..and if your hubby tends to sleep 'in', the winter days are short, so there's much less daily exposure as well!!

I don't know where you are staying but Dreams provides the best sunscreen we have used.

I should have been more specific. It is provided in your room along with Shampoo etc. at no charge.

Sorry, I meant your check in luggage and didn't read that you only wanted to do carry-on.

No it is not normally $21.

I prefer to check a small suitcase so usually take my own. But many times I have run out or wanted a different number protection. If I remember correctly it was in the 95 to 120 peso range.

And DO buy it at a regular pharmacy or grocery store downtown, not a resort hotel gift shop. Also look around a bit, as I've found very different pricing for the exact same brand from shop to shop.
