It depends greatly on what part of the country you're visiting.
If you're going where most people don't go (the jungles along the Nicaraguan
border or deep into the swampy lowlands in some remote areas),
then you're safer getting the meds.

There is no vaccine for malaria. The American CDC recommends prophylaxis with Chloroquine. In the cities, beaches or resorts, One can just spray some mosquito repellent.
