Yes, paradise has its serpents! The incidence of snakebite is so low, though, that to worry about it is to worry too much. Always remember, snakes are more scared of humans than humans are scared of snakes. In any unforced encounter, the snake will get out of your way so fast, you will probably never even know it was there! Insects also don’t present much of a problem. We have some trophy sized scorpions, but a general awareness will be enough to ensure you have no nasty surprises.
