While it can make for some interesting tan lines, don’t overlook screening the tops of your feet – in between your sandal straps. Other often-missed locales include the back of your neck, the tops of your hands and your ears.
Spray sunscreen might sound convenient but often it sprays the inside of your day bag, more than your body. Besides being messy and leaking, the spray sunscreens have another possible disadvantage: Your fellow passengers and guides probably won’t be too crazy about having to inhale your spray as you meander downstream. So do everyone, including yourself, a favor and bring strong sunscreen lotion, not spray, on your trip!
