...have never seen it there. That does not mean no place carries it, but we bring it down w/ us when we go. Better safe than sorry and order some before you leave.

The corporate site www.safesea.net offers free ground shipping and only $9.95 per 4oz. bottle...

Do I only need 1 bottle????

...bought it on-line @ their site. Getting the kind w/ the sunscreen certainly can't hurt, especially for snorkeling. As far as "how much to bring", who knows? -that depends on how much you're going to be in & out of the water. Also, I would not offer any testamonial that this is stuff is a sure-thing prevention against pica pica/everything that you might run across that could make you uncomfortable... 'have not used it enough personally (3-4 times) to make such claims... haven't got stung while using it either though.

since you werent getting stung, do you know if other people were getting stung when you were in the water?

austink, I can't tell you that either. I have friends that have used it a number of times and said that they were not stung. And even though they continue to use it, they still hesitate to say that they positively would have been stung without it. They use it more as a better safe than sorry sort of thing. I've never yet heard of anyone that used it that was stung anyway, for whatever that is worth.

You may have noted other comments here regarding getting rinsed off in fresh water immediately and getting your bathing suit all rinsed out very well too. It seems to me then that the Safe Sea should be applied to all parts of your body, even those that will be covered. It is only going to neutralize where it has been applied. That said, what size of sunscreen do you generally take with you? I usually take an 8 to 12 oz bottle of sunscreen and will use it all up with everyday application.

How often are you going to be in the water?

I'd be very surprised if you can buy Safe Sea in Belize. You should buy it at home.

I have two packets of safe sea in my dirty little hands in Belize City. I think someone here is getting the distributorship for it, but doesn't have it yet. Buy and bring with you if you're visiting this month.
