As any seasoned traveler to Cancun knows, Sea
Lice and Jellyfish are a way of life. There are certain times
of the year when jellyfish eggs (called Sea Lice) fill the oceans,
waiting to sting the unprotected and unaware. Luckily, we
found out about a truly great product called Safe Sea, which
protects you against the stings of Sea Lice, Jellyfish, Stingrays,
Coral, and any other of the 13,000 stinging organisms that are out
there lurking in the beautiful blue water of the Caribbean.
If you plan on snorkeling,
scuba diving, surfing, swimming, or
otherwise enjoying the fantastic array of water activities in
Cancun, we highly recommend picking up a bottle or two of Safe Sea.
You can read around the internet about it, it is a very popular
product. When we were in Miami Beach, Sandra got tangled up in
a Portuguese Man O War Tentacle - Ouch! It stung for days.
That was before we found out about Safe Sea protective lotion, which
effectively neutralizes jellyfish and Sea Lice stings.
say that between March and September, swimmers in the Caribbean have
a 1 in 4 chance of being stung by Sea Lice. Add onto that the
numerous jellyfish, and the ever-present Fire Coral, and you stand a
pretty good chance of being stung. After all, 13,000 types of
stinging organisms is a lot, don't you think? Every year over
200 million people are stung by marine organisms. It's better
to be safe than sorry!
You can get several varieties of Safe Sea - you can get it with
sun block built in which is our personal choice - no sense wearing
two. You can also get the diver version without sunscreen, or
a variety just for your kids. Safe Sea with SPF 30 is our
recommendation for the average beachgoer.
