sun burn costa ricaTravelers crave the sun. They flock to Costa Rica, seeking warm temperatures and gold-drenched shores. They find them with ease - and sometimes suffer for it.

Sun damage, including burns or strokes, is common in the Central Pacific. Areas like Los Suenos, Jaco and Manuel Antonio boast open miles and steady heat. This can easily cause complications for tourists, especially those who are unprepared.

Fight back against rising temperatures. Bring SPF-infused lotions on every outing and apply them liberally. Use a wide-brimmed hat to create shade, and drink water throughout the day.

Refusing to do these things can result in severe sun burns, spotting, peeling or even dehydration. Any of these symptoms can ruin a family vacation or sport fishing tour. Plan ahead, therefore, and protect skin against the sun.
