absolutely love my husband and I and we usually get bitten over the

countryside and some fishing. We are sailing on Jan,. 6, 2007. Also, when do you start taking this medication??
There's no need to take medicine for malaria on a "Panama Canal" cruise. The U. S. government cleaned out the mosquitos, and thus the malaria, in the "Panama Canal Zone" before completing work on the canal. The area is no longer swamps, and thus no longer a breeding ground for mosquitos, so the malaria has not returned.
