where to buy suntan lotion

We travel with carry-on luggage only, so can't bring a large supply of suntan lotion. I am wondering where we can find a selection a suntan lotions, specifically Coppertone.

Coppertone (among other brands) is available at IGA & Graceway Gourmet stores. All gift shops (including in resorts) will have various brands & types... No need to worry, it's readily available.

If "we" is more than two it might be cheaper to check a bag with the essentials than to buy sunscreen when you arrive. Stuff on the island is expensive!

Well if your first checked bag is $40 on AA now, thats a lot of Coppertone!

WOW!!!! I didn't know that AA was charging that much for a "first" checked bag. When did that happen?

On second thought maybe it's a good idea to try to find Coppertone on the island.

(Forty bucks a bag for checked luggage, added departure fees...what next?)

Is there biodegradable suntan lotion in small amounts in clear containers you can carry on the plan?

Smallest we have found was 5oz. Just get it and put in a 3oz bottle.

We put our 16 ounce bottle of suntan lotion in our checked bag in hopes no one would notice and they didn't. Either way.

You can put as many oz as you want in your checked bag. Only 3oz in carry on. I think they are bringing carry on.

You can request a medical supply(topical non-prescription skin lotion) waiver $$ on that checked in bag. DR. JIM
