    My husband and I both always tan before we go so the sun doesn't burn us up while we are there. Sunscreen is still a must, but not as much of a concern.

    Going in mid-May, so tanning will begin next week after the Dermatologist appointment for screening. LOL!!! Don't want her knowing how much sun I will be exposed to...

    This is Jack, and I have a lot of German blood. I tan well, but I almost always have a nice red tint, no matter what I do. I do tan before we leave, or just being outside running, etc....gets me ready, but I still burn some. By the 4-5 day if I stay on top of it and don't get to drunk and forget to keep the SPF on, I will get pretty dark, but I can burn at any time.

    GCPSgirl has a quarter cherokee indian in her. We leave in about 80 days, and she tans on a really nice expensive bed. She has tanned twice and already looks very tan. She will probably tan once a week or so until we go. She gets very dark after 3-4 days down south, and rarely burns.

    I am currently Whitey McWhitington. I do like the idea about ordering lotion from Amazon. I hadn't tried that. I will go on today and do so. We leave on May 20 so I will probably start tanning in another week. I can only get there a few times a week so I need plenty of time to build up.

    ughhhh i am soo jealous!! I am not so lucky! :(

    heres a tip. leave the bathing suits at home. They song thong bottoms in the gift shop. Thats all you need at GP :D


    hahaha i used to use that line! my lotion says its in my city but since i didnt pay extra for weekend shipping ill get it monday.

    As far as tanning in mexico.... i wear coppertone spf 30 - blue bottle on my body and coppertone oil free spf 15 (white bottle) on my face. I went through almost THREE bottles in 13 days last year. Thankfully i didnt burn. I just got darker! Darker than Ive ever been ever! Now that i just started tanning, i'm getting dark quick. I think i will forever have the mexican rays in my skin now! :D

    HA!! I am the same exact way! I will probably go tanning before the trip, and then do the spray tan the day before we leave just to top the color off a bit!

    I have some Native American blood, which counteracts the English/Scottish/Irish blood so if I tan before I leave, I will be able to get away with the sunscreen from my moisturizer on my face and SPF 8 on the rest of me. And I only need that to avoid wrinkles :D
