Sandfleas?

The topic says it all..... are there sandfleas in Placencia? I've heard, yes and no.... Please if someone could clarify, that would be great. I've also heard there are tiny black flies that bite and leave a nasty ichy spot??

Anyone??

thanks

Hmmmmmmm. Some people sure are affected by them more than others. Placencia is NOT a sand flea haven, for goodness sakes. Some resorts spray for them on a regular basis, but most places don't.

So, take some deet and spray your ankles and calves each morning, and enjoy your stay in Placencia.

Where there is sand, there are sand fleas and flies and critters, the whole world over. Enjoy the beach.
