Bug bites — how long before they show up?

I left Great Exuma on Friday morning. By Sunday evening, I developed about 8 itchy bites on my legs. Could the reaction be delayed, or is it more likely that I was bitten by something after arriving home?

Sand fly bites often take 24 hours or more to show up and there is significant variance. So I'd say it's likely a delayed reaction.
