I'm sure it's long gone but every visit I always leave a bottle (unused) of sunscreen down there. I don't know if it's cause here in FL I usually head down there with a good tan anyway or the canopy or what, but I've decided to stop taking sunscreen down there as I never use it.

A good way to save a little weight is I buy a dozen or so of those small plastic bottles in the drugstores to fill up with face wash, shampoo, lotion etc.

Moonpie, you are getting good advice based on our experience last week at BDC. I do recommend a good small flashlight (like a mini maglight) per person. This is especially true if you want to wander a bit at night.

My wife doesn't like bugs at all but she did really well at BDC. I always walked first to clear the path and she even tolerated a medium sized spider in our cabina for two days. (Once it got into the sink, I needed to step in and release it outside).

Also, at least with our cabina, things got in because the doors have about an inch clearance under them. Plus, they can get through the thatch. Don't let the bug stories scare you away. BDC is amazing and most of the bugs are quite pretty in their own ways.

We wondered about the sun factor on the Osa. I would assume the sun is quite strong when we are in it (on the beach, by the pool). When we are walking trails I would imagine we are protected. Sadly, our skin hasn't been exposed to the sun's rays since August since we live up north!

I did purchase some Nalgene bottles from REI thanks to this forum for putting shampoo, lotions, etc. into.

It's funny, I don't think I've ever made it completely in the pool, even after a long hike where I'm melting. Maybe cause I go in May, I don't know but the pool is always freezing! I even asked someone once why this was so and they it was due to the wind off the ocean maybe. You'd think it would be like bath water with the heat.

Back to the critters, I did have a real ugly looking spider in my closet, but other than just the little tiny bugs around the lights that was about it. I did have a lot of termites come out between 5-7pm if my lights were on, especially near the bed, but I think this is very seasonal and if I remember correctly it's May when they're most active (breeding?). Also, remember if something does land on you, wave it away, don't slap at it as I did on the driveway, it was a wasp and I got a painful sting on my neck.
