Sun cream & mosquito repellent

Hi,

We are currently in Chiclayo and travelling to Mancora tomorrow. We have been trying to find sun cream that isn't spf 100 and more like normal European sun cream but can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know if anywhere in Mancora sells it? Also, does anywhere sell mosquito repellent that is higher than 30% deet? Finally, are there many mosquitoes about now in Mancora? Accu weather tells me the activity is low.

Thanks in advance

Adam

30% deet is just as effective at repelling mozzies as 50% . The only difference is that it needs to be applied mor frequently. I wouldn’t worry about searching out the higher concentration.

Okay, thanks for the advice. I was going off the jungle formula website that suggests 50% feet for more tropical environments. We have 30% so should be okay then.
