Default biodegradable sunblock ??

We are doing the jeep and snorkel in Cozumel and the excursion says that anyone who wishes to snorkel must use biodegradable sunblock. Not a big deal, I will ... IF I COULD FIND IT!! Any input would be great

I looked EVERYWHERE at home to find biodegradable sunscreen as I didn't want to get ripped off on my vacation. I gave up. THEN I came on vacation (actually am there right now!) and found that BANANA BOAT BOTANICALS, has a sticker on it down here that says "Biodegradable" on it, and it's the EXACT same product I bought at Walmart at home. It's called Banana Boat Botanicals, the one I brought was SPF 15. It's in a green tube and has a very nice scent. Mine didn't have the sticker on it but it looks like the version down here was just stuck on after the fact. But they are the same product so it's ok. Incidentally they charge double down her (Cancun) than they did back home in Canada. Anywhere you buy sunscreen at home should have it. I think there are other SPF levels in this line too.

Default I searched too

Last time we were there I searched high and low before we left. I ended up buying it from Panama Jack. I went to their online catalog and bought a couple small tubes. It did come in different SPF numbers.

I thought it was expensive, but it was cheaper than the sunblock that the snorkelling people sold. Since they wanted to make money off the tourists, they were very strict about having the right sunblock and checked what we had with us.

I don't know where you are snorkeling on Cozumel, but we found a quiet little spot that had an open air bar that had the best lime margaritas of our trip. I wasn't driving the jeep, so I can't tell you exactly where it was. The snorkeling was great and we had a blast. I hope your experience is great too.

I sail in days!!!!!! Wowwee
