The sun can be deceptively hot, particularly on the coast or when travelling in boats on jungle rivers when the hazy weather or cool breezes can put visitors off their guard; remember, sunstroke is a reality and can make you very sick as well as burnt. Wide brimmed hats, sun screen lotions (factor 15 advisable) and staying in the shade like the locals whenever possible are all good precautions. Note that suntan lotion and sunblock are more expensive in Peru than they are at home, so take a good supply with you. If you do run out, you can buy western brands at most farmacias, though you won’t find a very wide choice, especially in the higher factors. Also make sure that you increase your water intake, in order to prevent dehydration.
