Dehyrdation can be a dire medical issue that many people do not take seriously when they are on tropical vacations.
- One of our favorite sayings is “don’t let dehydration ruin your vacation”.
I personally have experienced dehydration on vacations and it is not fun to say the least. If you decide to go on a tropical vacation, nice for you- you deserve to rest and relax in the sizzling weather! Just make sure you follow some safety tips so you get the most out of your vacation. First and foremost, make sure that the air conditioning in your hotel room works as soon as you check in. This is something that people often overlook because they believe that the air conditioning in resorts and hotels typically works. Chances are it works perfectly, however there is a small risk that the air conditioning is faulty and in that case it would be really uncomfortable in your room when getting ready and trying to go to sleep. If the air conditioning in your hotel room does not seem to be working right, call the front desk and they will send an Heating and Air Conditioning specialist to help you immediately. Next tip is to go into your air conditioned room or into the air conditioned lobby of the hotel between the hours of 12-2. The heat and UV rays are severe while in those hours and you are likely to get dehydrated and overheated. The most crucial tip is to drink water, especially if you are consuming alcohol. As soon as you think too hot, go into the air conditioning, get another sizable glass of water, and stay out of the heat if you need to.
