Taking antimalarial prescription drugs during the duration of your trip, sleeping in a well netted or air-conditioned room, wearing insect repellent and wearing pants are all good ways to keep mosquitos and Malaria away. Keep in mind that some countries on the malaria map are red, yellow, and green. The area you are going to may be safe, even though it is close to a red zone!
