    Quite a few people are reporting that sea lice season is upon us in Cancun.

    Sea lice are not lice at all but are microscopic larvae of the thimble jellyfish. The larvae are the size of a speck of pepper and when trapped between your swimsuit and body can fire their stinging cells resulting in itchy red welts in sensitive spots!

    I saw a lot of the adult jellyfish in thin ribbons across the sea yesterday on our booze cruise to Isla. See pic below:

    Many people use Safe Sea which is a suntan lotion that can be effective against Sea Lice, but you can't buy it in Cancun so pick some up before you go if you're going to be in Cancun during the next couple of months.

    You Can Buy Safe Sea from Amazon Here

    Play it safe and order some Safe Sea before your trip. I ordered 6 bottles over the weekend. I used it last year in Ambergris Caye, and the stuff really works well.

    I couldn't get the links to work either. Do a Google search for safe sea, and it will take you to the manufacturers site where you can order it directly from them. Right now, if you order 6 bottles, shipping is free.

    That's strange as the links were definitely working up until recently as I can see sales from it. But I just checked and the link has changed for some reason. The link below seems to work OK and I also fixed the first one in the thread:

    Buy Safe Sea From Amazon

    If you buy from the Amazon link above then I make 50 cents per bottle, all of which helps fund my extravagant playboy lifestyle. Another couple of safe sea sales and I'll be able to treat myself to a six pack of beer
    :wink:
