other bug bites.

However, I travel in knee length cargo shorts and short sleeves whenever possible. Is it really necessary to cover up for bugs or can I just take some deet spray and call it good? I'm wondering if it's just the conservative dress mentality on the part of our fellow travelers or really necessary to cover up.

We will be in Tikal, Uaxactun, Flores and Panajachel amongst other places.

Thanks!
