Hi! Hoping you might be able to help me out on this one.
We love going to FMB every year and this year we're also taking a day trip over to Cayo Costa. It's the day trip that's got me worried because I can't just pop back into our beach rental to get shade. My husband is really looking forward to this side trip so I want to be able to tag along.
Here's the issue: I'm very, very fair-skinned. I wear sunblock religiously and reapply as often as advised. I avoid peak sun hours typically. The problem is that I still can burn badly with sunblock on. I am also at high-risk for skin cancer. So, keeping it safe is important to me.
Since we fly in, I need a portable beach umbrella that can pack into checked luggage. I think this would make more financial sense for us than buying or renting one.
I was reading up on some portable beach umbrellas but the suggested one I found on another FMB forum is listed on Amazon with multiple complaints due to its poor construction.
What would you recommend? Thanks!!
