Not anymore than in other places in Panama. I have never had to use a mosquito repellent while going there, but I usually use long pants and long sleeve shirts, since you're walking in a tropical forest the insects besides mosquitos may be attracted to you...hahaha

I am so sorry to be late in seeing this question and answering it. No, this area in Panama was cleared of Yellow Fever decades ago by the former American "owners". There were very few mosquitoes or other insects that bothered us during the dry season, when we visited.

We were not worried about yellow fever but there are a lot of mosquitoes. Take repellent and long sleeved clothes. Great place to view Hummingbirds.
