Discuss your trip during a travel consultation with your doctor or in a travel clinic, preferably six to eight weeks before departure.

Important health risks

Malaria

In the east of the country (especially in Gracias a Dios and Colon) there is a moderate risk of malaria. The more one will travel eastward, the higher the risk of malaria (30% P. Falciparum). We recommend the use of mosquito-repellent measures from dusk till morning. For people with an increased risk, we sometimes recommend preventive malaria tablets, or taking an emergency treatment with you.

In the west of the country the malaria risk is low to very low. We recommend the use of mosquito-repellent measures from dusk till morning.

In case of fever during or after your journey, get tested for malaria as soon as possible.
