Sun, beaches, clear blue water;these are just a few of the things that make the Dominican Republic one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. The quickest way to end an otherwise happy trip, however, is to become injured or ill. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Sister Resorts offers a few tips on safety and staying healthy during traveler’s stays at their luxurious all-inclusive resorts located in the breathtakingly beautiful Dominican Republic.
Know the water ¾With so many great activities to enjoy in the ocean, proper water safety is of the utmost importance. Knowing where the safest places to dive, snorkel and play is a big part of that. Always having the right equipment and knowing one’s limitations in regards to how strong of a swimmer a traveler is can prevent injuries or even worse. Paying close attention to tides and reefs as well as being aware of danger spots is always advisable.
Use plenty of sunscreen ¾Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Sister Resorts knows that a terrible sunburn can make the rest of a vacation miserable. This can be anything from that painful sting of a fresh burn to severe sun damage causing blistering that may even need medical attention. Taking care of one’s skin and applying sunscreen will help to ensure that vacationers will comfortably enjoy their stay for the duration of their vacation.
Stay hydrated – Drinking plenty of liquids, particularly water, is important when being active and spending time in the sun. Sweat and heat can deplete the body’s natural hydration processes and can leave people weak, dizzy, nauseous or worse. Heat stroke can sometimes occur when the body is not receiving enough fluids in extreme heat. Visitors that are not used to the type of heat and activity level experienced in the Caribbean are especially warned about the hazards of dehydration. Alcohol use can also contribute to lower fluid levels and drinking plenty of water at the same time is strongly encouraged. No matter where travelers are, if they are in the sun, they should have water nearby.
Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Sister Resorts wants everyone to enjoy a safe vacation, and encourages visitors to be alert, travel in groups and let others know of daily plans. Knowing the area and even using photos to mark important places and street signs can help with avoiding getting lost.
