Default Sunscreen????

I heard that in Mexico, they don't allow you to use sunscreen unless it's "Biodegradable" or something?????? Where can I find this stuff, or is most sunscreen bio-degradable?????

Hi Kelly..
The restrictions on sun screen you're referring to are only at XCaret, the eco theme park on the mainland.
There are no such restrictions throughout the rest of Mexico.

Actually you must use an eco-safe sunscreen for ANY of the reefs when snorkeling or swimming. Most commercial sunscreens are toxic to the marine life found of the reefs. You can buy what you need on the web or email me and i'll tell you a great product I use.

What was the great sunscreen product to use that you were referring to. I plan to do the Stingray City Tour in Grand Cayman in a few weeks and I would think they would want me to use the eco-friendly sunscreen there as well.

Every time I snorkeled in the Caribbean, I rthe rules were no sunscreen. I didn't even know there was an eco-friendly kind. I'd also like to know the brands that offer it.

The eco-friendly products i like best are made by a company called Caribbean Pacific. Their website is www.cpskincare.com. They have a nice selection for both adults and kids. Besides be eco-safe they are great if you have sensitive skin.
