Hi evberyone . Here is a question that has come up. I am someone who burns in 10 minutes and does not tan , i go pink then back to white.... I also cannot stand intense heat .... why am i going you mightask... well because i have never gone somewhere tropical .. I wonder if i will be miserable , or is the breeze cooling , and if i stay out of the sun 10-2 pm will i be ok . I dont want to make the rest of my group miserable because i will be . Should this be a major concern . Thanks

bring lots of 30+ weight sunscreen, and keep putting it on. you'll be fine...

Marty is right on the 30+.
Keep it on all the time, even after showers in the evenings, then again in AM. Keeping a buildup going.
Also hat and big white shirt to coverup during long periods in the sun and boat rides.

LOL! dont forget your behind if you snorkel. i did that once & couldnt sit down for 24 hours. it will help to wear a t-shirt over your suit whenever in the ocean. much of the time there is shade nearby, except if you are walking or boating somewhere.

it will be hot. it will be humid. there is usually a nice breeze.

my 'always' advice: dont look for perfection. you will be disappointed. if you go with an open mind you will be pleasantly surprised.

rent or borrow a wetsuit or dive skin to snorkel and make sure your neck is covered/protected on boat rides as the sun reflects off the water something wicked and will roast the back of your neck. Just my two cents worth. Make sure to save some rum for me and my band of assorted sots visiting in November

If you have a problem with heat and humidity, then don't come right now. You'd die from heat stroke in about an hour. LOL
It's hot as hell and NOOOOO breeze.

Give it another month or so and our breeze will be back. Then it's bearable.

Nice gentle breeze since yesterday. If you create a draft through your house and use fans you can be very comfortable in the tropics.
