Bring on the Heat, Just Not All At Once
By Fina Scroppo
Access to long sunny days and tropical warmth is a big draw for the Canadian traveller. The key is to know when to say when!
When Scott Chilton went to Costa Rica a couple of months ago, he was looking forward to the tropical climate of the jungle paradise. But two days into his trip, his holiday almost came to an end. He was feeling feverish, drowsy, queasy and his skin was cool to the touch. His body was dehydrated not only from being in scorching temperatures, but also from drinking soft drinks and alcohol and lounging in a hot tub. Scott had heat exhaustion. He spent nearly three days in bed recuperating and wasn’t fully himself for almost a week.Add a comment
